Chris Hemsworth joins Sam Hargrave in Chilly Prague to begin filming of Extraction 2
Tyler Rake lives. The sequel to the 2020 Netflix hit, Extraction is finally in production. Russo Brothers, who produce the film under their AGBO Films banner, shared a moment from the film’s sets in Prague, where actor Chris Hemsworth and director Sam Hargrave shared a frosty moment on a train, calling for help. fan enthusiasm for Tyler coming out of his ordeal in the previous film.
Speaking about how different his experience will be, Hemsworth pointed to the freezing cold in Prague, saying:
Two things are very different from the last film, one – very very cold …
Extraction took place in India and Dhaka, a place with relatively warmer weather. So the sequel puts Hemsworth in an entirely different setting. While the first film was a top action thriller that impressed with incredible fight sequences and footage shot continuously for seemingly long takes. With Extraction 2, Hargrave, who is a master stunt coordinator and an expert in designing action sequences, things can get much more brutal in this extremely cold weather in Prague. Production shifted from Australia to Prague after the former country imposed restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, causing a scheduling conflict.
Hemsworth returned to filming after completing production on Thor: Love and Thunder. The actor is said to have leaned into his physique after literally blowing himself up like a Norse god for the next MCU entry.
Hemsworth also didn’t insist on pointing out the obvious detail that will interest people about the sequel …
… Two – I’m alive. How? ‘Or’ What? You will have to find out. Watch the movie. Stay tuned.
Earlier, Sam Hargrave also shared a similar video amid a snowfall in Prague, announcing the start of filming for the sequel.
In Extraction, Hemsworth played Tyler Rake, a ruthless hired mercenary who is manipulated to save Ovi Mahajan, the son of an Indian drug lord from his rival in Dhaka. In a mission he considered a piece of cake, Ovi’s bodyguard Saju intervenes to avoid paying the mercenary’s fees and everything turns into a bloodbath.
After going through a bloody ordeal against gangsters and hired militiamen, Tyler successfully rescues Ovi, but not before (* spoiler alert *) sacrifice his own life. The end of the movie saw Rake get shot and fall from the bridge into the river. The film ended with Ovi coming out of a swimming pool and looking at a blurry figure, who looked like Rake.
This particular scene caused fans to speculate on Raje’s survival, which was finally confirmed earlier this year with a teaser backed by the hashtag #RakeLives; it was posted on the Netflix YouTube channel. How that happens would be a major plot point for the sequel.
We don’t know if Extraction 2 will be a brand new story on another mission that Rake will be hired for or will be a continuation of the previous one. However, the teaser featured a voiceover from Rudhraksh Jaiswal, who played Ovi in the first film. That’s a plausible clue to Ovi’s return for the sequel, this time around, possibly in a leading and action role; but nothing could be said about it with confirmation.
Extraction 2 is eagerly awaiting a release in April 2023. The sequel is once again being written by Joe Russo and will see Sam Hargrave return to directing. Just like its predecessor, which became the number one Netflix movie when it was released, Extraction 2 will also be streaming directly to Netflix.
