C-Tates Could Direct Magic Mike 2.


Following the rigid, swollen success of the Steven Soderbergh male stripper movie Magic Mike there’s been a lot of Internet chatter about a sequel.

During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter the star of the original movie, Channing Tatum confirmed that a follow-up is currently been worked upon and he let it slip that he might be the one behind the camera, due to Soderbergh’s decision to retire from making movies:

‘…either [my producing partner] Reid Carolin and I will direct it together, or we’ll have Greg Jacobs direct. He worked as a producer on the [2012] movie and has been Steven’s right-hand man for almost 25 movies. Right now, we’re just trying to clean up the story, and then we’ll make a decision. But it is hard for me and Reid to direct after one of the greatest directors of our time. Steven has argued [for us to do so]. He has said he would shoot it; he would DP it. And there’s another thing: Is that good? Because he is such an opinionated and talented man, if he wants to do a five-minute tracking shot through a forest, you don’t want to doubt him. It would be like having sex with your girlfriend while her porn-star ex-boyfriend is in the room watching you.’

Tatum also revealed that the sequel will be a whole lot cheesier than the original and not as serious or dramatic and will see the main characters embark upon a road trip. My guess would be some sort of male stripper tour across America in a penis shaped bus, they could call it Magic Mike: Exit 69…I’ll stop now.
