The film’s director, Steven Soderbergh, is most well known for Ocean’s Eleven, Traffic, and Erin Brockovich (winning him two Oscar nominations and the accolade of Best Director).
“We are excited to work with Steven, Channing and all of Logan Lucky’s incredible cast and producers, it’s a big-hearted, fun story that showcases NASCAR and Charlotte Motor Speedway as the world-class sports entertainment property and venue that they are, much like the Bellagio in Steven’s Ocean’s Eleven.” commented Zane Stoddard, NASCAR vice president of entertainment marketing and content development.

Pre-production filming started at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Coca-Cola 600, this past weekend, and at this point, it’s unclear when or where the filming will continue.
The reported cast features actors with a mix of talents in action, drama, and comedy, which reinforces the idea that this will be a NASCAR version of Ocean’s 11.
