The Netflix film features Charlize Theron, Matthias Schoenaerts, Marwan Kenzari, Chiwetel Ejiofor, KiKi Layne and, in fact, Marinelli.
The film takes up the story of the comic strip of the same name The Old Guard by Leandro Fernandez and Greg Rucka (the latter is also the screenwriter of the film): at the center of the story is a group of immortal mercenaries capable of healing from injuries. The leader of the group is Andy (Theron) while Marinelli plays Nicky, Nicolò of Genoa, a hero who comes from the Middle Ages. Endangered by those who try to exploit their secret, the mercenaries of The Old Guard they are forced to flee and fight.
Marinelli’s name ended up among the trending contents on Twitter not only in Italy but a bit all over the world, because his interpretation would have been particularly appreciated.
