Abstract (300 words maximum)

This project analyzes the screenplay of the 2020 film The Old Guard, written by Greg Rucka. The Old Guard presents an interesting look into screenplay development as it is based on a comic series by the same name. Though comic book movies have recently dominated popular culture, The Old Guard’s adaptation stands out from others in the genre as the film was written by the same person who wrote the original source material. Rucka adapted his comic story into a classic 3-Act narrative structure that follows a diverse group of protagonists. This analysis examines how the screenplay for The Old Guard structures the story for the screen and utilizes basic film principles to convey a narrative centering around multiple main characters.
