AGENCIES, Los Angeles: Chris Hemsworth starrer Extraction is the hottest movie on the block. It could become the most watched movie on Netflix. Talks are on for a sequel as well.
Joe Russo, responsible for writing the script, told Deadline, “The deal is closed for me to write Extraction 2, and we are in the formative stages of what the story can be. We’re not committing yet to whether that story goes forward, or backward in time. We left a big loose ending that leaves question marks for the audience.”
He further added, “We were shocked we couldn’t think of a significant Western action film that had shot there, and the cultural elements just supercharged the storytelling. It was combustible and compelling to set it in an emerging market like that.”
Netflix took to Twitter to proudly announce the success of Extraction. “Tyler Rake is kicking ass. EXTRACTION is well on its way to becoming the biggest-ever film premiere on Netflix — with a projected 90 million households getting in on the action in the first 4 weeks. Thanks to everyone who watched so far!” read its tweet.
