Warner Bros. has set a July 3, 2015 release date for Magic Mike Xxl (aka Magic Mike 2) of which star and co-writer Channing Tatum recently discussed with MTV saying, "I think everyone's gonna be back, I think. Obviously no one's deals are done which is always kind of scary." As for the plot, it's just as before, the film is expected to be a road trip movie, but Tatum elaborated with MTV saying: This one will be a road trip movie. Without giving a lot away, we don't wanna make it a really serious, slice-of-life movie. We want to have reality in it, but we don't want to make it some dark drama. There was some darkness in the last one that I think surprised people and shocked people. This one, we want there to be a lot of conflict and a lot of struggle, but we also want there to be a sh*t-ton of fun. »

Earlier this week, "Magic Mike" co-star Joe Manganiello said that the male stripper dramedy's sequel will start shooting this fall and that more news was coming soon. Now that news has arrived. The sequel will be titled "Magic Mike Xxl" and will star Channing Tatum, Manganiello, and presumably more members of the 2012 film's buff, shiny cast. "Xxl" also has a new director, although Steven Soderbergh is staying on as an executive producer. The sequel will be directed by Gregory Jacobs, Soderbergh's longtime A.D., according to The Playlist. Jacobs also directed the 2004 caper film "Criminal," which starred John C. Reilly, Diego Luna and Maggie Gyllenhaal, and was produced by Soderbergh and George Clooney. "Magic Mike" also starred Matthew McConaughey, Olivia Munn, Alex Pettyfer and Cody Horn. »

Whilst nothing’s officially confirmed yet, we’re naturally expecting to see some of the original cast, led by Alex Pettyfer, Cody Horn, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Olivia Munn, and of course Matthew McConaughey, »
