Steven Soderbergh, one of Hollywood’s great offbeat entertainers, is putting the finishing touches on his next movie No Sudden Move, which features a pretty incredible ensemble cast and a juicy crime hook.
The movie is set in Detroit, in the 1950s where, according to the synopsis, “a group of small-time criminals who are hired to steal what they think is a simple document. When their plan goes horribly wrong, their search for who hired them — and for what ultimate purpose — weaves them through all echelons of the race-torn, rapidly changing city.”
About that ensemble. Don Cheadle (who worked with Soderbergh in the Ocean’s 11 movies) Benicio del Toro (who worked with Soderbergh in Traffic), David Harbour (Stranger Things and the upcoming Black Widow), Ray Liotta (Good Fellas), Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Amy Seimetz (Pet Semetary), Brendan Fraser (The Mummy), Kieran Culkin (Succession), Noah Jupe (A Quiet Place), Craig muMs Grant (Oz), Julia Fox (Uncut Gems), Frankie Shaw (Mr. Robot) and Bill Duke (Predator). How’s that for an ensemble cast?
Grant passed away in March, shortly after No Sudden Move wrapped, making it among his final roles.
In a statement, Soderbergh said “A year ago I was on lockdown in Tribeca, so I never imagined we could return 12 months later with a new movie screening for a live audience in our neighborhood. I’m VERY happy.”
