Even though there is two months to go until the film’s release, STXFilms is already moving ahead with a sequel to Peter Berg’s Mile 22. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Umair Aleem, a Black List writer who penned Extraction and the upcoming Netflix film Kate, has been tapped to write the sequel.
Though it is soon to begin thinking about a sequel, STXFilms have described Mile 22 as a multi-platform franchise they wish to build upon, spanning film, television and even VR gaming.
In a visceral modern thriller from the director of Lone Survivor, Mark Wahlberg stars as James Silva, an operative of the CIA’s most highly-prized and least-understood unit. Aided by a top-secret tactical command team, Silva must retrieve and transport an asset who holds life-threatening information to Mile 22 for extraction before the enemy closes in.
