Steven Soderbergh’s return to film, Logan Lucky, is set to race into theaters Aug. 18.

Logan Lucky stars Channing Tatum and Adam Driver as brothers trying to overcome a family curse by staging a complex robbery during NASCAR’s Coca-Cola 600. The star-studded cast also includes Daniel Craig, Katie Holmes, Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough, Sebastian Stan, and Katherine Waterston.

“This is the result of 16 years of conversations I’ve had with Dan [Fellman] about creating a new distribution paradigm for star-driven, wide release projects,” Soderbergh said in a statement. “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.”

The film marks the official return to directing for Soderbergh. Having declared as early as 2011 that he was retiring from filmmaking, the director behind the Ocean’s trilogy hasn’t helmed a movie since 2013’s Side Effects, which also starred Tatum. Soderbergh has still been busy, most notably directing Cinemax series The Knick.
