So much for retirement. Director Steven Soderbergh had on several occasions said that he was done making movies. But it looks like “Logan Lucky” was just too juicy a prospect for him to pass up. This heist comedy has Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, and Daniel Craig, and boy am I glad Soderbergh decided to return. I haven’t been the biggest fan of his recent work, but when the guy’s on form his films are a true joy. Judging from this trailer, he might have another winner on his hands. It looks funny as hell, with Craig sporting a comedy voice and Southern accent to hilarious effect. I do hope this gets a local release.
Here’s the official synopsis: “Trying to reverse a family curse, brothers Jimmy (Channing Tatum) and Clyde Logan (Adam Driver) set out to execute an elaborate robbery during the legendary Coca-Cola 600 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.”
“Logan Lucky” stars Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough, Katie Holmes, Katherine Waterson, Dwight Yoakam, Sebastian Stan, Brian Gleeson, Jack Quaid, with Hilary Swank and introducing Daniel Craig as Joe Bang. It premieres 18th August in the US.
