Trying to reverse a family curse, brothers Jimmy and Clyde Logan (Channing Tatum, Adam Driver) set out to execute an elaborate robbery during the legendary Coca-Cola 600 race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. To pull it off they need the help of John Bang (Daniel Craig) who is an expert at blowing vaults opens, but there’s one small problem: He’s in prison.
“Logan Lucky” is also a test bed for a new film distribution model. Soderbergh’s new venture will release the film August 18th in a new model with a lot less resources and with a much better economic structure for the people who made the film… everybody’s worked for scale.
Soderbergh revealed the “Logan Lucky” was completed in just 36 days, and also stars Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane, Katie Holmes, Dwight Yoakam, and Sebastian Stan. Stan will play a three-time Sprint Cup Champion NASCAR driver who is coming back into the sport after time away.
As it's working with Nascar for the realistic look, many Nascar drivers will be in the movie, but in non-driver cameos; Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards, Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, Ryan Blaney and Kyle Larson will all be popping into the film for brief roles.
"We wanted to make sure that NASCAR was treated in a positive light, was the big, world-class, glossy event that it is," said Zane Stoddard, NASCAR Vice President of Entertainment, Marking and Content Development. "The thing that we worked closely with Mark and the production on was getting drivers into driver cameo roles. We thought that would fun for the fans, sort of Easter eggs throughout the film with these drivers in these roles for our fans.
