Logan Lucky: Soderbergh Heist Comedy Starring Channing Tatum and Adam Driver

Bleecker Street is partnering with Fingerprint Releasing to distribute Soderbergh’s comedy LOGAN LUCKY, a tale oft two brothers who attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race.

The film features an all-star cast, including Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keough, Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane, Katie Holmes, and Daniel Craig. 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.

The production shot at Charlotte Motor Speedway during the actual NASCAR Coca-Cola 600 and the Bank of America 500, as well as at Atlanta Motor Speedway. In a fun twist, six NASCAR stars pop up in non-driver cameo roles in the film.
The film also stars Katherine Waterston, Dwight Yoakam, Sebastian Stan, David Denman, Macon Blair, Jack Quaid, and Brian Gleeson. The original screenplay is by Rebecca Blunt. Gregory Jacobs, Mark Johnson, Reid Carolin, and Channing Tatum served as producers. Zane Stoddard of NASCAR is an Executive Producer, along with Michael Polaire and Dan Fellman.
Fingerprint Releasing, created by Soderbergh, is piloted by Fellman, former long-time head of distribution for Warner Bros. Says Soderbergh, “This is the result of sixteen years of conversations I’ve had with Dan about creating a new distribution paradigm for star-driven, wide release projects. With LOGAN LUCKY I have the right movie, the right team, and the right partner in Bleecker Street to test some personal theories I’ve accumulated. It’s put-up-or-shut-up time.”
Andrew Karpen, CEO of Bleecker Street, said, “We’re thrilled to be working with Steven and the team at Fingerprint to break new ground and bring such an exciting film to audiences this summer.”
The deal was negotiated between Andrew Karpen with Avy Eschenasy on behalf of Bleecker Street and Ken Meyer on behalf of the filmmakers.
Glen Basner of FilmNation is handling international sales.

FilmNation previously handled MAGIC MIKE and SIDE EFFECTS for Soderbergh.
