Do you hear that? That's the sound of EVERY woman in the world simultaneously screaming with excitement!
And do you know why? Because Magic Mike 2 is in the works!
Director Steven Soderbergh confirmed that the sequel is still in the planning stage, but something is DEFINITELY brewing:
"We actually just had a meeting about it the other day. It's getting pretty far along. They've got a good idea. There were some stories and events that Channing lived through that we just couldn't fit in the first one. One of them is a really hilarious and very cinematic idea that we reluctantly didn't put in the first film, because it was such a big idea you could build a whole film out of it - but we didn't want to build that film out of it. It's perfect for this, though."
It sounds like he has some BIG things planned for Magic Mike despite his decision to hang up his man-thong!
Neither Matthew McConaughey nor Channing Tatum have officially committed to anything, but when asked if they original cast was returning, Steven responded:
Oh yeah, indeed!
Despite the good news, the movie is still in its VERY early stages, so it might be a while until we get to see the boys from the King of Tampa back in action. But at least we know it's happening!
