Netflix is prepping a sequel to its hit action flick, Extraction, which sees Chris Hemsworth starring as black-market mercenary Tyler Rake. Joe Russo, who wrote the screenplay for the movie and produced it alongside his brother Anthony, made the deal to write the second installment. The Russo Brothers are hopeful that Hemsworth will reprise his role as the death-dealing contractor, with stuntman-turned-director Sam Hargrave equally returning to direct.

As of now, it’s unclear as to whether the film will take place before or after the first installment, which will be confirmed during the scriptwriting process. “We’re not committing yet to whether that story goes forward, or backward in time,” Joe Russo told Deadline. “We left a big loose ending that leaves question marks for the audience.” The film’s final moments left many fans wondering whether or not Hemsworth’s character survived his injuries, however, Russo mentions that the non-conclusive ending leaves open the possibility that he made it out alive.


Extraction is currently projected to be the streaming giant’s largest-ever film premiere, “with a projected 90 million households getting in on the action in the first 4 weeks,” surpassing the previously released Spenser Confidential starring Mark Wahlberg (85 million) and the Ryan Reynolds-starring and Michael Bay-directed action flick 6 Underground (83 million).
