Tyler Rake lives! At today’s Netflix TUDUM Global Fan Event, Chris Hemsworth announced he will reprise his role in Extraction 2, which will soon debut on the streamer. Along with news of Hemsworth’s return for the upcoming sequel, the streamer released a teaser for the action-packed film.
In May 2020, Netflix announced a Extraction the sequel was in the works with original writer Joe Russo attached to write the new script and Sam Hargrave as director. AGBO, the company run by Russo and his brother Anthony, was “optimistic” that Hemsworth would reprise his role as mercenary, Tyler. And with today’s TUDUM event, Hemsworth has officially joined the Extraction Team.
“The agreement is made for me to write Extraction 2, and we are in the stages of forming what history can be, ”said Russo Deadline at the time. “We do not yet commit to whether this story is moving forward or backward in time. We left a big loose ending that leaves question marks for the audience.
The end of the first install left Tyler Rake’s future pretty up in the air. His character takes a pretty nasty shot in the neck in the film’s final scenes, suggesting he’s screwed. But the latest shot reveals that Tyler may be alive: as Ovi (Rudhraksh Jaiswal) swims in a pool, he takes in some air. In the distance, we only see the pale silhouette of a figure sitting by the pool. Could it be Tyler, risen from the dead? Yes!
“There was always a simple motivation in the story, a ballet-like execution of action where you take a damaged character who has made a glaring mistake in the past and has a chance at redemption which could be fatal,” Russo said. . “What was essential was that we needed a muscular action director like Sam to be the main creative force in the execution of the action.”
