Magic Mike fans may have a lot to look forward to, both on the big screen and the Broadway stage. According to Access Hollywood, Channing Tatum has announced that plans are in motion to create a Magic Mike musical in addition to a sequel to last year’s film.
However, Tatum, whose own experiences as a male stripper provided the inspiration for the film, will not be appearing in the musical.
“I don’t think anybody wants to see me sing,” Tatum told Access Hollywood. “Give me some time to work on it and then maybe.”
Co-star Matthew McConaughey also expressed reservations on participating in the Magic Mike Broadway production, while Alex Pettyfer seemed excited at the prospect of recreating his character for the stage.
In regard to a Magic Mike sequel, the actor said he wants to involve the previous director, Steven Soderbergh, who has announced plans to retire.
“If he doesn’t come back, I don’t know how we’re going to do it without our leader,” said Tatum according to Yahoo!.
There has been no word on when either of these productions will be premiered.
