After the rather unexpected success of the male stripper movie Magic Mike, a sequel was pretty much a given. However, with busy schedules for Channing Tatum and Stephen Soderbergh the timeframe has been a bit rusty and not too definite. We now have some quotes from Joe Manganiello that Magic Mike 2 will start up in the fall of this year.
Manganiello claims that the announcement should be coming soon and that filming will start up this fall. The sequel has no definitive cast or a director, but it was rumored that Channing Tatum will either co-direct with Reid Carolin or will make his directorial debut with the sequel. Tatum recently went to social media to share a photo of himself working on the screenplay for Magic Mike 2, so it is in the works. We just don't know for sure when.
I personally didn't like Magic Mike and I guarantee the only reason it was so successful is because people got to see Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey strip dance. The plot was terrible, Alex Pettyfer shouldn't quit his day job, and it wasn't that interesting. It was mild played drama underneath drama at a male strip club. I listed it in my "Worst of 2012" list which can be seen here.
