If a movie can have more Channing Tatum in it, even if he's behind the camera, you bet you've our signature on that boner petition you're passing around!
Costars of Magic Mike want Channing to take the helm and direct Magic Mike 2!!
We think that's a FAB idea!
"Channing has clearly proven he can do anything he wants. He was a producer so in terms of leading the set, he could do it. He creates and sets the tone every day and he did an amazing job. It was a fun and peaceful and professional and open place to work."
Unfortch, Cody doesn't know if she's returning, but that doesn't mean she doesn't want to see Channing succeed:
"I have no idea what the plan is but I know that those days on set were some of most fun days I've had. So any chance to be around those guys again would be amazing."
When asked, Channing said he might direct it WITH Reid Carolin, instead of directing it alone:
"It's too good of a movie, and the characters are so crazy, that we want to go for it. We feel like we did the little indie version this last time, and for the next one, we want to up the stakes a little, maybe go even farther."
As long as we as
a nation the world are economically and mentally prepared for all the boners it causes, we say that Magic Mike 2 NEEDS TO HAPPEN.
