Sebastian Stan Cast In Soderbergh Heist Film ‘Logan Lucky’

"Lucky him!"

Fresh off the success of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, THR reported that Sebastian Stan has been added to the star studded ensemble starring in Steven Soderbergh’s heist movie Logan Lucky.

The film revolves around a heist set at a NASCAR event, focussing on two brothers. The cast so far contains the likes of Daniel Craig (Spectre), Channing Tatum (Magic Mike XXL), Hilary Swank (P.S. I Love You), Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), and Seth McFarlane (Ted 2).

Stan will be playing a “three-time Sprint Cup Champion NASCAR driver who is coming back into the sport after time away.”

Soderbergh is back on the directing scene after three years with Logan Lucky, deciding to take a producing role instead for the eagerly awaited all-female Oceans Ocho, and passing the directing baton on to friend Gary Ross.

Mark Johnson, Gregory Jacobs and Reid Carolin are producing Logan Lucky, which is currently filming in Atlanta.

Stan’s casting comes as no surprise - since the release of Civil War, he has nabbed a role in We Have Always Lived in the Castle, a thriller starring Taissa Farmiga and Alexandra Daddario. He will also be appearing in the indie film I’m Not Here with Maika Monroe and J.K. Simmons, not to mention the next instalments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Logan Lucky is scheduled for a 2017 release.
