Magic Mike is returning to burn up the dance floors again, and Channing Tatum will star as the stripper-turned-businessman.
As per Deadline, Warner Bros will release Magic Mike’s Last Dance, with Tatum set to return as Mike Lane. Soderbergh will return to direct with Reid Carolin writing the script for the sequel. Currently, the plan is to release Magic Mike’s Last Dance exclusively on HBO Max.
“Is there anybody on screen more charismatic and appealing than Magic Mike?” said Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group, “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.”
“There are no words for how excited I am to blow the doors off of the world of Magic Mike with Steven, Greg, Reid, and the amazing people at HBO Max. The stripperverse will never be the same,” said Tatum.
The Magic Mike films have been a success, grossing nearly $300 million worldwide and spawning the successful stage show Magic Mike Live in 2017. Steven Soderbergh helmed the first Magic Mike film in 2012, while Gregory Jacobs directed the 2015 hit Magic Mike XXL.
