extraction sequel

Hey, remember Extraction? It’s an utterly forgettable Netflix movie that got a lot of hype because it stars handsome man Chris Hemsworth and was produced by the Russo Brothers (Joe Russo also wrote it). Even though the action flick was pretty cut and dry and wrapped up its story rather definitively, it did really well (Netflix claims it’s their most-watched original film ever) and a sequel is being developed. But that’s not all. According to Joe Russo, the plan is to create an entire Extraction cinematic universe.

Kellan Lutz plays his son, who is both deadly and a government analyst, and must try to save his father, and by association millions of people threatened by a terrorist plot.
