Charlize Theron Fronts New Fantasy-Action Film ‘The Old Guard’

Charlize Theron joins the Netflix fold with the upcoming The Old Guard, a new fantasy-action film based on the graphic novel of the same name.

Theron plays the leader of a group of immortal mercenaries whose powers are exposed, forcing them to fight to keep their identity a secret as a new member is discovered.

The Old Guard could potentially spawn a new franchise of films should it be popular on Netflix, and it seems to have all the hallmarks of a series in the making.

The film is action-packed and features a different type of superhero team, all of whom have super-healing powers, allowing them to live for centuries.

Gina Prince-Bythewood’s film doesn’t shy away from the violence either, which gives it that bit of extra edge in what is a saturated marketplace.

Theron’s star-power should draw a crowd and she’s joined by a talented supporting cast that includes Chiwetel Ejiofor, Harry Melling, and Matthias Schoenaerts.

The Old Guard graphic novel was published by Image Comics and written by Eisner-winning writer Greg Rucka and penciled by Leandro Fernandez.

The film hits Netflix on 10 July 2020.
