Netflix's upcoming actioner, The Old Guard, stars Kiki Layne as an unkillable soldier in a covert group of mercenaries and Charlize Theron as herself.

Theron actually plays Andy -- aka Andromache of Scythia -- but we don't imagine "mysterious, ageless badass warrior" is a stretch. Her character is the leader of the vigilante group, who have been tasked for centuries with protecting the mortal world. Until now, when a mission exposes their abilities to the world and puts them all at risk.

Check out this first look, which shows Theron, Layne and fellow immortals played by Matthias Schoenaerts, Luca Marinelli and Aladdin's Marwan Kenzari:
