Randeep Hooda to make Hollywood debut with Chris Hemsworth-starrer Extraction
Extraction, the directorial debut of Sam Hargrave, will premiere on Netflix on April 24
Actor Randeep Hooda is set to make his Hollywood debut with Extraction. The upcoming film stars Chris Hemsworth and marks the directorial debut of Sam Hargrave. Joe Russo of the Avengers-duo Russo Brothers has penned the story.
Talking about this association, Randeep says, “I get to do a lot of action in the movie. I might be the first Indian male actor to do such an action-packed role in a Hollywood film. It was a great experience working with Hemsworth, Russo brothers and the director, Sam Hargrave.”
Speaking about his character, Randeep shares, “It is described as a wrecking ball in the script. He’s had a run as a military personnel and is now working for Ovi’s (Rudhraksh Jaiswal) father. For the action shots, we rehearsed twice a day for 10 days, since many of my roles so far have been more dramatic. I must say, I’ve never had a director on a wire, hanging next to me, giving me instructions.”
Extraction will stream on Netflix from April 24.
Randeep was recently seen in Love Aaj Kal (2020), and will next be seen as the antagonist in Salman Khan’s upcoming film Radhe.
