Prisoners and Enemy director Denis Villeneuve continues to put together the cast for his next film, Sicario. The pic already has Emily Blunt set in the lead as an officer from Tuscon who travels across the border to Mexico with a pair of mercenaries in order to track down a drug lord, and now Variety reports that Josh Brolin is in talks to co-star. The nature of Brolin’s role is unspecified, but the cast also includes Benicio Del Toro and the recently added Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead). Brolin will be seen later this year in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and Paul Thomas Anderson’s highly anticipated Inherent Vice, and he most recently wrapped the survival drama Everest.
