Extraction 2 Set To Start Filming In Autumn 2021

Producers have confirmed that the follow-up to hit movie Extraction will start filming in autumn 2021.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, the first one was released in April this year, quickly becoming Netflix's most watched original film.

But now, writer Joe Russo - one half of the celebrated Russo brothers, who directed Marvel's Avengers: Engame, among other enormous hits - has given us an update on where everyone's up to with the next movie in the Extraction franchise.

Speaking on a panel at Brazilian comic convention CCXP, Joe said: "The intention is to start rolling cameras on Extraction 2 sometime next fall. Chris [Hemsworth] is a busy guy so we have to figure out his schedule, but that's the intent at the moment."

He didn't want to give too much away, but when asked about the future of projects being worked on by the brothers' AGBO production company, he said: "I'm still not gonna commit because I think it's more exciting to surprise people.

"But I will say this: we are working at building out a universe of films that could potentially explore some of the other characters from the first movie and some new characters, and see more historical interaction between the characters.

"So if you're interested in David Harbour's character, you just may get to see him in a future Extraction movie."

So it looks like we have more thrilling movie violence heading our way - if you saw the first one, you'll know what I mean.

In fact, the body count reaches triple digits - it's so big that the Russo brothers couldn't keep track of how many they'd killed off.

Joe has revealed the thought process behind the gruesome violence and the extravagant number of kills, which has been described as more like a PS4 game than a movie by one critic.

Speaking to CinemaBlend's podcast, he said: "For us, it's certainly a hyper-adrenalised story. And that's what we liked. We wanted something super aggressive. It's about a corrupt patriarchy and this damaged character.

"And so we really wanted to put him in a pressure cooker, an intense situation and a heightened level of action. Everyone keeps track [of a movie's body count]. I think there was something called The Carnage Document that they would [use to] keep track of everything that happened in the film.

"I can't remember who was keeping track of it, or where it went, but I know it came across in my emails at one point."
