TheDailyMail reporter Baz Bamigboye has revealed on his Twitter account three more casting additions to the Netflix movie The Old Guard, which is an adaptation of the Greg Rucka comic book published by Images Comics.
A small group of soldiers, led by a woman named Andy, who are inexplicably immortal and have been working as mercenaries through the ages. The novelty of not dying long gone, the group gets a jolt in their bones when they discover the existence of a new immortal, a black woman serving in the Marines, at the same time as a nefarious organization captures their undying actions on camera.
The newbies include Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years A Slave, Doctor Strange, Children of Men), Henry Melling (Harry Potter franchise, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs), and Veronica Ngo (Star Wars: The Last Jedi).
