Yes! A sequel to Extraction was confirmed by Deadline on May 4. Negotiations are still ongoing, including the return of director Sam Hargrave and Hemsworth in the lead role. Deadline reported that such 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,” Joe 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.”
WHAT STORY WILL EXTRACTION 2 EXPLORE?
It is unknown at the moment what story Extraction 2 will tell.
The film could be a continuation of Tyler Rake’s guardianship over Ovi (played by Indian teen actor Rudhraksh Jaiswal), or perhaps Tyler is hired for a new job to extract a new subject in a new location, which would be the easy recipe for an evergreen film franchise.
Some speculate that Tyler Rake actually died, despite the ambiguity of the ending. In fact, Rake’s death was the original, intended ending of Extraction from its own director, Sam Hargrave.
“We had a version of the movie [where he died], and we tested it a lot, and it was not surprising that a lot of people wanted the character to live, and some people wanted him to die,” Hargrave told Collider. “People were torn; it was almost down the middle. We want to appeal to as many people as possible without compromising the integrity of the story. And so, we think a pretty good compromise is to make an ambiguous ending.”
At the end of Extraction, Ovi is safe at home thanks to the actions of Tyler Rake, who was last seen severely injured and falling off a bridge. When Ovi is at his swimming pool, he comes up for air only to see an obscured figure watching him. It’s unknown exactly who that person is except that they’re a tall Caucasian male, which heavily implies that it’s Tyler and that he survived. Yet the movie never confirms who it actually is that’s there.
Hargrave added, “If you feel like you love Tyler Rake, and you love Chris Hemsworth, and you want a sequel, and you’re like ‘There’s no way, you can’t kill him!’ then that’s Tyler Rake standing there looking at you. So we kind of purposefully did not pull focus to the character standing there.”
