‘Teen Wolf’ star Ian Bohen cast in ‘Soldado’ as more details are revealed

Ian Bohen, who currently recurs as Peter Hale in MTV’s Teen Wolf, has been cast in Soldado, the Stefano Sollima-directed sequel to 2015’s Sicario starring Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin.

Bohen will play Carson Wright, a former Marine sniper and an employee of Halliburton, who has an explosive encounter with Matt’s (Brolin) crew.

The cast continues to expand with Matthew Modine recently joining and portrays Secretary of Defense Director James Ridley opposite Catherine Keener, who plays his Deputy Director.

While Emily Blunt was rumored to be returning early on in development, that is not the case.

Soldado does offer up a strong cast with Isabela Moner, who also stars in Transformers: The Last Knight, Jeffrey Donovan, returning as Steve Forsing from Sicario, Jackamoe Buzzell (Hell or High Water, A Million Ways to Die in the West), David Castaneda (End of Watch) and Chris Adams from The Originals.

Elijah Rodriguez has been cast as a “Mexican-American teenager who is caught up between becoming a sicario in the dangerous world of the drug cartels and his desire to do what is right and not lose his humanity,” according to Deadline when the casting was announced.

Sicario was one of the biggest surprise films of 2015, delivering a powerful commentary and examination on the border crisis in America.

“The story picks up with the same male characters that were in Sicario, which was Josh [Brolin] and Benicio [Del Toro]. Emily Blunt’s character is not in it, but my character, Forsing, is also brought back,” Donovan explained about the new film.

“It focuses on these three characters now, going down into Mexico to basically start a war, on purpose, between the rival Mexican cartels. There’s a bigger reason for it, but that’s the beginning of the movie.”

The “government agents Matt and Alejandro who are trying to provoke a war with the Sonoran drug cartel by kidnapping the daughter (Isabel Reyes) of the cartel’s top gangster. Castaneda plays Hector, who is based on the American side of the border and smuggles illegals over the border.”

Taylor Sheridan penned the script for this second installment from Lionsgate and Black Label Media.

Soldado is not only a follow-up to Sicario, it appears the studio sees the project as the middle chapter in a trilogy of sorts. While there is no official date, expect Soldado to arrive in theaters in the fall to qualify for Oscar considerations.
