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!!
"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!
