Channing Tatum could direct Magic Mike 2 and take the characters on the road

Channing Tatum and Matt Bomer in Magic Mike

With the crazy success of this summer’s MAGIC MIKE, from director Steven Soderbergh, it was no surprise to hear that a sequel was on the way. However, before there were talks about a sequel, star Channing Tatum and company discussed taking the story to Broadway to make MAGIC MIKE one spectacular on-stage show. While the Broadway plan is still in place (and more of a priority than the sequel), the problem with the MAGIC MIKE 2 film was that Steven Soderbergh was taking a break from making films and would not be coming back to direct a sequel. So since MAGIC MIKE was Channing Tatum’s baby (the story was loosely based off his life as a male stripper) it was only natural that he would take on the role of directing with Reid Carolin taking on the screenwriting and producing. So what would MAGIC MIKE 2 have in store for fans? According to Carolin, “You know, we are talking a lot about it. We have a story, and it is really ridiculous and fun. It’s a road movie sort of thing, where a bunch of strippers get back together. It’s more of a broad comedy. I don’t know whether it will happen or not.”  That sounds a bit cheesy, but I guess if you have enough good looking guys to pull it off then it could be another box office success.

You can pick up MAGIC MIKE on Blu-ray October 23rd, 2012. Directed by Steven Soderbergh, MAGIC MIKE stars: Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer, Olivia Munn, Alex Pettyfer, Cody Horn and Joe Manganiello. (AlloCine)
