Netflix's adaptation of Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandez's comic series The Old Guard proved to be one of the streamer's most popular original movies when it debuted back in 2020, and the planned sequel has now added a couple of major names to its cast.
THR reports that Uma Thurman (Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction) and Henry Golding (Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins) have signed on in supporting roles (no details on their characters were provided). Charlize Theron is set to return as Andromache of Scythia, along with KiKi Layne, Matthias Schoenaerts, Marwan Kenzari, Luca Marinelli, Veronica Ngo and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
The first film focused on a group of immortal warriors led by Theron's Andy, who do their best to make the world a safer place as mercenaries for hire. No plot details for the sequel have been released, but the ending of the original certainly left the story open to continue.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker second unit director Victoria Mahoney will helm the project, taking over from Gina Prince-Bythewood who was forced to bow-out due to a scheduling conflict.
