HBO Max and Warner Bros Pictures have started production on No Sudden Move, directed by Oscar and Emmy winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh.
Produced under Soderbergh’s overall deal with HBO Max, the film’s cast includes Don Cheadle, Benicio Del Toro, David Harbour, Amy Seimetz, Jon Hamm, Ray Liotta, Kieran Culkin, Brendan Fraser, Bill Duke and Julia Fox
Set in 1955 Detroit, No Sudden Move centres on 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.
“It’s a pleasure to begin production on another project with Steven Soderbergh, Casey Silver and Ed Solomon,” said Casey Bloys, Chief Content Officer for HBO and HBO Max. “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. We look forward to continuing his legacy at WarnerMedia with his intense crime thriller,” added Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group.
“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,” said Soderbergh.
Production begins this week in Detroit, where the cast and crew will operate under strict Covid-19 safety protocols.
