‘Extraction’ was an instant hit when it debuted on Netflix last year, and it didn't take long for Netflix to announce a sequel. So far, we've only heard bits and pieces about the film's progress, but we now have a confirmed production start date.
‘Extraction 2’ will start production next month on September 6 (Update 10/04 - Production is now set to begin on October 25) in Los Angeles, California. The current plan is to shoot the entire movie in the same Hollywood studio without complicating things due to COVID. However, few other websites have also reported that it can also shoot in Sydney, Australia.
Chris Hemsworth is set to return as fearless mercenary Tyler Rake in the 2nd movie, but unlike its predecessor, the film will not be set in the subcontinent. There is no information about the plot for this film yet, there is still a mystery whether it will be a prequel story for Tyler Rake or a sequel story beginning at the same point where Extraction ended. At the end of Extraction, Tyler appears to be dead, but a scene in the end credits suggests that he may have survived.
Joe Russo is returning with the script for Extraction 2 along with director Sam Hargrave. Russo has finished writing the screenplay, and Hargrave has previously indicated that he pitched some plot ideas to Joe Russo. As with the first film, we can expect a lot of action and fun in this one. Hargrave has also teased about building an entire film universe based on the Extraction, but he has not specified how or when this will happen.
Extraction (2020) had a dynamic cast that includes Chris Hemsworth, Rudhraksh Jaiswal, Randeep Hooda, Pankaj Tripathi, Golshifteh Farahani, Neha Mahajan, and Rob Collins. The film was set in Bangladesh and follows black market mercenary Tyler Rake on a rescue operation to bring back a young boy caught in a drug war between notorious drug lords. Kidnappers have trapped him within one of the world's most impregnable cities, and his recovery requires Tyler Rake's exceptional expertise, but he is a shattered man with nothing to lose, holding a death wish that makes an already lethal mission nearly impossible.
We can expect ‘Extraction 2’ to arrive on Netflix by April 2022, the same month as Extraction, which arrived in April 2020. Extraction was a big hit on Netflix with over 90 million households tuning in to watch the movie in its first 28 days of arrival.
Russo brothers are also directing the action thriller "The Gray Man" for Netflix, which is also the biggest investment the streamer has ever made into a single movie.“The Gray Man” recently wrapped filming, and it stars Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Dhanush, Jessica Henwick, Regé-Jean Page, and Billy Bob Thornton.
