"Magic Mike" surprised everyone and is almost reaching the $100 million box-office mark, so it's not equally surprising that a sequel is being planned. So ladies, more male strippers for you in their almost naked splendor!
So Glamour magazine had a Twitter question-and-answer session with the star (via THR), and he said, "Yes, yes and yes! We're working on the concept now. We want to flip the script and make it bigger."
Yup, more back flips in their thongs to make you flip!
This is still in the planning stages so no word yet on whether Steven Soderbergh would return to direct or if Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, and Cody Horn would step back into their roles.

But wait there's more! Tatum is red hot right now, and he is in negotiations to star in and produce a biopic about '70s daredevil Evel Knievel for Sony. "Magic Mike" scribe, Reid Carolin, will write the script. This one will be based on Stuart Barker's book, Life of Evel.
But before the "Magic Mike" sequel, or the "Evel Knievel" flick, Tatum will return in front of the cameras for Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" about the life and times of Olympic wrestler, Mark Schultz. Yes, he will be semi-naked again, HA!
