It’s been sometime since we heard of the upcoming sequel for Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike.
Now, finally, we got some thrusty forward momentum on the sure-to-be oily follow-up to Channing Tatum’s career changer.
As it behooves a male-stripper epic, it’s visual forward momentum.
Channing Tatum tweeted the picture above which finds the star in the midst of the Magic Mike 2 writing process, staring at a bust of stripper impresario Dallas alias Matthew McConaughey.
There are two interesting explanations for the fact that Tatum is eyeing this particular bust (along with a couple of less interesting ones which I won't list):
Dallas will be the main character in Magic Mike 2. This could result in McConaughey going full thong again. As Magic Mike easily featured one of the best performances of the actor, this would be alright alright alright with me.
Channing Tatum is obsessed with McConaughey and stares at the actor’s face for inspiration. Well... who doesn’t!
Magic Mike XXL should be in theaters around 2015... that is if Channing Tatum isn’t too transfixed by the chiseled Greek features of his co-star!
