Prisoners Helmer Looks Into “Sicario”

“Prisoners” director Denis Villeneuve is circling the Taylor Sheridan-scripted drama feature “Sicario” at Thunder Road and Black Label.

The story deals with a murky legal loophole that allows mercenaries to cross into Mexico to corral drug kingpins, as long as they are accompanied by a legitimate law officer.

In this film, said officer is a Tucson female cop who is joining two delta force-type rangers trying to apprehend a drug lord. Once across, she encounters violence and depravity like she never imagined.

Basil Iwanyk, Molly Smith, Trent Luckinbill and Thad Luckinbill will likely produce.
