Emily Blunt and Benicio del Toro to star in #NMFilm Sicario

Emily Blunt Benicio del toro starring in Sicaro will film in New Mexico

Last year Denis Villeneuve became a red hot commodity with the runaway success of his Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal dramatic thriller, Prisoners, which led Alcon Entertainment to seal a two year deal with the French-Candian writer/director.

The very latest product of that partnership is set to land in New Mexico in just a matter of months. A crime thriller, titled Sicario is slated for production in NM this June.

Earlier this month it was revealed that Villeneauve’s leading lady in the “tense Mexican border crime-drama”, will be Emily Blunt, who starred in the New Mexico film, Sunshine Cleaners back in 2008.

Blunt will play a police officer in the Southwest who crosses the border with a group of mercenaries to track down a dangerous drug lord (hint, not Walter White). The film is already getting a lot of early buzz due to Villeneauve’s attachment and for the gritty premise being heroine driven.

Alcon has been here before with 2010’s post-apocalyptic action film, The Book of Eli and the brand new Johnny Depp sci-fi/drama Transcendence.

And even before production is underway on Sicario there are rumblings all over the web, already looking forward to Villeneauve’s follow-up picture, The Story of Your Life, another sci-fi drama, this time led by Amy Adams, Blundt’s co-star in Sunshine.

How’s that for an #NMFilm string!
