Ed Solomon, who as a screenwriter has worked on “Men in Black” (1997) or “Now You See Me” (2013), has written “No Sudden Move”.

In recent years he has appeared in Marvel films such as “Avengers: Infinity War” (2018), in “Sicario: Day of the Soldado” (2018) and in the limited series “Escape at Dannemora . “
