Out and about on the promotional campaign for ‘Sabotage,’ Joe Manganiello revealed to Collider some details about a ‘Magic Mike 2.’ “Yeah, it’s gonna happen this fall. I think they’re going to announce it soon,” he said. “It’s crazy. I didn’t think that would be my first franchise. I never thought that would ever be the direction of my career. But that said, it’s just proof that I don’t know best, all the time. It was the most fun I’ve ever had, and I can’t wait to get back in and mix it up with those guys.”
There’s currently no official word on who will direct the ‘Magic Mike’ sequel, as Steven Soderbergh revealed he would not be returning. That said, it was rumored that Channing Tatum might co-direct with his writing and producing partner, Reid Carolin. If Tatum does direct, Soderbergh has offered to act as DP. Tatum recently shared a picture of himself gearing up to work on the sequel’s screenplay.
