After “Magic Mike” became both a box office hit and a pop culture phenomenon, a sequel seemed like a no-brainer.
Now Indiewire reports that the highly-anticipated film has a title, and it’s a good one: “Magic Mike XXL.”
Channing Tatum got the ball rolling earlier this year, tweeting a photo of himself working on the script for the follow-up. Then Joe Manganiello, who played Richie in the stripper drama, revealed that the sequel would shoot in the fall.
What’s more, Greg Jacobs, who has long served as Steven Soderbergh’s first AD, will reportedly helm the follow-up.
According to Indiewire, not all of the original movie’s cast is expected back, but it’s unclear who will make the jump.
Before then, Tatum will have his hands full promoting another follow-up in a franchise, with “22 Jump Street” planned for release in June.
