In one of the most unexpected stories of the day, multiple sources tell THR that “Logan Lucky” screenwriter Rebecca Blunt doesn’t exist.
The NASCAR race heist film, which brought filmmaker Steven Soderbergh out of retirement, was penned by this apparent first-time feature writer from the UK whom the cast didn’t meet.
Yet some exchanged emails with her, and the trade indicates this was all a carefully planned ruse. The writer’s true identity is still unknown, though suspects include Soderbergh himself and/or his wife Jules Asner. The Playlist has since followed this up with a report saying they firmly believe Asner wrote it entirely herself.
Reviews for “Logan Lucky” have been very strong, and better yet it’s set to hit cinemas very soon – August 18th.
