Warner Bros. Pictures has been released the first trailer for Don Cheadle’s new heist movie, No Sudden Move. The star-studded crime drama thriller from Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh is produced by Casey Silver, from a script by Ed Solomon. Julie M. Anderson executive produced.
Set in 1954 Detroit, the Don Cheadle starrer tells the story of a group of small-time criminals who are hired to steal what they think is a simple document. While watching the family of the man tasked with getting the papers, the mission starts to go horribly wrong. As they hunt for the person who set them up, the crime group ultimately becomes engulfed in a much larger mystery that weaves them through all echelons of the race-torn, rapidly changing city.
Starring alongside Don Cheadle as Curt Goynes is Benicio del Toro as Ronald Russo, David Harbour as Matt Wertz, Amy Seimetz as Mary Wertz, Jon Hamm as Joe Finney, Ray Liotta as Frank Capelli, Kieran Culkin as Charley, Brendan Fraser as Jones, and Julia Fox as Vanessa Capelli
Don Cheadle and Benicio del Toro are the central characters, with Kieran Culkin serving as a potential foil to their plan. Jon Hamm appears to be in some sort of law enforcement role, while Amy Seimetz provides the comedic relief as a jittery hostage. No Sudden Move features an ensemble cast and will make its cinematic debut at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 18, 2021.
It also features the final on-screen appearance of Craig Grant, along with a guest appearance by Matt Damon. Noah Jupe, Bill Duke, Frankie Shaw, and Byron Bowers also star.
The director’s creative team behind the scenes included Oscar-winning production designer Hannah Beachler (Black Panther), costume designer Marci Rodgers (BlacKkKlansman), with music by David Holmes (Baby Driver, Killing Eve).
Although Don Cheadle extended his global recognition as James Rhodes/War Machine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he is no stranger to more serious roles. In 2004 he was nominated for an Academy Award for his lead role as Rwandan hotel manager Paul Rusesabagina in the historical genocide drama film Hotel Rwanda.
From 2012 to 2016, he starred as Marty Kaan on the Showtime comedy series House of Lies and won a Golden Globe Award for the role. Cheadle also starred as Maurice Monroe in the Showtime series Black Monday, a role which earned him a Primetime Emmy Award nomination in 2019.
Off-screen, Don Cheadle is quietly involved in activism projects close to his heart. He has worked with the United Nations on climate change concerns. Along with Harrison Ford, the actor has created a documentary event series called Years of Living Dangerously that gives viewers first-hand reports on those affected by and seeking solutions to climate change. Cheadle is also on the Advisory Board of Citizens’ Climate Lobby. His efforts haven’t gone unnoticed either. In 2010, Cheadle was named U.N. Environment Program Goodwill Ambassador.
No Sudden Move is scheduled to be released by HBO Max on July 1, 2021.
