Rescue (Extraction) was released a few days ago on Netflix, but it is already a great success. Directed by Sam Hargrave, with screenplay by Joe Russo and star Chris Hemsworth in the lead role, the plot has already won over so many viewers that not even a week after its premiere, there is talk of a possible sequel.
In a recent interview with Collider, the director of the feature commented on his ambitions for a long-awaited sequel to the film, to which he reveals that he would like it to be a pre-sequence focused on the character of Chris Hemsworth, an actor known primarily for his role as Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Check out his full speech:
“It wasn’t discussed on the set, but this idea of a sequel was mentioned (because I think Netflix was enjoying the diaries, things were coming together and people were like ‘oh, this can happen’, you know, these things that everyone talks about. Is it a franchise? Are they all these things? Who knows until the movie comes out and the audience responds. They will be the ones to decide. But it was commented. As soon as Joe appeared, an interesting point was that, most of the time , you get a sequence. You rarely go back in time in prequels. […] You have a feeling that Chris and Harbor have great chemistry […] so we thought it was a very interesting way – if you went back in time – that you could play with the prequel to a story like that. “
This was not the first time that a Rescue sequence was commented to the public: according to Forbes magazine, a sequel is already being planned, but nothing has been defined so far and Netflix continues without disclosing details about the possible prequel.
Synopsis: The fearless mercenary Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth) faces his most dangerous mission when trying to rescue the kidnapped son of an international crime boss. Directed by Sam Hargrave, Rescue is an action film produced by Joe and Anthony Russo, the visionary directors of Avengers: Ultimatum.
