Steven Soderbergh's new movie is all Detroit.

No Sudden Move, filmed and set in Detroit is set to premiere on HBO Max July 1. Sonderbergh and his team hit the Motor City last fall to film during the pandemic under strict guidelines and restrictions.  The movie was shot in and around Detroit including Grosse Pointe, Hamtramck, Pontiac and Bruce Township.

The All-Star Cast

Sonderbergh called on some heavy hitters for his latest epic heist flick. Stars include Don Cheadle, Benicio del Toro, David Harbour, Ray Liotta, Jon Hamm, and Brendan Fraser. There is even a cameo by Matt Damon. The movie was the biggest movie to film in Michigan since the state’s film incentive program was pulled in 2015.

The Plot

No Sudden Move is a heist thriller set in Detroit in 1954. The film 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, and with the law chasing them down, the crooks find themselves venturing across Detroit, trying to figure out who hired them for this strange job, and for what ends. You've gotta love the tagline: "Trust is a setup."

The Masterminds

The film is set to make its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 18, 2021, but is already getting high kudos based on the trailer, and it's no surprise considering the minds behind the film.

Penning the new movie is Edward Soloman known for such movies as Men in Black, the Bill & Ted trilogy, Now You See Me, and the show It's the Gary Shandling Show.

Oscar-winning director Sonderberg, who filmed once before in Detroit with his 1998 movie Outta Sight, is known for films such as the Ocean's trilogy, Erin Brockovich, Traffic, Contagion, and Magic Mike.
