The Old Guard saw a group of centuries-old mercenaries with the ability to heal themselves fight to protect themselves from a new enemy. Charlize Theron, KiKi Layne, Matthias Schoenaerts, Marwan Kenzari, Luca Marinelli, Harry Melling, Veronica Ngo, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, the movie was well-received by viewers and critics. Netflix greenlit a sequel and, now, the stars are on set currently filming.
Joining the original lineup this time is fan-favourite actor Henry Golding. Not much is known about his role at this time. Also joining the cast in the sequel is Uma Thurman (not included in the photo).
Another change for the sequel comes behind the cameras. Director Gina Prince-Bythewood steps aside for Lovecraft Country’s Victoria Mahoney.
The first movie remains one of the most-watched original movies on Netflix, having 186 million hours viewed in its first 28 days of release. It remains to be seen how much of an imprint this sequel will leave with viewers when it arrives.
