SILVER AND BLACK Director Gina Prince-Bythewood To Helm THE OLD GUARD Adaptation For Skydance

With Sony's Silver and Black movie stalled, director Gina Prince-Bythewood is set to tackle a big-screen adaptation of Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandez's comic series, The Old Guard. More past the jump...

Though Sony's planned Silver and Black movie is apparently still on the studio's agenda, with the Spidey spinoff stuck in development, director Gina Prince-Bythewood (Cloak and Dagger, The Secret Life of Bees) has lined up another project.

According to THR (confirming an earlier report from Omega Underground), she'll helm a big-screen adaptation of Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandez's Image comic series The Old Guard for Skydance.

For those unfamiliar with the story, here's a synopsis:


"The Old Guard focuses on a small group of soldiers, led by a woman named Andy, who are inexplicably immortal and have been working as mercenaries through the ages. The novelty of not dying long gone, 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."
