From Hollywood Reporter:
Skydance has picked up the movie rights to Old Guard, a new comic from author Greg Rucka and artist Leandro Fernandez.
Rucka is attached to pen the script to his own adaptation.
The comic, whose issue two just his shelves this week, tells of a small group of soldiers, led by a woman named Andy, who are inexplicably immortal and have been working as mercenaries through the ages. The novelty of not dying long gone, the group gets a jolt in their bones when they discover the existence of a new immortal, a black woman serving in the Marines, at the same time as a nefarious organization captures their undying actions on camera.
