Denis Villeneuve has had a big last six months, with well-regarded thrillers "Prisoners" and "Enemy," both starring Jake Gyllenhaal, arriving in theaters. Now the Quebecois director has tapped Emily Blunt to be in his next nail-biter, "Sicario."

Per Variety, the story follows a police officer from Tucson, Arizona, who crosses the Mexican-American border with a pair of mercenaries to track down a drug lord. The script is penned by actor-scribe Taylor Sheridan ("Sons of Anarchy"). 

The project is set to start production later this summer. Villeneuve will then follow up with yet another film, a sci-fi title "Story of Your Life," with Amy Adams attached. That one's looking at an early 2015 shoot. Busy guy.

Meanwhile, Blunt is set to "live, die, repeat" alongside Tom Cruise on big screens with tentpole "The Edge of Tomorrow" (June 6). Plus she's got mega-musical "Into the Woods," with Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep, landing at the year's end.
