Three friends—a doctor, a nurse, and a lawyer—become the prime suspects in a murder in the 1930s.[1]



In January 2020, New Regency announced the development on an untitled film written and directed by David O. Russell and starring Christian Bale, with filming expected to begin that April.[2] In February, Margot Robbie and Michael B. Jordan were announced to star,[3][8] but the latter dropped out before production began due to scheduling conflicts. Jennifer Lawrence was reportedly considered for Robbie's role, while Jamie Foxx was considered for Jordan's. In October, John David Washington was cast as Jordan's replacement.[4] The rest of the ensemble cast was revealed between January and June 2021.[5][7]

Filming was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.[4] Principal photography took place between January and March 2021 in Los Angeles, California.[5][9] Crew members included cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki,[10] editor Jay Cassidy, and score composer Hildur Guðnadóttir.[11] In April 2022, at CinemaCon, the film's title was revealed to be Amsterdam.[1] In August, it was revealed Guðnadóttir exited as composer, with Daniel Pemberton now composing the film.[12] According to Robbie, they kept production going after their filming permit ended, so the police had to call "wrap" on the film.[13]


Amsterdam is scheduled to be released in the United States on October 7, 2022, by 20th Century Studios.[14] It was originally scheduled for November 4, 2022.[15] It will also be screened in IMAX, with a special screening preceded by a Live Q&A being broadcast in IMAX theaters nationwide on September 27, 2022.[16]
