“Yeah, it’s gonna happen this fall,” Joe Manganiello confirmed (again) in an interview with Collider this week. “I think they’re going to announce it soon.”
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.
The sequel, tentatively titled Magic Mike XXL will welcome a new director, Greg Jacobs, and feature MM star Channing Tatum as a co-writer. There’s been no official announcement regarding whether the original cast will return for XXL, so for now, we can only hope Matt Bomer is down to strip once again.
Production details are still scarce for now, but there’s at least one thing we can absolutely count on: Tons of half naked gifs on opening weekend!
