Victoria Mahoney, who led the second team of Star Wars 9, succeeds Gina Prince-Bythewood.
Following the box full of The Old Guard, Netflix quickly requested a sequel. Charlize Theron immediately showed herself excited to get back on track, and its director Gina Prince-Bythewood also seemed enthusiastic, but her busy schedule ultimately prevented her from committing to the film: she was preparing in particular The Woman King with Viola Davis. “I love The Old Guard, its story and its characters, she comments in the press release published by the platform and relayed by Deadline. I was very excited to turn this genre upside down. However, I decided not to direct her sequel, but I remain as a producer. I’m leaving our franchise in good hands, as my trusty chick Vic Mahoney will take care of this next chapter. “
It is indeed Victoria Mahoney, known for having been the director of the second team of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, but also episodes of Grey’s Anatomy Where The Morning Show, who was chosen to succeed him. The Old Guard 2 does not yet have a release date on Netflix.
