While I find the idea of an origin story for people with names like “Big Dick Richie” unnecessary, I’m sure the millions of women who saw Magic Mike will disagree. Turns out, there probably is going to be a second movie for those of you who were left “wanting more.” Channing Tatum told UK Glamour, “We’re working on the concept now, we want to flip the script and make it bigger.”
Here’s the part where I say, wait? Magic Mike had a script? But I didn’t see it and I figure there’s a story in there somewhere. In June, Joe Manganiello told Hollywood.com, “We’re actually talking about the possibility of doing the prequel. Because if you do the sequel, then you lose Mike.”
“Otherwise, what’s Mike going to do? He’s going to come back for one big heist … so, you would do the prequel – how they got there.”
I’ve heard a lot of complaints that the boys didn’t go the full monty, this could be their chance for retribution. Men: be sure to hang out outside the theater post-showing. At least one woman is sure to gymnastically fly into the air and wrap her legs around your head.
Speaking of flying into the air… Tatum is in talks to play Evel Knievel in a biopic based on Life of Evel by Stuart Barker. Weird, I don’t remember Bob Knievel having the most Googled abs in America.
Maybe people looked them up in library archives?
