- Charlize Theron has confirmed Filming for “Old Guard 2” will begin early next year.
- Marwan Kenzari and Luca Marinelli will continue their respective roles as Joe and Nikki.
The 45-year-old star announced that the script was complete for the 2020 superhero film, and he acknowledged that Marwan Kenzari and Luca Marinelli would reprise their roles as Joe and Nikki, respectively. But, he told Variety, “Oh, yes. You must be there.” Filming is programmed to begin in the first quarter of 2022.
The first film to follow a team of immortal mercenaries on a revenge mission is based on Greg Ruka’s comic book of the same name. Theron, who plays the warrior, Andromache of Scythia, admitted last year that she and the rest of the cast wanted to make a sequel after the film became popular with streaming service audiences.
He said, “We are still doing this. “Let’s have some time to rest, but considering we all want to do it, I’m sure we’ll strike up a conversation when the time is right.” Theron admits the film’s popularity is “insane,” but insists that she didn’t think about seeing the characters during filming.
He said, “It’s so crazy. It’s so crazy. “I’m not that bold. I don’t want to hear any predictions. No thanks.” Film became popular with streaming service audiences.
In May, it was revealed that directors Theron and Mulan Nicki Caro had teamed up for a new Netflix film that tells the story of four female athletes. Bianca Valenti, Andrea Moler, Paige Alms, and Kiala Kennelly struggle for equality as surfing makes big waves.
The film is based on Daniel Duane’s New York Times Magazine “The Struggle for Gender Equality in One of this Most Dangerous Sports on Earth.”
