Chris Hemsworth leads Netflix's Extraction cast, but he's certainly not the only big-name actor involved. Extraction marks the directorial debut of Sam Hagrave, and it's produced by Joe and Anthony Russo's production company AGBO. It's also based on the Ciudad comic by Ande Parks, Fernando Leon Gonzalez, Eric Skillman, and the Russos.
Extraction centers on a black-market mercenary, Tyler Rake, who is hired by a imprisoned global crime lord to rescue his kidnapped son. With nothing left to lose, he takes on the job and is quickly plunged into the messy underworld of weapons dealers and drug traffickers. Production for Extraction began in 2018, with filming taking place in several locations, like Ahmedabad and Mumbai, India; Ban Pong, Thailand; and plate shots in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
Originally titled Dhaka, the movie's name was later changed to Out of the Fire until it was given its final title - Extraction - just two months before release. Hemsworth leads a small cast of characters in Extraction, and here's everyone else in the movie including who they play and where you might have seen them before.
