Charlize Theron and Netflix teamed up recently to film the upcoming action-fantasy flick, The Old Guard.
The Oscar winner stars as Andromache of Scythia, the leader of a small group of immortal soldiers.
Based on Greg Rucka and artist Leandro Fernandez’s comic book of the same name, The Old Guard tells of a small group of soldiers, led by a woman named Andromache of Scythia or Andy, who are inexplicably immortal and have been working as mercenaries through the ages.
But in the 21st century, the novelty of not dying is long gone as 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.
Did you get all that? I’m not sure I did, but I suppose it sounds interesting enough. Not a huge action-fantasy fan, but I feel the need to watch every film Theron stars in. She brings it every single time.
The movie is set to premiere on Netflix on July 10, which means a trailer should be coming soon.
