Magic Mike 2 is coming, says Channing Tatum


Magic Mike has made solid box office business, and it’s quickly becoming a staple for the girl’s night out, so it’s not surprise a sequel may be on its way, according to Channing Tatum. Tatum claims “We’re working on the concept now. We want to flip the script and make it bigger.” “Make it bigger” is probably some sort of reference to abs and male nudity. Or they’re just referencing the penis pump shot.

I’d imagine Steven Soderbergh won’t be back to direct any future Magic Mike sequel, assuming he’s still going along with decided to retire some fourteen thousand movies from now, so there’s a good chance a sequel as inherently unnecessary as this would hold up as well as the original. Since this kind of feels like an all around bad idea, let’s hope Tatum’s just talking out his well-toned ass, and this will be the last we hear of a Magic Mike 2.
