If she pulls it off, Soldado could prove a turning point in Moner’s career. It could also land her a gig in Sicario’s third installment, which is apparently already planned. As Sollima told The Independent in June,
“The idea is to make three anthology movies with some of the core actors in the same world. The reason that I love [Soldado] is because it’s not exactly a sequel; it’s something you can catch and enjoy even if you haven’t watched the first one.”
It will be refreshing to see some new faces in the mix for the Sicario sequel, especially if they could be given a more prominent role down the line. Moner may not have a lot of experience to fall back on, but a lack of familiarity should make it easier for viewers to accept her in her Soldado role without question.
A release date for Soldado has not yet been announced, but Screen Rant will keep you updated as new developments become available.
