Charlize Theron is an immortal warrior in the first images from The Old Guard movie. An adaptation of the comic book by Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernández, the film follows a group of centuries-old immortal mercenaries as they fight to protect themselves after their secret is discovered.
Theron is joined in the cast by up and comers like KiKi Layne (If Beale Street Could Talk) and Marwen Kenzari (Aladdin), as well as character actors Matthias Schoenaerts (Far From the Madding Crowd) and Luca Marinelli (Trust) as fellow immortal superheroes.
Rounding out the cast is Chiwetel Ejiofor as the CIA historian who uncovers the warriors’ true identities and Harry Melling (aka. Dudley from Harry Potter) as a pharmaceutical executive keen to capture the team and harvest whatever gives them their abilities.
