Name-adjective Hilary Swank has joined name-adjective Logan Lucky. The NASCAR-set heist film marks Steven Soderbergh’s return to film-directing after three years spent dabbling in retirement and prestige TV. According to EW, Katherine Waterston (Steve Jobs) is also in talks for the star-studded film, which already counts Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig, Adam Driver, Katherine Heigl, Seth MacFarlane, and Riley Keough among its cast. Logan Lucky follows two brothers who attempt a robbery at North Carolina’s Charlotte Motor Speedway. It’s unclear why the brothers need the money so badly, given that they’ve got a million-dollar baby right there.
