After the success of “Tyler Rake” released on Netflix in April 2020, an intense action-thriller produced by the Russo brothers and carried by star Chris Hemsworth, the launch of a sequel was a no-brainer. Still directed by Sam Hargrave, it is currently in production and Chris Hemsworth has unveiled mouth-watering footage from the shoot. A funny moment, and which perhaps gives some elements to the plot.
Following Tyler Rake looks nasty
The mercenary Tyler Rake played by Chris Hemsworth is making a name for himself, and Netflix in its quest for original and profitable franchises can already be proud to have at least this one.
With the Russo brothers in production, who have fun outside the MCU and oversee realistic and muscular productions – we also think of the very good Mosul -, and former stunt coordinator Sam Hargrave directing, Tyler Rake surprised 2020 with its high-quality intensity, fights, and chases.
Its sequel, Tyler Rake 2announces of the same caliber with the promise of doing even more. Chris Hemsworth found there a role and a trellis to his measure, and in the near future, his Tyler Rake will perhaps be compared to John Wick or Jason Bourne for his qualities as an action hero.
We are not there yet, since Tyler Rake 2 is still filming, and we still know very little about it. To make his audience wait as if to tease the show that the team is preparing, the Australian actor unveiled a short sequence, where he comments off-camera a riot scene. It’s funny, it’s messy, and it makes you want to.
Chris Hemsworth: “Are they supposed to be on fire?”
In about fifteen seconds broadcast on Instagram, we see Chris Hemsworth attend the filming of a sequence and comment on it with humor.
We hear him say this:
Just another quiet day on the set of Extraction 2 (the title in VO, editor’s note). Calm, serene. Relaxing. Uh are they supposed to be on fire?”
While the scene in question seems to be a riot in a prison yard – we can see fences and spotlights typical of this kind of place – Chris Hemsworth quips, commenting on the opposite of the tension under his eyes, declaring that everything is calm and relaxing, before worrying about the joke of extras who are on fire.
A track for the scenario of Tyler Rake 2?
We don’t know yet what the plot will be. Tyler Rake 2but certain elements allow us to confirm when it will take place and to make at least one hypothesis. In an interview given to us in April 2020 by the Russo brothers, we learned that another film was in the plans. Without knowing if it would take place before or after the action of the first, as the Russo brothers declared in May 2020 at Deadline:
We are not yet decided if the story will take place after the first film, or will be set in the past.
Two options which at the time were valid, since the end of Tyler Rake could leave everything to imagine. But if we go through the cast, already partly known, of this second opus today, we note that David Harbor does not appear there. Since his character dies in the 2020 film, it would have been a shame to make a prequel without him, which further confirms the idea of a classic sequel, which would take on the continuity of the conclusion of Tyler Rake, as the already unveiled teaser meant.
And since we know that there will be at least one scene in a prison, we can perhaps hypothesize that Tyler Rake, therefore, came out alive from the river where he fell unconscious, was arrested, and then perhaps to be detained in a prison located in a remote place, from which he will escape. But that’s just a guess…
