A follow-up to Netflix Originals action film ‘Extraction’ is in the works, screenwriter Joe Russo has revealed.
The 48-year-old filmmaker served as both a screenwriter and producer on the Netflix Original action flick and following the movie’s huge success, being streamed by over 90 million viewers, Russo has confirmed he is going to penning a follow-up.
It is hoped that Chris Hemsworth will reprise his role as mercenary Tyler Rake and that Sam Hargrave – who made his reputation as a stunt coordinator on several Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbusters – will return as director.
”The deal is closed for me to write ‘Extraction 2’, and we are in the formative stages of what the story can be.”
Joe – whose brother Anthony Russo also served as a producer – refused to confirm if the new project would be a prequel or sequel after the ambiguous ending to the first film.
