logan-lucky-in-charlotteIn about 2 weeks, some of the biggest stars in Hollywood will be coming to the Charlotte region to film the upcoming film called ‘Logan Lucky’ – the biggest movie to be shot in Charlotte since last year’s ‘Masterminds‘.

The premise of the new comedy involves the siblings of the Logan family attempting to reverse a family curse. Siblings Jimmy, (Channing Tatum) Mellie (Riley Keough) and Clyde Logan (Adam Driver) attempt to execute an elaborate robbery during the Coca-Cola 600, after accomplice Joe Bang (Daniel Craig) gets out of prison.

During an Entertainment Weekly interview, director Steven Soderbergh called his new heist movie is a radical take on the wildly popular ocean’s movies, “on the most obvious level, it’s the complete inversion of an Ocean’s movie. It’s an anti-glam version of an Ocean’s movie. Nobody dresses nice. Nobody has nice stuff. They have no money. They have no technology. It’s all rubber band technology, and that’s what I thought was fun about it. It seemed familiar to me, but different enough. The landscape, the characters, and the canvass were the complete opposite of an Ocean’s film.”

The full cast, who will presumably all be in the Charlotte area over the next few weeks, includes:

Katherine Waterston Katherine Waterston

Riley Keough Riley Keough Mellie Logan
Channing Tatum Channing Tatum Jimmy Logan
Adam Driver Adam Driver Clyde Logan
Daniel Craig Daniel Craig Joe Bang

Brian Gleeson Brian Gleeson Sam Bang

 

The new movie will be opening across the country on August 18th.
