Chiwetel Ejiofor (“Doctor Strange”), Harry Melling (“The Ballad Of Buster Scruggs”) and Veronica Ngo (“Bright”) have all joined the cast of Gina Prince-Bythewood’s action-fantasy feature “The Old Guard” at Netflix and Skydance.
Based on Greg Rucka’s graphic novel series, the story follows a small covert group of immortal mercenaries who must fight to keep their team together when they discover the existence of a new immortal and their extraordinary abilities are exposed.
The trio joins the already impressive cast of Charlize Theron, KiKi Layne (“If Beale Street Could Talk”), Marwan Kenzari (“Aladdin”), Matthias Schoenaerts (“The Mustang”) and Luca Marinelli (“Trust”).
Rucka and Prince-Bythewood adapted the script and the project is now shooting at the UK’s Pinewood Studios. Theron, David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Marc Evans, Don Granger, Beth Kono and AJ Dix are producing.
