Two new renowned actors have joined the cast of The Old Guard 2! With time the crew is only growing, and we are all here for it. We know plenty of details about the cast, but now the question arises; will the sequel to The Old Guard tell the story in continuation of the events of the first movie? Well, your answer lies in the article below!
The movie is based on the novels of Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandez. It revolves around a bunch of immortal species entrusted with a very sacred task: protecting humankind from the unknown’s terrors. The first movie was an instant hit but will the second movie keep up with the fans’ expectations? Following The Old Guard’s premiere in 2020, Netflix did not waste much time announcing its sequel. But the pandemic got in the way, and everything went off schedule.
Rucka has drafted the script of The Old Guard 2, and we have complete faith in his work. You’ll read more about the upcoming movie in the following paragraphs.
The Old Guard 2 Cast
The two big stars who have recently joined the movie’s cast are; Henry Goldberg and Uma Thurman. Netflix did not reveal their character details. But these are the new additions. What about the characters who survived the first movie? Good news for fans because the main members of the cast from the first movie will return in the upcoming sequel. Expect to see the following in The Old Guard 2:
- Charlize Theron as Andy/Andromache
- KiKi Layne as Nile Freeman
- Ngo Thanh Van as Quynh
- Matthias Schoenaerts as Booker
- Marwan Kenzari as Joe
- Luca Marinelli as Nicky
- Chiwetel Ejiofor as James Copely
Most likely, this time, we will have a different villain because Harry Melling died at the end of the first movie. Thanks to Nile!
Netflix has not confirmed the premiere date of The Old Guard 2 so far. And we can’t predict the release date either because we are unaware of the filming schedule. And according to specific reports, the movie began its production in June.
So, from where we are standing, the sequel will probably be released in 2023! But these are our speculations; hence it can be earlier or later. You must be wondering that Netflix confirmed the renewal back in 2020. Then why did the actors begin filming? This is because the actors have had a hectic schedule. For example, Theron has worked on multiple projects since The Old Guard premiered. She revealed in an interview that she is pretty excited to work on this project again because of all the action the movie requires.
Victoria Mahoney will serve as the director, whereas Mahoney will be the executive producer this time.
The Old Guard 2 Plot
In the first movie, we saw how the team suffered to conclude their work. But they eventually realized the essence of their work and how crucial it was to humanity. So, we are done with this storyline. As there is no plot synopsis for The Old Guard 2 yet, all that we can do for now is rely on theories.
Most likely, the end credits of the first movie will make the base of the upcoming sequel. It showed that Quynh never died even though Andy saw her drowning. However, she somehow made it out of her doomed fate! She also met Booker so that they might have something up their sleeves. We know for a fact that Quynh will come after Andy.
As Force Multiplied inspires the movie, we can use the comics to reach the bottom of the ocean (pun intended). But remember that the filmmakers never followed the original comic closely because of the financial constraints and other issues. So, there might be a few changes here and there. According to Force Multiplied, Quynh will return with far more twisted motives. She will try luring Andy into her plan. But will she succeed? Guess we will find out once the sequel premieres.
There is no official trailer for The Old Guard 2 so far. And as the filming for the movie has just started, don’t expect to get any footage anytime soon. It will be a long wait, but hopefully, it will be worth it.
So, that was everything you needed to know about the sequel to The Old Guard. For more updates, stay tuned!
