Emily Blunt yang memerankan karakter Kate Macer, dipastikan tak akan kembali dalam sekuel Sicario bertajuk 'Soldado'. Sang penulis skrip, Taylor Sheridan mengatakan, “That was my decision, and at some point I’m going to have to talk to her about it. Her arc was complete… I couldn’t figure out a way to write a character that would do her talent justice.”
Taylor menambahkan, "Look what she went through. It was a difficult role. Here I write this lead character and then I use her as a surrogate for the audience. I make her completely passive against her own will so the audience feels the same impotence that a lot of law enforcement officers feel, I drag her through hell, and betray her in the end. It was an arduous journey for the character, and for Emily. That character had arc."
“What do you do next? She moves to some little town and becomes a sheriff and then gets kidnapped and then we have Taken? I had to tell the story that was true to this role, and I didn’t feel like I could create something with that character that would further that world that would do Emily’s character justice. That said, there could be room for Kate somewhere else down the road.”
Sementara itu, Aktor Benicio Del Toro dan Josh Brolin dipastikan akan tampil kembali dalam Soldado. Denis Villeneuve yang menjadi sutradara Sicario, akan digantikan oleh Stefano Sollima.
