With cameras rolling on the aptly titled Magic Mike Xxl, the full cast list has be revealed for the sequel, confirming that Matthew McConaughey will not be rejoining Channing Tatum for the sequel. However, the rest of the Kings of Tampa, including Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, and Adam Rodriguez, will be returning. The original cast will be joined by newcomers Elizabeth Banks, Donald Glover, Amber Heard, Andie McDowell, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Michael Strahan. That's a pretty intriguing cast, especially proven comedians Banks and Glover. On top of all that, the full synopsis has been released, expanding on the rumours doing the rounds that pitched the sequel as a road movie. It promises, for me at least, a much different movie than the original, though still delivering what the target audience are looking for.

Magic Mike Xxl Adds Elizabeth Banks, Donald Glover, Amber Heard, and More to Cast; Gets a Synopsis

29 September 2014 1:47 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I'm getting excited for Magic Mike Xxl (despite the fact that Matthew McConaughey won't be returning).  And I'm excited even though original director Steven Soderbergh (who was able to guide his first film from a $7 million budget to a $167 million worldwide gross), won't be back either (actually he will, since he's shooting it under his alias Peter Andrews, which effectively provides new director Gregory Jacobs with the best sounding board ever).  This movie will still, in all likelihood, rule. Channing Tatum is of course back and now he's got company. Elizabeth Banks and Donald Glover have joined the film along with Amber Heard, Andie MacDowell and Jada Pinkett-Smith.  And it has a synopsis now too!  Hit the jump to learn the (bodacious) plot basics for Magic Mike Xxl.

No, Matthew McConaughey won't be in Magic Mike Xxl, the sequel to the 2012 stripper hit, but that shouldn't dampen your spirits. Not only do we have some ideas for who could replace him, but casting news for the follow-up is also heating up with new additions to the movie, which star and producer Channing Tatum says will be a road-trip film. Though Tatum initially said the whole original cast would return, that's not exactly panning out, but we do have confirmations of the stars who will be back. See everyone who's involved, including fresh faces like the newly announced Michael Strahan, Elizabeth Banks, and Donald Glover! »
