You might have heard that there will be a sequel to everyone’s favorite man candy movie Magic Mike, and now we have even more details. Joe Manganiello who plays “Big Dick Richie” (aka: that sexy fireman) spilled the beans this week that they would start filming in the fall. We know Channing Tatum is co-writing the script since he teased us with this a while back. As for directing, the original head honcho Steven Soderbergh is handing the reins to his longtime Assistant Director, Greg Jacobs. Soderbergh will stay on board as Executive Producer.
News came out Friday that the title of part two will be Magic Mike XXL. No, not “to excel” nor the Roman Numerals for thirty. This movie vows to be Extra Extra Large, and the coquette in me can’t wait to see it.
Will Matthew McConaughey re-enlist for round two? When asked about it in February, the Oscar winner would neither confirm nor deny, but we hope we at least get a cameo! Magic Mike XXL could be in theaters as early as 2015 so get your dollar bills ready.
