Set in 1954 Detroit, Steven Soderbergh and Ed Solomon‘s No Sudden Move “centers 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.”
I adore the idea of Soderbergh channeling the spirit of a ’50s Phil Karlson film a la Kansas City Confidential (’52) and 99 River Street (’53).
No Sudden Move will have an outdoor Tribeca Film Festival premiere on 6.18, and then move to HBO Max on 7.1. The costars are Don Cheadle, Benicio del Toro, David Harbour, Ray Liotta, Jon Hamm, Amy Seimetz, Brendan Fraser, Kieran Culkin, Noah Jupe, Julia Fox, Frankie Shaw and Bill Duke.
