Marwan Kenzari, currently starring as Jafar in Disney’s live-action “Aladdin,” is joining Skydance and Netflix’s film adaptation of the Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandez comic “The Old Guard”.
The story tells of a small group of soldiers, led by a woman named Andy (Charlize Theron), 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.
Kenzari will play a man who was once a Moor warrior. Kiki Layne also stars.
Gina Prince-Bythewood is directing the action feature which is being produced by David Ellison, Marc Evans, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, Kono and AJ DIx.
