Ladies, stash some underwear in your purse and head to Broadway, cause it's time to chuck some knickers at half naked men. Nope, I'm not talking about some seedy new bar - Magic Mike's coming to town!
The unlikely hit starred and was inspired by the actor's life, so it's no surprise that this news was first confirmed by Tatum via Twitter. While Tatum hasn't confirmed whether he'll reprise the role on stage, he will be on board as a producer. He's going to be producing alongside the legendary who directed the film, as well as alongside other, less well known producers.
The list of talent doesn't stop there: Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey, the bright sparks behind the Tony-winning Next To Normal will compose the songs. Glee writer has signed on to pen the book ie. the play part of the production. Aguirre Sacasa's an old hand at this sort of thing: he also penned the book for the American Psycho musical, which will premiere in London this year.
Soderbergh and Tatum funded Magic Mike themselves before its release last year, when the film became a surprise favorite with cinema-goers, taking a massive $113 million worldwide. Can't remember it? Didn't see it? Have a goosey at the trailer below:
