THE OLD GUARD - Charlize Theron as ”Andy.

Charlize Theron Says “The Old Guard” Sequel Will Film Next Year

One of the best movies of 2020 is getting a sequel. Charlize Theron has told Variety that the script for The Old Guard is finished, and she’ll be returning as Andy, one of the immortal covert operatives who have been running dangerous missions for centuries. The original film was a thrilling action-adventure epic, deftly directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, and featuring a stellar cast. Joining Theron were rising star KiKi Layne, playing a highly trained Marine who comes into contact with Andy and finds out that she, too, has incredible healing abilities, and Marwan Kenzari and Luca Marinelli, who played Joe and Nicky respectfully, a loving couple who just happen to be able to take a bullet to the gut and keep fighting.

Variety reports that The Old Guard 2 is expected to start filming in the first quarter of 2022.
