With Steven Soderbergh’s fantastic new movie, No Sudden Move, now streaming on HBO Max, I recently had the opportunity to speak with Brendan Fraser and Bill Duke about making the 1950s-set crime thriller. During the interview, Fraser and Duke talked about why they loved Ed Solomon’s script, the way it weaved in the many twists and turns, what people would be surprised to learn about the making of a Soderbergh movie, how the film mixes in historically accurate information, and more.
If you haven’t seen the trailers, No Sudden Move is about a group of small-time criminals who are hired to steal what they think is a simple document in 1954 Detroit. When the plan goes sideways, they’re forced to search for who hired them and for what ultimate purpose and their journey takes them through the race-torn, rapidly changing city. The film also stars Benicio Del Toro, Don Cheadle, Jon Hamm, Noah Jupe, Amy Seimetz, Frankie Shaw, Kieran Culkin, Ray Liotta, Julia Fox, and David Harbour.
