Well that retirement didn’t last long.
Steven Soderbergh is officially back in the feature film game, following his dubious “retirement” in which he stayed rather busy with his Cinemax series The Knick. The Oscar-winning director’s return to the big screen is Logan Lucky, a new heist comedy that plays like a hick version of his Ocean’s Trilogy.
It looks to be a fun ride with a retro style and an eclectic all-star cast, capped with the “newcomer” credit “and introducing Daniel Craig as Joe Bang!!” That cheeky citation is a perfect example of what to expect from this quirky Coen-esque ride.
Starring Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keogh, Seth MacFarlane, Katie Holmes, Katherine Waterston, Dwight Yoakam, Sebastian Stan, Brian Gleeson, Jack Quaid, and Hilary Swank, Logan Lucky opens on August 18, 2017.
