The plot revolves around Princess Amaris (played by Naomi Watts) meeting with the Elysian Prime Minister (played by Harrison Ford) to convince him that The Old Guardsmen should be hired for protection.
The team of The Guard is faced with a rather complex mission: To protect Amaris from a group of terrorists who will stop at nothing to get what they want, in this case, some type of secret file on her homeworld.
The Guard must protect her while also trying to get their hands on the file. The tagline for The Old Guardsmen is “Protecting those who know too much.”
About the movie:
The first film in The Old Guard series, The Guardsman, was released in 2017 and had a 90% Rotten Tomatoes rating. The second movie will follow up with Harrison Ford’s character as well as his team of Elysian guardsmen once more, but this time they are off-world hunting down terrorists working against Elysia Prime Minister Amaris (played by Naomi Watts).
They’ll have an undisclosed role that he revealed would be a childhood friend from his youth when he was living on Elysian IV before moving back to Earth. The film will be a thriller.
He has been quoted as saying, “I wanted to do another Elysian story, and I love science fiction.” The team of guardsmen is led by Ford’s character, who finds that they’re going up against terrorists from the planet where he spent his youth before coming back to Earth decades ago.
The movie also stars Liev Schreiber in an undisclosed role with Naomi Watts playing the Elysian Prime Minister Amaris – one of their newest members since joining forces with us. He continued, “It was kind of like ‘Inception’ without Leonardo DiCaprio,” which made it all more enticing for him.

“I wanted to do another Elysian story,” said Orci, who has written for The Amazing Spider-Man and Star Trek series among others. “And I love science fiction.”
Schreiber plays an undisclosed role while Naomi Watts takes on Amaris – one of their newest members since joining forces with us in this sequel to 2017’s The Belko Experiment.
Who’s coming back for The Old Guard 2?
There was only one major casualty in the first movie as Harry Melling’s Merrick painfully worked out what happened when you mess with Andy’s team.
It’s likely that all of the main cast will be back in the sequel, so that’s Charlize Theron as Andy, KiKi Layne as the Nile, Matthias Schoenaerts as Booker, Marwan Kenzari as Joe and Luca Marinelli as Nicky.
Copley has now seen the error of his ways and, at the end of the first movie, is tasked with ensuring the team remain hidden from anyone who would do them harm (like Merrick).
