Are you ladies ready for the news of the week? Naw, HELL NAW, the news of the month? I said, are you ladies ready? I can’t hear you…
Magic Mike director Steven Soderbergh says that Channing Tatum’s dream of making a sequel to last year’s smash hit, Magic Mike, is now a reality and it is “pretty far along”. Unfortunately, Soderbergh will not direct Magic Mike 2, but he told PrideSource (via ThePlaylist) that he’s going to help out to make sure that the film is done correctly, because he thinks that they have a great and “hilarious” idea ready.
“There were some stories and events that Channing lived through that we just couldn’t fit in the first one. One of them is a really hilarious and very cinematic idea that we reluctantly didn’t put in the first film, because it was such a big idea you could build a whole film out of it – but we didn’t want to build that film out of it. It’s perfect for this, though.”
“I want to help. I have some proprietary feelings about it, obviously. I want to make sure it gets done and done well, so we meet every couple of weeks to talk about where it’s going. But it’s gonna be good. It’s a good idea. It’s not a retread. And there will be more time spent with the characters — all of them.” [PrideSource]
When our boy C-Tates started talking about this idea, I passed it off like, “Aw, playboy’s just rappin’ all high cuz he B rollin’ in da Benjamins from all dat 21 Jump Skeet cheddah, right?” But as time passed and he kept talking about it, I thought, “Yo, dat crazy beeyotch is gonna do dis 4 realz, right?” And here we are, just two months shy of the one-year anniversary of Magic Mike’s release all over our chests, I mean, in theaters.
Well folks, I think this kind of news deserves a good, old-fashioned Magic Mike GIF dance Party.
