The sequel doesn’t yet have a release date, but the end of the featurette announces that the film will arrive in 2023.
Original director Sam Hargrave is also back on board for ‘Extraction 2’, looking to outdo himself after delivering a impressive 11 minute uninterrupted take in the first movie.
The featurette calls the take “the first” and teases an even bigger shot in the sequel
“For ‘Extraction 1,’ we had a major action sequence that felt like one continuous shot – we call it an ‘oner,'” Hargrave said in the clip. “For ‘Extraction 2’, we’re going to take that even further with a more complex and extreme sequence than before.”
“We have a real helicopter landing on top of moving trains,” Hargrave added.
“Extraction” remains one of the most-watched and successful films in Netflix history. The streamer revealed that the Hemsworth movie at the top of a list of its most popular original films, seen by 99 million households in its first four weeks and beating other popular hits like “Bird Box” and “Spenser Confidential”.
“Avengers” director Joe Russo is writing the “Extraction” sequel, and Joe and Anthony Russo are producing the film on behalf of their AGBO banner.
