Scripted by Greg Rucka, the writer of the comic from which The Old Guard is adapted, the film begins introducing us to Andy (Charlize Theron), Booker (Matthias Schoenaerts), Joe (Marwan Kenzari), and Nicky (Luca Marinelli) – a group that has come together over the course of hundreds of years, as the revelation of a new immortal on Earth is something that all of them can collectively sense in their dreams. Led by Andy a.k.a. Andromache of Scythia, who is the oldest of all of them, they are driven to use their persistent lives on Earth to make a meaningful positive impact, and this involves taking on what are essentially mercenary missions that no other unit could survive.
