After taking a break from directing movies, Steven Soderbergh is officially heading back to the big screen, enlisting Riley Keough (“The Girlfriend Experience”) to join Channing Tatum and Michael Shannon in his next film “Logan Lucky,” it was announced Wednesday.
Tatum and Shannon will play brothers who plan a heist during a major NASCAR race, and of course, high jinks ensue.
Keough has already worked with Soderbergh on “Magic Mike” and the acclaimed Starz series “The Girlfriend Experience,” which he executive produces. The “Mad Max: Fury Road” actress will soon be seen alongside Shia LaBeouf in Andrea Arnold‘s Cannes-bound “American Honey,” and opposite Jena Malone in the drama “Lovesong.”
She’s represented by WME and Thirty Three Management.
Soderbergh’s last theatrical feature was 2013’s “Side Effects,” which co-starred Tatum.
