No Sudden Move is an upcoming American crime thriller film directed by Steven Soderbergh, produced by Casey Silver, and written by Ed Solomon. The film features an ensemble cast of Don Cheadle, Benicio del Toro, David Harbour, Jon Hamm, Ray Liotta, Kieran Culkin, Brendan Fraser, Noah Jupe, Julia Fox and Amy Seimetz. The film focuses on a group of criminals falling into a trap.

No Sudden Move is set to be released on HBO Max.


Set in 1955 in Detroit, 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.



It was announced in November 2019 that Steven Soderbergh would direct the film, then titled Kill Switch, with Josh Brolin, Don Cheadle, Sebastian Stan and John Cena in consideration to star.[2][3] By March 2020, Jon Hamm and Cedric the Entertainer entered negotiations, with Brolin dropping out.[4] In May 2020, it was announced Cheadle, Stan and Hamm were confirmed, with Benicio del Toro, Ray Liotta, Amy Seimetz, Frankie Shaw and George Clooney joining the cast.[5]

Filming was due to begin on April 1, 2020 but was delayed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Soderbergh stated he was hoping to restart in September.[6] The film was retitled No Sudden Move, and began filming in Detroit on September 28, with David Harbour, Brendan Fraser, Kieran Culkin, Noah Jupe, Bill Duke and Julia Fox joining the cast, while actors Stan, Cena and Clooney departed due to production delays.[7] In October, Matt Damon was added to the cast in a cameo role.[8] Production wrapped on November 12.[9]


HBO Max is set to distribute the film.[7]
