From stripping to….directing???
While we’ll always prefer to see Channing Tatum stripped down in front of the camera — always — we wouldn’t mind him taking a seat to create some movie magic from behind one either.
That said, it turns out the star of Magic Mike may be joining the film’s sequel as a director now that Steven Soderbergh has announced his plans to retire from the industry!!
Though things haven’t yet been finalized, Channing explained that he and his producing partner might end up helming the flick:
"Either Reid Carolin and I will direct it together, or we'll have Greg Jacobs direct. He worked as a producer on the  movie and has been Steven's right-hand man for almost 25 movies.”
He then added:
"Right now, we're just trying to clean up the story, and then we'll make a decision. But it is hard for me and Reid to direct after one of the greatest directors of our time. Steven has argued [for us to do so]. He has said he would shoot it; he would DP it."
Regardless, we have no doubt in the project!! Channing’s in a league all his own.
We know it’ll be ballz-tacular!
