With production well underway on the anticipated sequel Extraction 2, it appears that Tyler Rake will fight his next mission in a chillier climate. The star took to Instagram to share the image of himself as Rake and it’s definitely snowing as you can see below. Well it is the holiday season so maybe this one takes place during the festive time of year that everyone loves. After all, we need a new Christmas action movie.
Hemsworth also shared a BTS image as well with Director Sam Hargrave who returns to helm the follow up which promises to outdo the original in the action set piece department. That’s going to be a pretty big task seeing what the first film delivered in the high-octane running time.
For those of you not in the know, Extraction was one of the most watched movies on Netflix last year which probably was due to the fact that it came out right when COVID-19 started running rampant but hey we’ll take what we can get. The first film was helmed by Hargrave who is best known for doubling Chris Evans in the MCU. It was his directorial debut and a great one at that which proves my point that the best action directors are the ones who literally sweated and bled for the genre.
A follow up has been teased by the Russo Brothers for some time now and there’s been even talk of expanding the universe set forth in the movie. There’s been mention of prequels as well to go along with follow ups so we’ll see what happens in that regard.
To wet our appetites even more, Netflix released a special teaser during a fan event a while back which featured footage of Rake’s resurrection which you can see below!
In the original:
The freshman film also starred Rudhraksh Jaiswal, Manoj Bajpayee, Randeep Hooda, Pankaj Tripathi, Derek Luke, Marc Donato, and David Harbour. Joe Russo wrote the screenplay and also penned the second.
Hemsworth is the only cast member mentioned at the moment but I’m sure we’ll get more announcements on who’s in this one.
Extraction 2 is expected to hit Netflix sometime next year. Keep it locked and loaded right here for more details to come as filming is well underway!
