And now another big-budget film led by a big star is on its way, with Charlize Theron set to star in The Old Guard, a new superhero movie based on the graphic novel of the same name.

The film centres on a warrior named Andy (Theron) who leads a group of apparently immortal tight-knit mercenaries who have been protecting the mortal world for centuries.

According to the official plot synopsis, “It is a gritty, grounded, action-packed story that shows living forever is harder than it looks.”
