Exclusive: Italian filmmaker Stefano Sollima on Suburra, and helming the Sicario sequel Soldado


As one of the stand-out productions of the year so far, Suburra is a captivating, dark thriller that weaves between a collection of criminals, from corrupt politicians to drug dealers, highlighting the rather stark lack of difference between the two in some circles. We had the pleasure of sitting down with the man behind the project, Stefano Sollima, to discuss this truly engaging slice of contemporary cinema.

Watch the below video to see Sollima discuss the upcoming Soldado – the sequel to the compelling drama Sicario, which he has recently been announced as the director for.

Suburra is released on June 24th.

Having made it out of Essex alive, aside from the glorious confines of HeyUGuys, Greg can also be found scribbling regularly for Front Row Reviews and many other film-related publications. When not bashing away at a computer, he can also be found occasionally locking horns with the politically diametrically-opposed Jon Gaunt on his radio show, as well as conducting the odd webinar for film schools. Lowlights, thus far, have been the late, great John Hurt admonishing with a 'do you really think like that?', upsetting acclaimed filmmaker Ondi Timoner with his piece for the Sunday Mirror and falling out with the blog editor of the Huffington Post. He also brought Liv Ullmann to tears for a piece for this very site (but in a good way... more of a highlight, that one). He can also be found writing on theatre and music for the Islington Gazette, Ham & High, Hackney Gazette, NME and others. Often found moaning about how tired he is, as well as how frustrated he is – particularly as a musician.
