The production ball could get rolling on Extraction 2, the sequel to Netflix action pic Extraction, soon. Directed by Sam Hargrave, written by Joe Russo, and starring Chris Hemsworth, Extraction proved to be a hit upon release back in April of this year. The movie marked a Marvel Cinematic Universe reunion between Hemsworth, Russo, and Hargrave. (Hargrave worked as a second-unit director and stuntman on Avengers: Endgame, which co-starred Hemsworth and was co-directed by Russo.) Extraction was adapted from the Ande Parks novel Ciudad and follows mercenary-for-hire Tyler Rake (Hemsworth) as he fights his way through a city in Bangladesh to get the son of a drug dealer to safety.
Looks like the Tyler Rake story will continue.
Russo later told Collider in an exclusive interview how the sequel came together before detailing how pleased Netflix was with Hargrave‘s work on the movie and the streamer’s enthusiasm to get the ball rolling on said sequel. At the time, Russo shared, “I think there were preliminary conversations prior to release. Everyone was very happy with the movie and very excited about it. There was good energy going into the release. And certainly, the release cemented it. But yeah, it had been a conversation that’s been going on for a little over a month.”
Russo didn’t share any details on the Extraction 2 plot, expected filming locations, or even what he’s planning to do with Hemsworth‘s character after that cliffhanger ending. Looks like we’ll just have to keep waiting for more details on Extraction 2 as this project develops.
Extraction is now available to stream on Netflix.
