After Magic Mike became one of the biggest surprise hits of 2012, there was seemingly instant talk of a Magic Mike 2. While the first film was charming, funny and sensitive, for many, its premise seemed more suited to a standalone story.
However, in a recent interview, director Steven Soderbergh talked about the sequel’s progress and noted that the filmmakers still have plenty of fresh material to work with.
While talking with Pride Source earlier this week, Soderbergh – who is still set to take a break from directing - said that he has been lending a helping hand in developing Magic Mike 2, which is fraught with story ideas based on Channing Tatum’s real-life experiences as an exotic dancer that Soderbergh couldn’t fit into the first film.
