David Harbour, Noah Jupe, Kieran Culkin and Brendan Fraser have joined the all-star cast of Steven Soderbergh’s heist thriller No Sudden Move.
The casting comes as the HBO Max and Warner Bros. Pictures production gets underway Monday in Detroit with Casey Silver producing. The companies said strict COVID-19 safety protocols are being enforced to ensure the health and safety of cast and crew.
The feature, at one point titled Kill Switch, was to have rolled cameras in the spring, but the novel coronavirus pandemic forced a postponement. As such, the project lost some actors and gained others. George Clooney, John Cena and Sebastian Stan, for example, could no longer participate.
The final call sheet includes Don Cheadle, Benicio Del Toro, Amy Seimetz (The Comey Rule), Jon Hamm, Ray Liotta, Bill Duke (Black Lightning), Frankie Shaw (SMILF) and Julia Fox (Uncut Gems).
With a script by Ed Solomon, Sudden Move is set in 1955 Detroit and 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.
Harbour, repped by WME and Peikoff Mahan, is one of the stars of Stranger Things and is due to appear with Scarlet Johansson in Marvel’s Black Widow, which last week saw its release date pushed to May 7, 2021.
Jupe drew raves for his work with Shia LaBeouf in 2019’s Honey Boy and will next be seen in A Quiet Place Part II, which opens April 23. He is repped by CAA, Grandview and Hansen Jacobson.
Fraser currently stars as Cliff Steele, aka Robotman, in HBO Max’s DC hit Doom Patrol. He is repped by Gersh, Brillstein Entertainment Partners, and Felker Toczek.
