As the Chris Hemsworth starrer "Extraction" continues on pace to become Netflix's most-watched feature film ever, Joe Russo of "Avengers: Endgame" and "Avengers: Infinity War" fame has closed a deal to write another installment of the action film, according to online news site, Deadline.
AGBO, the company run by Russo and his brother Anthony, are putting the pieces together and are optimistic that Sam Hargrave will return as director, and that Chris Hemsworth will reprise his role as mercenary Tyler Rake, though those deals won't be made by Netflix until the script is ready.
"The deal is closed for me to write Extraction 2, and we are in the formative stages of what the story can be," Russo told Deadline.
"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," Russo said.
Russo also said he expects Extraction director Sam Hargrave (a longtime collaborator with the Russos) to be back at the helm.
As for Hemsworth, there is no deal at this point. Russo said the focus will be to work out the story and then write the script and show it to him before that happens.
Hemsworth worked with Joe and Anthony Russo, and Hargrave, on Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
