Amazon Acquires Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Logan Lucky’ First-Run Streaming Rights

E-commerce giant also inks first-look pact with director's distribution company, Fingerprint Releasing

Amazon has clinched a pact with Steven Soderbergh making his forthcoming film “Logan Lucky” available to Prime Video customers during its exclusive first-run U.S. streaming window.

The heist comedy is slated to hit theaters Aug. 18, 2017, and Amazon expects to release “Logan Lucky” on Prime Video in the first quarter of 2018. The film stars Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keough, Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane, Katie Holmes and Daniel Craig (pictured above).

In addition, Amazon signed an exclusive two-year first-look deal for theatrical film projects from Fingerprint Releasing, the film distributor formed by Soderbergh and piloted by Dan Fellman, formerly Warner Bros.’s president of domestic distribution. Under the deal, Amazon will provide strategic financing to support marketing of Fingerprint’s theatrical releases.

Soderbergh, whose “Logan Lucky” marks his return to film after a four-year hiatus, called Amazon “a fearless, flexible co-conspirator.”

“The deal with Amazon is the final, crucial piece of the puzzle,” the director said in a statement. “The scale of this endeavor required a fearless, flexible co-conspirator, and Amazon has shown they have the appetite and vision to help us navigate these semi-uncharted waters. I’m both relieved and excited, which is one of my favorite states of being.”

The film is about two brothers Jimmy (Tatum) and Clyde Logan (Driver), who set out to execute an elaborate robbery during the Coca-Cola 600, the biggest Nascar race of the year. “Logan Lucky” also features cameos by six Nascar drivers.

Other companies partnering with Fingerprint for the film’s U.S. release include Bleecker Street and Universal Home Entertainment, while FilmNation Entertainment is handling international deals. Milan Records is set to distribute the “Logan Lucky” soundtrack album.

The original screenplay is by Rebecca Blunt. Gregory Jacobs, Mark Johnson, Reid Carolin and Tatum served as producers. Zane Stoddard of Nascar is an executive producer, along with Michael Polaire and Fellman.
