Our saddle’s waiting! Come on, jump on it!
Channing Tatum is putting on, and taking off, his pants one more time as he boards the upcoming Magic Mike sequel, Magic Mike’s Last Dance, at Warner Bros.
The sequel, which will be the third film in the male stripper saga, also sees the return of director Steven Soderbergh and writer Reid Carolin. Gregory Jacobs, who directed the sequel Magic Mike XXL, also returns as a producer.
“Well world, looks like Mike Lane’s tapping back in,” Tatum wrote on his Twitter, sharing a picture of a script for the upcoming film. He also tagged HBO Max in his tweet, indicating that the streaming platform will be hosting the film.
There’s no word yet on who else from the first two movies will be returning, but we’re crossing our fingers that cast members from the first two films like Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, and our personal favorite, Matt Bomer will return.
Bomer plays one of the dancers in the films, Ken, who is also known for his dreamy crooning. If you’re not aware, check out this clip of him singing “Heaven,” and have your life forever changed.
“Is there anybody on screen more charismatic and appealing than Magic Mike?” Toby Emmerich, chairman of the Warner Bros. Pictures Group, said of the movie. “We’re thrilled to be back in business with Channing, Steven, and their creative team to bring back Magic Mike’s wonderful combination of dance, drama, romance and humor.”
Soderbergh, who directed the first film, said he was inspired to make a third film in the franchise by the Magic Mike Live stage show in Las Vegas. “As soon as I saw what Channing, Reid, and the Magic Mike choreographic team did with the live show, I said, ‘We have to make another movie.’ Mike Lane’s dream of connecting people through dance must be realized,” he said.
Mike can connect to us through dance any time.
