Charlize Theron Is An Ax-Wielding Immortal In New Images From Netflix's THE OLD GUARD

Gina Prince-Bythewood's adaptation of Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandez's The Old Guard is set to premiere on Netflix this July, and we have a new look at Charlize Theron as undying warrior Andromache...

It was announced last June that director Gina Prince-Bythewood (Cloak and Dagger, The Secret Life of Bees) had lined up a Netflix adaptation of Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandez's sci-fi action comic series The Old Guard, and we recently got our first look at the main cast courtesy of some official stills.

Now, EW has shared another couple of images. The first features Charlize Theron as Andromache of Scythia wielding her signature ax, while we also have a new shot "Andy" alongside some of her fellow immortals played by KiKi Layne (If Beale Street Could Talk), Luca Marinelli (Trust) and Marwan Kenzari (Aladdin).

“I had the most incredible shoulders after,” laughed Theron when asked about having to train with the huge double-handed battle-ax. "I’ve never had to do anything like that. You have to learn to fight with that ginormous thing in a way where you don’t kill the person that you’re fighting with.”

The Old Guard

The Old Guard

Theron plays a centuries-old warrior who has died hundreds of times, only to resurrect and continue to fight. When we catch up with her in the present day she's leading a tactical vigilante team of immortal warriors that takes out human traffickers, terrorists, and anyone else who preys on the vulnerable and the innocent.

When new immortal Nile (Layne) joins their ranks, the crew must work even harder to avoid being tracked down by a CIA operative and historian (Ejiofor) who has figured out their identities.

The Old Guard was produced by Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger, along with Theron, Beth Kono and AJ Dix for Denver and Delilah; and Marc Evans. Rucka penned the script himself. Do you guys plan on checking this out when it hits Netflix on July 10?
