White House Down star Channing Tatum recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter and teased the inevitable sequel to Magic Mike, his semi-autobiographical strip flick.

"We're developing Magic Mike 2, but [director Steven Soderbergh] really wants to be done directing movies," says the new dad, who revealed that he may direct the follow-up himself. "We'll see. I wish people would lobby him to finish what he started: 'Come on, man! Stop being stubborn and come back.' I've said that to him, but he is a very fixed-in-his-ways guy, and if he says it, it is hard to change."

So what will Magic Mike 2 be about? "It will be a road-trip movie, and it will essentially be the movie that everyone thought the first one was going to be: crazy and fun and less slice-of-life and less drama. The first one, we had to make not so cheesy and campy; this one we are going to swing for the fences."
