For a more independent filmmaker like Steven Soderbergh, streaming services have been a godsend, allowing the always unique filmmaker to make films they way he wants. With Netflix, he managed to make The Laundromat and High Flying Bird. Now, with his new deal with HBO Max, he's already got one film set for release soon titled Let Them All Talk (Starring Meryl Streep and Candice Bergen) and now he's announced the cast for his next film for the streaming service.
Titled No Sudden Move (Although originally titled Kill Switch) will be set in Detroit in 1955 and will center on a group of small-time criminals who are hired to steal what they think is a simple document. However, when their plan goes horribly wrong, they must maneuver through all echelons of the race-torn, rapidly changing city to find out who hired them and why. Keeping with his usual pedigree for assembling an unlikely batch of actors, it's been confirmed today that the main cast of the film will be comprised of Don Cheadle, Benicio Del Toro, David Harbour, Amy Seimetz, Jon Hamm, Ray Liotta, Kieran Culkin, Brendan Fraser, Noah Jupe, Bill Duke, Frankie Shaw, and Julia Fox.
No Sudden Move hails from screenwriter Ed Solomon (Bill & Ted Face the Music, Men in Black) with Casey Silver producing the film. Stay tuned!
