In an interview with Collider, director Sam Hargrave opened up about the long-awaited ‘Rescue 2’ sequel, in addition to revealing what he hopes for the future of the franchise.
“I believe that Joe [Russo] and Anthony [Russo] are brilliant at building a universe like Marvel, where many of these films are tied to their characters and their travels. They’re bringing this format into the ‘Resgate’ franchise and there are plenty of opportunities to follow these characters that viewers love. Looks like they want to see more. “
He adds: “I want to be as involved as possible, but I don’t want to be greedy. There are several other filmmakers with unique visions that would bring something new to the franchise. I hope I can do the second movie with the same crew and really establish the franchise. But I would also like to see other young directors able to take this saga to the next level.
Previously, Hargrave had confirmed that filming for the sequel is set to begin in the fall (between September and December).
Additionally, the filmmaker has stated that Joe Russo (‘Avengers: Endgame’ co-director) is already finalizing the script.
“We are still cautious because of the pandemic, the current scenario is as follows. But we are already well advanced, Joe Russo is already finishing the script and we plan to record in the fall.
Hargrave, who was also Chris Evans’ stunt double in the ‘Captain America’ movies, has revealed that there are different versions of the script and still decides which one will be last.
“I’ve read different versions of the script before and we are deciding what details are most appropriate for the sequence. I’m very happy to hear what Joe’s ultimate idea will be, but I can guarantee you the new adventure will expand the universe we’ve created with a lot more action. “
As of yet, there are no official details on the sequel’s plot.
Considering the end of the original film, everything indicates that the character of Hemsworth may have survived the difficult journey back to a new mission … or maybe the plot is a pre-sequence.
