At the end of November, Joe Russo confirmed that the shooting of the second part of the action movie “Operation Rescue” will start within the next year. Now the screenwriter has stated that it will not end in one sequel – together with his brother (Anthony), he plans to create a franchise.
I’m not going to reveal all the plans yet, because it is more interesting to surprise people. However, I can say the following: we are working on creating a universe of films in which we can potentially explore a number of characters from the first “Operation” and some new ones, and also show their relationship.
Thus, if you are interested in the character of David Harbor, you will probably see him again in the future.
Russo also confirmed that Chris Hemsworth will return to the role of Tyler Rake in the sequel. Now the team is looking for a window in its busy schedule. The writer expects filming for the second film to begin in the fall of 2021, which implies that the premiere should not be expected until late 2022.
The first “Operation” was watched by 99 million households, thereby knocking the picture out of the first place among the most watched original Netflix films in recent years.
