If Any More Sexy Studs Join Channing Tatum’s Male Stripper Movie, We Won’t Even Reach The Theater

“Steven Soderbergh,” “Channing Tatum” and “male strippers” are not three terms we ever thought we’d see linked together. But it looks like the Contagion director is planning on turning Tatum’s true tale of his early days as an “exotic dancer” into a movie called One Night in Channing Magic Mike. (This would be before Soderbergh tackles the Liberace bio-pic. Stevie baby, is there something you want to tell us?)

True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello, the latest hunk to be attached to the project, joins Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer, and Matt Bomer, who are all already signed on. Set to begin production in September, Magic Mike features Tatum as a veteran stripper who mentors a younger dancer (Pettyfer) in the art of hustling. McConaughey plays a dancer-turned-owner at the club where they work. According to Entertainment Weekly, Manganiello would play the well-endowed Big Dick Richie, a role that ” is sure to require the ripped actor to drop trou at one point or another.”  

Tatum says of his banana-smuggling days. “This was a wild and pivotal time in my life…and I couldn’t be more thrilled to go down the rabbit hole with Steven.”

We would totally love to see Manganiello go down Tatum’s rabbit hole. (Oh, c’mon he practically set himself  up!)

    Best. Movie. Ever. Is it too soon to pre-order tickets?

  • Michael

    This is the most important movie that has ever been made in my lifetime.

    I’m PRAYING this will be Showgirls-level so-bad-it’s-good.

    Zack Carey: Why did you stop hooking? You had your future pretty well mapped out for yourself
    Nomi Malone: I did what I had to do.
    Zack Carey: Just like you did with Cristal.
    Nomi Malone: I’m not a whore.
    Zack Carey: No… you’re not. You’re gonna be a big star. Your face is gonna be up on billboards. You’re gonna make a lot of money for the Stardust.
    Nomi Malone: What about Molly?
    Zack Carey: I’ll make sure he gives her enough money, she can have a dress shop. Tell me something, how much did you charge?
    [Nomi is confused]
    Zack Carey: Hooking
    Nomi Malone: Fifty. Hundred sometimes.
    Zack Carey: You got low self-esteem baby, you’re a fantastic fuck.
    [Nomi spits in his face]

    They just don’t WRITE dialogue like that any more! I think Congress made a law about it.

    THIS is true equality. Women are getting more subtle, nuanced roles, and men are getting more “gritty” roles that require them to get naked. And we could certainly use more of both!

  • Random

    At least they have one real actor, Bomer. Bonus is that he is the most beautiful! Where can I reorder tix!
