Extraction Sequel In The Works

Given that – according to the streaming service's notoriously opaque figures – Extraction has been a bigger hit for Netflix than some of the face-punches Chris Hemsworth's Tyler Rake delivers to baddies, it's not a shock to learn that the pieces are falling into place for a sequel, with news that producer/co-writer Joe Russo has made a deal to crank out another script.

The first film, of course, adapted Andre Parks and Fernando Leon Gonzalez' graphic novel Ciudad, and there are zero details about what angle the new movie would take besides a hoped-for return engagement with Hemsworth. No other deals are in place, but the Russos (Joe produced the film with brother Anthony via their AGBO company) are aiming to bring Hemsworth back and have debut director (and stunt legend) Sam Hargrave return.

"The deal is closed for me to write Extraction 2, and we are in the formative stages of what the story can be,” Joe Russo tells Deadline. "We’re not committing yet to whether that story goes forward, or backward in time. We left a big loose ending that leaves question marks for the audience." Cue the wags joking, "there was a story?"
