Dustin O’Halloran & Volker Bertelmann (aka Hauschka) have signed on to score the upcoming Netflix original movie The Old Guard. The film is directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love & Basketball, Beyond the Lights) and stars Charlize Theron, KiKi Layne, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Marwan Kenzari, Matthias Schoenaerts, Luca Marinelli, Harry Melling and Veronica Ngo. The action fantasy movie is based on the comic book series of the same title created by author Greg Rucka (who also wrote the screenplay) and illustrator Leandro Fern├índez and tells the story of a small covert group of immortal mercenaries who must fight to keep their team together when they discover the existence of a new immortal and their extraordinary abilities are exposed. David Ellison, Dana Goldberg & Don Granger (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Jack Reacher) are producing the project for Skydance Media, alongside Theron, Beth Kono & AJ Dix (Atomic Blonde, Tully) for Denver and Delilah, as well as Marc Evans (Snow Cake). The Old Guard is expected to premiere in 2020 on Netflix.

O’Halloran (Transparent, The Hate U Give) & Bertelmann (Adrift, Patrick Melrose) have previously co-scored Garth Davis’ Lion, for which they received an Academy Award nomination, as well as Simon Curtis’ The Art of Racing in the Rain, which will be released on August 9 by 20th Century Fox.
