'Magic Mike 2' Will Be Even Crazier, Campier, Cheesier
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."
