Channing Tatum and Adam Driver are the comedy duo we deserve.
In “Logan Lucky,” they play Southern nitwits turned criminal masterminds who hatch a plan for a detailed heist during a NASCAR race.
The first “Logan Lucky” trailer previews Steven Soderbergh’s first film since the director said he would retire from filmmaking in 2013. Soderbergh has described the project as an “anti-glam version of an ‘Ocean’s’ movie.”
Riley Keough plays the protagonists’ sister, who joins their scheme with the help of Joe Bang (Daniel Craig), a prison inmate who knows a thing or two about blowing up bank vaults. Also on hand to test out their Southern charm: Hilary Swank, Katherine Waterston, Katie Holmes, Seth MacFarlane, Sebastian Stan and Jim O’Heir.
“Logan Lucky” opens Aug. 18.
