Further proving that Film Twitter stans can perhaps become excellent casting directors one day, Steven Soderbergh has landed an all-star cast full of internet darlings for his latest film, No Sudden Move. What Does That Mean for the Future of Movies? Related

Hollywood Is Writing Off 2020. Written by Ed Solomon (Bill & Ted Face the Music), No Sudden Move follows a group of petty criminals in 1955 Detroit hired to steal what they believe is a harmless document. No Sudden Move was previously titled Kill Switch before it was put on hold in March due to the coronavirus. Another, Let Them All Talk, starring Meryl Streep, Dianne Wiest, Lucas Hedges, and Gemma Chan, is expected on HBO Max sometime this year. Sebastian Stan, George Clooney, and John Cena were all connected to the film at one point. In April, Soderbergh was appointed head of the Director’s Guild of America’s coronavirus task force, so considering he’s heading back to production, we must once again ask: What does Soderbergh know? Tags: From Lily Allen’s new husband to Roman Roy to Honey Boy star Noah Jupe, the cast is full of faves. The cast includes Don Cheadle, Benicio del Toro, David Harbour, Amy Seimetz, Jon Hamm, Ray Liotta, Kieran Culkin, Brendan Fraser, Noah Jupe, Julia Fox, and more. We have to stan. Clearly the stans had a say in that, too. The film is officially set for release on HBO Max and begins production on September 28, per a release. No Sudden Move is one of the first films to be part of his overall deal with the infant streamer. Not a single frame has been shot but let the stanning begin. When the plan inevitably goes wrong, their search for answers “weaves them through all echelons of the race-torn, rapidly changing city.”
“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 press release, referencing 1998’s Out of Sight.
