There’s Going to Be a ‘Magic Mike’ Sequel
Magic Mike! Ladies love it! Gay guys love it! James Franco loves it! Everybody loves Magic Mike! (I still have not seen it! Whoops!) If that’s not enough exclamation points for you, here are a couple more: There will be a Magic Mike sequel!!!!! More abs! More jock straps! More butts! More of Channing Tatum’s thick neck! It looks like Hollywood is finally doing something right, everyone!
In a Twitter interview with Glamour U.K., which is apparently a thing (the Twitter interview, not the British Glamour), the movie’s leading meathead confirmed, sort of, that a second stripper film is in the works. "Yes, yes and yes! We’re working on the concept now. We want to flip the script and make it bigger." I can only assume he’s talking about dicks.
Could a Magic Mike franchise be director Steven Soderbergh’s new Ocean’s Eleven series? With other Soderbergh mainstays Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Matt Damon hop on stage as aging male strippers eager to get back in the game? Will there be a montage in which Matthew McConaughey and Channing Tatum teach Don Cheadle some hip-hop moves? Oh, please let this happen.
