Michael Shannon, Channing Tatum to Star in Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Logan Lucky’

In a truly serene combining of talents in front of and behind the screen, Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky is being shopped around Cannes this year. It is set to star Michael Shannon, Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, and now Riley Keough has joined the fray according to THR.

What. A. Cast.

Logan Lucky is a heist film, one that takes place during a high-profile NASCAR race. There are also some thoughts out there that these two brothers may be a little, shall we say… dimwitted?

And again, Steven Soderbergh remains the busiest man of all time who officially retired at a certain point. Though his last feature directorial effort came in early 2013 with Side Effects (also starring Tatum), he’s produced several projects and spearheaded The Knick on Cinemax. Of course, Logan Lucky still needs representation, but I would imagine someone at Cannes is smart enough to realize it’ll be great.
