Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh’s new movie “Logan Lucky” hits U.S. theaters in two weeks, from the independent distributor Bleecker Street — but that’s not how Soderbergh wanted it.The filmmaker has been trying to convince American theater chains to release his films without the benefit of a studio distributor for years, an insider told TheWrap.Soderbergh’s open and gleeful disgust with the movie business has nearly eclipsed the promotional tour for “Logan Lucky.”To finance the film, which stars Channing Tatum, Daniel Craig and Adam Driver, Soderbergh raised $29 million by personally selling its international distribution rights, a second insider told TheWrap. Soderbergh’s company guaranteed Bleecker roughly $1 million to put the movie in theaters and execute a marketing plan dictated by Soderbergh, the insider said.All these people who work for scale to make this film will literally be able to go online with a password and look at this account as the money is delivered from the theaters.
