Hollywood hunk Channing Tatum’s been teasing us for a while now with rumours of Magic Mike 2 – a sequel (or prequel?) to this summer’s surprise box office smash hit about male strippers. Well, get those dollar bills at the ready ladies, it’s looking more and more likely by the day.
Talking to German website Filmstarts, the film’s producer Reid Carolin confessed the guys are really up for it. “You know, we are talking about it. We have a story, and it’s really ridiculous and fun.” Not only that, he says they plan to take the strippers on a trip. “It’s a road movie sort of thing, where a bunch of strippers get back together.”
It’s even been rumoured that hunk Tatum might be down for directing it. As long as that still means he’s in it, sans clothes obvs, we’re game.
Before that though comes Magic Mike: The Musical. Currently in production, it sounds right up our street. “The musical will be about walking into the club and surrendering yourself to that world for a night.” Said Carolin. “We want it to be a place where women can scream at the dancers and throw money.” Just a casual Friday night then.
Thanks to all this talk of male nudity, we'd say 2013 is shaping up rather nicely.
