‘The Old Guard’: Charlize Theron and Kiki Layne Cast in Netflix’s Comic Book Adaptation!!!

After gaining director Gina Prince-Bythewood last summer, Netflix has announced that Charlize Theron (Mad Max: Fury Road) and KikiLayne (If Beale Street Could Talk) have joined the comic book adaptation The Old Guard in the film’s lead roles.

An adaptation of Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandez’s Image Comics series, The Old Guard revolves around “a small group of soldiers, led by a woman named Andy, who are inexplicably immortal and have been working as mercenaries through the ages. The novelty of not dying long gone, the group gets a jolt in their bones when they discover the existence of a new immortal, a black woman serving in the Marines, at the same time as a nefarious organization captures their undying actions on camera.”

Greg Rucka is making his feature screenplay debut by adapting his comic series himself, while David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger of Skydance Productions are producing The Old Guard.
