Charlize Theron has officially confirmed that “The Old Guard 2” is already in the works. The script for the film is complete and they are planning to start filming the scenes early next year.
This development during Theron's interview with Variety where she revealed it. Later on, she also confirmed it through her Twitter account.
She has also revealed that Marwan Kenzari and Luca Marinelli will be back as Joe and Nicky in the sequel. Gina Prince-Bythewood is also on board to direct. However, there is no news officially on other characters but we can safely assume that KiKi Layne will also be back as Nile, Matthias Schoenaerts as Booker, and Veronica Ngo as Quynh. Seeing that the filming for “The Old Guard 2” will begin next year, we can expect the movie to arrive in early 2023.

The Old Guard was a big hit on Netflix crossing 100 million household views in the first three months of its arrival. The film also ended in a cliffhanger with Quynh back from the dead (not technically) to meet her old partner Andy.
Earlier, we also revealed that The Old Guard 2 is already greenlit by Netflix and the official announcement would come during the Geeked Week, but Netflix skipped the announcement and again the fans were left in the dark. This latest development brings a lot of joy to the fans who were waiting for this. The pride month may have got over but the last day has brought much to celebrate for the whole community.
