Netflix’s Chris Hemsworth-Led Extraction 2 Wraps Production in Prague

Director Sam Hargrave took to Instagram to announce that principal photography on Netflix’s forthcoming Chris Hemsworth-led action sequel Extraction 2 has finally been completed, after more than four months of filming in Prague. The sequel was originally planned to film in Australia, but due to the pandemic, Netflix decided to move its production to the Czech Republic.

Further details about the sequel’s plot and new characters are still being kept under wraps, with only Hemsworth as its lone confirmed cast member. There is also currently no release date attached to the project yet.

Extraction 2 is directed by Sam Hargrave from a screenplay written by returning scribe Joe Russo. Just like the 2020 film, it is also being produced by Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo through their AGBO banner along with Hemsworth.

It will feature the return of Chris Hemsworth as skilled black-ops mercenary Tyler Rake, who was last seen by viewers with a gunshot wound to his neck. It remains to be seen how the sequel will address his survival from his near-fatal injury.

The original film took place in an underworld of weapons dealers and traffickers and followed a young boy who becomes the pawn in a war between notorious drug lords. It was positively received, with critics praising its action sequences. During its first month of release, it was Netflix’s most-watched film as it garnered 90 million households.

Extraction also starred David Harbour (Stranger Things, Black Widow), Derek Luke (13 Reasons Why), Fay Masterson (Vice), Golshifteh Farahani (Paterson), and newcomer Rudhraksh Jaiswal.
