EXTRACTION 2 Starring Chris Hemsworth Expected To Begin Shooting Next Year According To Joe Russo

Extraction has not only proved to be one of Netflix's most popular original films, but also one of the best. Now, writer/producer Joe Russo has shared an update on when the sequel is set to begin shooting.

We haven't exactly seen a lot of movies in theaters during 2020, but streaming services have definitely gone some way towards making up for that. Netflix, for example, has had a pretty good year, with Extraction a definite highlight. Directed by Marvel Cinematic Universe stunt co-ordinator, Sam Hargrave, and written by Joe Russo, it didn't take long until a sequel was officially announced. 

During a recent interview with ComicBook.com, Joe shared an update on the follow-up (which will see Chris Hemsworth reprise the role of Tyler Rake), and there's some good news. 

"Yeah we're still working on two," the Avengers: Endgame director confirmed. "We're in the script phase right now but we're hoping to shoot that sometime next year. And then you know, say I'm super excited, Hemsworth's super excited, Netflix is excited so it's really just a function of getting the script done."

It's not surprising that Netflix is keen to get cameras rolling as soon as possible because Extraction is a franchise with serious potential, and there's a lot of desire for a sequel. Having a legit Hollywood A-Lister like Hemsworth as a regular on the streaming service will also be beneficial, and we'll no doubt begin to get some casting news for this highly anticipated follow-up in the New Year.
