Channig Tatum, who acted in and co-wrote Magic Mike, is working on a sequel to that film, according to Filmstarts.de.
The first chapter, inspired Tatum's experience in the field, delves into the world of male stripper.
The sequel was first announced in July, and director Steven Soderbergh is reportedly out of the picture. In an interview with Filmstarts.de, Tatum mentioned Soderbergh's long-time directorial assistant Gregory Jacobs as a potential director for Magic Mike 2, but didn't rule out taking on the task himself by teaming up with his production and scriptwriting partner, Reid Carolin.
Nothing is set in stone at the moment. Tatum and Carolin are currently busy trying to turn Magic Mike into a Broadway musical. The sequel to Magic Mike should revolve around the male strippers' tour around the USA, said Carolin to the German movie website.
