The Immortal warriors will be back soon with new members and even more action. Old Guard 2 is a direct sequel to the 2020 action-fantasy movie Old Guard, which is based on a novel series written by Greg Rucka. Belonging to different time periods of history, these soldiers have healing properties that keep them alive and almost immortal. They like to use their skills to do good for the world, but their secret seems to have been found out by mercenaries who want to exploit it for their own benefit.
When will Old Guard 2 be Released?
On January 27, 2021, Netflix approved a sequel that will allow viewers to witness more of the immortal army. The shooting for Old Guard 2 began in June 2022 in Italy at the Cinecitta Studios. In August 2022, the set caught fire and caused some delays in production. However, the filming was completed in September 2022 in the United Kingdom.
In January 2023, Max Aruj and Ruth Barrett took the task of composing the film. They have replaced Dustin O’Halloran and Volker Bertelmann, the composers of the first Old Guard movie. Netflix is yet to reveal the date for the release of this movie.
