Chris Hemsworth's Netflix action film Extraction is reportedly getting a sequel.

On Friday the streaming service said that the film is set to become the biggest movie premiere with 90 million viewers who tuned into it in its first four weeks of release, reports Business Insider.

According to the Hollywood Reporter filmmaker Joe Russo - who wrote the script - is close to signing a sequel deal.

In an interview with Channel24 director, Sam Hargrave teased a sequel saying: "There are so many possibilities with this world that we have created, it's hard to say. There have been discussions of taking it in a number of different directions, taking it forward or backward, there are so many possibilities."

The movie centres on Tyler Rake (Hemsworth), a fearless black-market mercenary with nothing left to lose when his skills are solicited to rescue the kidnapped son of an imprisoned international crime lord.

On Sunday, Chris shared a video on Instagram, thanking everyone who watched Extraction and for making it the number one film.
