He also reveals the unusual way they film ‘Succession’ and why it’s a dream for every actor that works on the series.
With Steven Soderbergh’s fantastic new movie, No Sudden Move, now streaming on HBO Max, I recently had the opportunity to speak with Kieran Culkin about making the 1950s-set crime thriller. During the extremely fun and wide-ranging interview, Culkin talked about why he wanted to be part of the film, what people might be surprised to learn about the making of a Soderbergh movie, shared some great stories about making Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, revealed how Wright and Soderbergh each work on set, why it’s a dream for every actor that works on Succession, the unusual way they film the series, and how they’re currently filming the end of Season 3 in Italy. In addition, he revealed the TV series he’d love to guest star on, how he loves The Goonies, and we both debate whether or not a Goonies sequel is a good idea.
No Sudden Move was written by Ed Solomon and it’s 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, Brendan Fraser, Bill Duke, Jon Hamm, Noah Jupe, Amy Seimetz, Frankie Shaw, Julia Fox, Ray Liotta, and David Harbour.
