When asked about the prospect during a Twitter question-and-answer session for Glamour magazine, the actor responded: “Yes, yes and yes! We’re working on the concept now. We want to flip the script and make it bigger.”
No word on whether Steven Soderbergh would return to the direct the Florida-based dramedy about an all-male dance revue. Tatum co-stars with Matthew McConaughey (in a self-parodying role as the strippers’ eccentric manager), Alex Pettyfer, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer and Cody Horn.
As THR exclusively reported, Tatum is in negotiations to star in and produce a film about ’70s daredevil Evel Knievel for Columbia Pictures. He’ll produce with his Iron Horse Entertainment partner Reid Carolin, who wrote the Magic Mike script and also will write the Knievel screenplay. The film will be based on Stuart Barker‘s 2008 book Life of Evel.
Tatum, whose recent credits include 21 Jump Street and Haywire, will next shoot Bennett Miller‘s Foxcatcher, based on another true-life character, Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz.
