‘Logan Lucky’ Is The Redneck Version Of ‘Oceans 11’ Starring Channing Tatum And It Looks Amazing

By 05.30.17

Steven Soderbergh is the director who brought us all the modern Oceans films starring Brad Pitt and George Clooney. If you’ve never seen Oceans 11, Oceans 12, or Oceans 13 then you should do yourself a favor and get on that NOW.

Logan Lucky is the latest film from Steven Soderbergh and it stars Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig, Katie Holmes, and more. It appears to be the straight up redneck version of the Oceans film series and I’m already beyond stoked for this. The film centers around a pair of misfit brothers looking to pull off a big heist at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in the same way Oceans 11 focused on the crew robbing a casino.

I could be wearing blinders, but it feels like every film that Hollywood wants me to get excited about this Summer is a sequel or spinoff film. I’m having trouble naming any original films other than Logan Lucky that I’m super stoked for. This isn’t exactly a new concept for a film, as it’s following the same formula of the Oceans 11 franchise. However, this film at least looks and feels fresh, and it’s not a sequel.
