Marwan Kenzari has been cast in Netflix's The Old Guard film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Based on the Image Comics series by writer Greg Rucka and Leandro Fernandez, Netflix's The Old Guard stars Charlize Theron as Andromache of Scythia - an immortal god eking out a living in modern times as a mercenary.

Kenzari will reportedly play a Moor warrior; in comic books, the character's name is Joe.

Kenzari is best known for playing Jafar in Disney's just-released Aladdin live-action film, and has previously appeared in The Mummy and Murder on the Orient Express.

Netflix has not announced a release date for The Old Guard.
