Netflix has boarded The Old Guard, the latest project from Gina Prince-Bythewood.
The Love & Basketball and Beyond The Lights director will helm the adaptation of the comic book series created by author Greg Rucka and illustrator Leandro Fernández.
The Old Guard tells the story of a small covert group of immortal mercenaries who must fight to keep their team together when they discover the existence of a new immortal and their extraordinary abilities are exposed.
Written by Rucka, the Skydance Media production is produced by David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger, with Charlize Theron, Beth Kono and AJ Dix producing for Denver and Delilah, alongside Marc Evans. Stan Wlodkowski is on board as an Executive Producer.
Theron (Tully, Atomic Blonde) will also star in the movie, opposite KiKi Layne (If Beale Street Could Talk, Native Son).
