It seems like its been years since Extraction released on Netlfix but the popular movie premiered on the OTT platform in April this year. Soon after its release, Joe Russo’s Extraction became Netflix’s most-watched original movie ever and naturally, a sequel was also given the green light. Russo is known best for directing the third and fourth Avengers movies alongside his brother, Anthony.
“I thought I’d be starstruck, and ask him questions about Avengers and Thanos, but nothing like that happened because he is so cool and calm. This vibe he has is great — it feels like you’re meeting a friend and not a co-actor,” actor Priyanshu Painyuli who stars in the film, told MW about co-star Chris Hemsworth.
Now, filmmaker Sam Hargrave has stated that an entire Extraction Universe is being fleshed out.
“That’s kind of everyone’s little caveat right now, but we’re moving forward on it as if we’re shooting in the fall. Joe is still finalizing the script. We’re all excited to read it. I’ve read different iterations, but I’m excited to read what he turns in. We’re all looking forward to getting back in the saddle and hopefully bringing another action-packed adventure in the Extraction universe,” he told Collider.
“Truthfully, I always walk around my house or walk around town looking for ways to do something fun or different with action. I kind of think as if there’s a camera behind my eyes all the time like, ‘What would be an interesting way to capture this?’, ‘Oh, that’d be cool.’ So I’m always cataloguing and trying to get different, fun ways to capture action and different action set pieces that would be great. Joe and I talked a lot about that, pitched some ideas, bounced them around, and I’m just excited for the challenge,” he added.
Hargrave also shared that the Russo brothers are “building on (the Marvel) model in the Extraction universe.”
