Last week, Steven Soderbergh popped up online for a Reddit AMA, and there was a lot to digest. One nugget we missed on first glance might be the best of everything the director revealed in his chat: his idea for “The Knick” season 3.

Steven Soderbergh comes out of retirement and returns to the heist-film genre with the debut trailer for “Logan Lucky.” The film stars Channing Tatum and Adam Driver as the Logan Brothers who attempt an elaborate NASCAR robbery. “It’s an anti-glam version of an Ocean’s movie,” Soderbergh said about screenwriter Rebecca Blunt’s script, “Nobody dresses nice.

While Steven Soderbergh is notoriously indecisive when it comes to the type of filmmaker he would like to be – causing him to move suddenly and irregularly between blockbuster, independent, and micro-budget projects – the one consistent throughout his career has been his knack for films about criminals.
