Chiwetel Ejiofor, Harry Melling, and Veronica Ngo have joined the cast of Netflix's The Old Guard, as reported by Deadline. Their roles were not specified.
Based on the Image Comics title by Greg Rucka and Leoandro Fernandez, the Skydance-produced The Old Guard stars Charlize Theron and is directed/co-wirtten by Gina Prince-Bythewood.
"Old soldiers never die…and some of them don’t even fade away. Cursed with immortality, Andromache of Scythia and her comrades-in-arms ply their trade for those who can find—and afford—their services," reads Image's description of The Old Guard. "But in the 21st century, being immortal is a difficult secret to keep, and when you live long enough, you learn that there are many fates far worse than death."
The Old Guard is projected by Skydance for a late 2019 release.
