Old Guard 2 Release Date Netflix

Last summer, Netflix released the action movie starring Charlize Theron where she plays the leader of a group of immortals. This story was a success among subscribers as it reached more than 78 million views. That is why they have already approved The old guard 2 that will continue the interesting story.

For now there are not many details, but they say that all the main stars of the first will return to The Old Guard 2. In addition, Gina Prince-Bythewood will repeat as the director.

Plot of “The Old Guard”

The Old Guard explores the stories of immortal warriors that are several centuries old. They have been living among the people and working as mercenaries. Since their time on earth, they have taken on various missions to help humanity. The main characters in the movie have special healing abilities, making it impossible for anyone to kill them. This group of immortals lives by a code that they must not work for anyone twice. However, things take an ugly turn for the group when they break their code and take a job from a former CIA agent for the second time. The mission is to rescue a group of girls who have been kidnapped.

To the surprise of the group, the mission turns out to be a trap by the CIA operative. They are ambushed and killed by a group of an advance task force sent out by the operative. However, his healing abilities kick in and he instantly recovers and kills the attackers. On the other hand, a US Marine is killed in action, but is eventually brought back to life without a scratch. The immortal group discovers her existence and takes her to her safe house. Then begins the capture of some members of the group by a pharmaceutical executive who wants to study her secret healing.

What will the film be about?

Charlize Theron will reprise as Andy in The Old Guard 2, along with original cast members KiKi Layne, Matthias Schoenaerts, Marwan Kenzari, Luca Marinelli, Veronica Ngô and Chiwetel Ejiofor. But in addition, there will be great additions to the sequel like Uma Thurman and Henry Golding.

The story is based on the comic by Greg Rucka and illustrator Leandro Fernandez, which focuses on a group of mercenaries, who are virtually immortal and have been able to live and operate for generations. Although it is clear that everything will change now, since at the end of the first film Charlize Theron’s character had lost her powers. But in addition, Booker (Matthias Schoenaerts) is expelled from the group for selling them to his enemy and he meets Gwynh (Ngô), an old colleague of the group, who is believed to be dead. It’s unclear for now if the two Immortals will strike back at their old team or team up to take on a bigger threat.

When was The Old Guard 2 greenlit on Netflix?

We first reported that Netflix was looking at a sequel in January 2021, though confirmation wouldn’t officially come until August of this year (although Theron officially confirmed the movie back in June).

As mentioned, The Old Guard topped the Netflix charts in 2020 and was originally envisioned as a trilogy with the director of the first film saying:

Where is The Old Guard 2 produced? ?

The aforementioned Variety article stated that “the cameras will be operational in the first quarter of 2022”, but that did not happen.

We’ve heard that the film has been in pre-production for much of 2022 and that cameras are scheduled to start in June 2022.
