Steven Soderbergh has worked with some great actors before, including Matt Damon, Daniel Craig, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and even Julia Roberts.
But even still, the cast for his latest crime drama ‘No Sudden Move‘ might be his most impressive yet.
The movie, which was shot during the pandemic, stars Don Cheadle, Benicio del Toro, Ray Liotta, Jon Hamm, Brendan Fraser, David Harbour and Kieran Culkin.
Set in 1954 Detroit, the story 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.
The script was written by Ed Solomon, who was the writer behind Men in Black, Charlie’s Angeles and Now You See Me.
No Sudden Move is set to have its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 18. It’ll then be released by HBO Max on July 1, 2021.
A major concern we’re hearing most right now is about when we’ll be returning to work, and how we can be certain that it’s safe to do so. Rest assured, this is something we’ve been spending a great deal of time thinking about as well.
While we don’t have an answer as to when production will resume, we are taking steps to address how we can be safe when it does happen. A national board committee, spearheaded by Steven Soderbergh and with members from all categories, has been appointed to do a thorough examination of the issues at hand and to make recommendations to the board.
In addition to Soderbergh, the committee will be teaming up with top epidemiologists in the field and will work with other Hollywood unions.
So yeah, there is no date right now, but at least they are working towards one. It will likely depend on the size of the shoot. There will probably be temperature checks, lots of gloves, closed sets, etc.
It won’t return to “normal” right away, but at least they will be able to start filming again.
Steven Soderbergh don’t need no fancy cameras to make a movie. His last film, ‘Unsane‘ was shot entirely on an iPhone 7 Plus (with added effects, of course) and made for under $2 million. It made nearly $15 million at the box office and received mostly positive reviews from critics.
Now Soderbergh is back behind the iPhone once again for the upcoming sports drama, High Flying Bird. The behind-the-scenes basketball drama was once again shot on an iPhone 7 Plus.
“‘High Flying Bird’ is written by Oscar winner Tarell Alvin McCraney, best known for co-writing ‘Moonlight’ with Barry Jenkins. Andre Holland stars as a sports agent who must find a way to pitch a controversial business opportunity to a rookie basketball player during an NBA lockout. The supporting cast includes Zazie Beetz, Zachary Quinto, Kyle MacLachlan, Bill Duke, Sonja Sohn, and ‘Stranger Things’ breakout Caleb McLaughlin.”
The movie is premiering at the Slamdance Film Festival and will then be released on Netflix February 8th.
You should definitely give it a watch once it’s released. It looks pretty special. Check out the trailer below…
Back in 2015, Sean Baker shocked the movie world when he revealed his beautiful film, Tangerine, was shot entirely on an iPhone 5s. The film received great reviews from critics and was made on a dirt cheap budget of $100,000.
Fast forward to 2017/2018 and the cameras on the latest iPhone have improved even more, so it only makes sense that another filmmaker would shoot a film using only an iPhone. Steven Soderbergh, the director behind films like Logan Lucky and Magic Mike, has released the first trailer for his secret horror flick titled Unsane.
The film, which was shot entirely on an iPhone, stars Jay Pharoah, Juno Temple, Aimee Mullins and Joshua Leonard. Entertainment Weekly gives us more details:
“The plot, from a script penned by Jonathan Bernstein and James Greer, centers on a young woman who ‘is involuntarily committed to a mental institution where she is confronted by her greatest fear — but is it real or is it a product of her delusion?'”
Unsane is set to hit theaters March 23, 2018. I don’t know about you, but I will definitely buy a ticket.
We have been waiting for this one. Steven Soderbergh’sLogan Lucky has released its first photo, via its official Twitter account, and it features the three stars of the film: Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig and Adam Driver.
As reported by Dark Horizons, the heist film will follow two brothers (played by Tatum and Driver) “who set out to execute an elaborate robbery during the legendary Coca-Cola 600 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Craig plays a criminal type they recruit to help them pull off their scheme.”
The cast for this movie is stacked. In addition to the three leads mention above, you also have Riley Keough, Seth MacFarlane, Katie Holmes, Hilary Swank and Dwight Yoakam.
This will be Soderbergh’s first film since 2013’s Side Effects. Logan Lucky is scheduled to hit theaters August 18, 2017.
