About the film’s success and Netflix, Joe Russo had said in May, “It’s interesting, they don’t do a lot of projecting. They’re very guarded with their information, which is a good thing because you don’t set expectations up and then not hit them. So I’m happy with that as a filmmaker there’s not a lot of tracking to either get your hopes up or dash your hopes. It just performs and then you find out how it’s performing.”

A follow-up to the action film has already been confirmed, with Joe returning to write the script, and star Chris Hemsworth and director Sam Hargrave expected to return. Extraction also features Indian actors Pankaj Tripathi and Priyanshu Painyuli, in addition to David Harbour and Golshifteh Farahani.
