Enough of “reading the subtext” and complimenting the story line of ‘Magic Mike.’ Pretty much everyone who actually goes to see the movie is only going to gawk at a shirtless and sometimes naked Channing Tatum. (There’s no harm in admitting that.) So, fans of the film probably won’t be disappointed when they find out that a second ‘Magic Mike’ might be in the works.
Former male stripper and current heartthrob Tatum participated in a Q&A Twitter session with Glamour magazine, where he was questioned about the possible production of a ‘Magic Mike 2.’ His answer was, “Yes, yes and yes! We’re working on the concept now. We want to flip the script and make it bigger.”
We already got wind of this a month ago when ‘True Blood‘ werewolf and Tatum’s co-star Joe Manganiello told Hollywood.com, “We’re actually talking about the possibility of doing the prequel. Because if you do the sequel, then you lose Mike,” and Lord knows you can’t have a Channing Tatum-less ‘Magic Mike.’ The audience just wouldn’t get it.
But to here that they supposedly are already working on the script seems a little bit ahead of schedule to us. Plus, it’ll probably be a challenge trying to make the film any “bigger” when it already has “Big Dick Richie.”
