I know it may seem highly unlikely, but it looks like a sequel to Steven Soderbergh‘s extremely successful male stripper/post stock market crash film Magic Mike might actually happen. I doubt Soderbergh would return to direct, but star Channing Tatum has gone on the record to confirm a sequel, when asked by First Showing.
Here’s exactly what he said:
“Yes, yes and yes! We’re working on the concept now. We want to flip the script and make it bigger.”
I’m not sure how you could make a sequel any bigger, but leave it to Tatum and the crew to surprise us yet again.
If you haven’t seen Magic Mike yet I’d highly suggest you go about doing so quickly, because it really is one of the better films out this year. My review can be read right here.
