Steven Soderbergh assembles ensemble cast for HBO Max thriller
As production gets underway on the crime thriller, Steven Soderbergh’s No Sudden Move, formerly titled Kill Switch, has assembled an ensemble cast including Don Cheadle (Ocean’s Trilogy), Benicio del Toro (Sicario), David Harbour (Black Widow), Jon Hamm (Tag), Ray Liotta (Marriage Story) and many more!
Alongside the five, the star-studded roster will also include Amy Seimetz (The Secrets We Keep), Kieran Culkin (Succession), Brendan Fraser (Doom Patrol), Noah Jupe (Honey Boy), Bill Duke (High Flying Bird), Frankie Shaw (SMILF) and Julia Fox (Uncut Gems). Production on the film, which is following strict pandemic safety protocols, is currently underway in Detroit, Michigan.
“The last time I shot a movie in Detroit with a great script and a great cast things worked out really well, so I’m very excited behind my mask right now,” Soderbergh said in a statement.
Casey Silver (Mosaic, Godless) is attached to produce the project, which was penned by Bill & Ted Face the Music co-scribe Ed Solomon, and is one of two projects Soderbergh has set at the WarnerMedia streaming platform alongside the Meryl Streep-starring Let Them All Talk, which is expected to debut later this year.
“It’s a pleasure to begin production on another project with Steven Soderbergh, Casey Silver and Ed Solomon,” Casey Bloys, Chief Content Officer for HBO and HBO Max, said in a statement. “We have an incredible partner in Warner Bros. Pictures and an extraordinarily talented cast – we couldn’t be happier to bring No Sudden Move to HBO Max.”
“Steven is a prolific, forward-thinking director who has a two-decade history of making movies at Warner Bros,” Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group, said in a statement. “We look forward to continuing his legacy at WarnerMedia with his intense crime thriller.”
Set in the 1950s Detroit, No Sudden Move will follow a trio of criminals who carry out a home invasion, only to wonder if they’ve been double-crossed when the job goes sideways.
Soderbergh’s recent projects also include the Netflix movies High Flying Bird and The Laundromat, and recently wrapped his latest directing gig Let Them All Talk, starring Meryl Streep, Gemma Chan, Lucas Hedges, Candice Bergen, and Dianne Wiest. He also recently produced Scott Z. Burns’ The Report and served as executive producer on Bill & Ted Face the Music.
