After the smash many records on Netflix, Extraction returned with the second part. Joe Russo- producer and writer of Extraction, gives hints about the sequel of Netflix’s original film.
The first installment stream on April 2, 2020, on Netflix. The film emerges a regular spot on Netflix’s Top 10 most popular list throughout the month.
It’s a most-watched feature film of Netflix, and I think that’s why the team comes up with the second installment. The film ends also gives a full chance to make the sequel.
As per sources, Extraction writer Joe Russo closed a deal to writer another part of this action film.
But Joe’s brother Anthony is optimistic that Sam Hargrave returns as director, and Chris Hemsworth will return as mercenary Tyler Rake. However, those deals will not be done by Netflix.
As Russo explained to Collider,
“Yeah, they said they were very happy with the film and excited about it. And they knew there was potential there for another story. And everyone was blown away by Sam’s execution on the film, so I think the numbers just reaffirmed what we all felt about the movie. And now we’re just going to go explore what potential story there could be moving forward with this character. With Anthony and I, everything we do is story-based, we got to find the right story to tell to know that, ‘Yeah, we’re going to go make the film.’”
As I said, it sounds like producers are prepped to bring back director Sam Hargrave and Hemsworth as Tyler Rake.
Also, Russo explained about the sequel,
“Well I think what was compelling about our approach to this one — and has been informed by our time spent working on Marvel films and traveling the world — is hopefully gaining a deeper understanding of international markets and telling stories that explore them in the films [and] that are less ‘U.S.A.’ in the story. I think that that was very successful in this film and something that we would continue to do on a future movie in this franchise … Certainly, I’m going through that in my mind right now, what makes sense. There’s critical aspects of [Extraction] that you would want to carry over as part of the main tenets of a franchise. And the location is a big part of that … What I like is that there’s a fresh approach just in terms of the canvases that are pretty wide open on it.”
Well, we have to wait for Extraction part 2. Watch Extraction on Netflix.
