Channing Tatum Spills 'Magic Mike 2' Details & Reveals Just How 'XXL' The Film Will Really Be
It's going to be XXL in so many ways. Channing Tatum has details on the Magic Mike sequel, which as we've learned is not simply called Magic Mike 2 , but Magic Mike XXL because when you're naming a movie about male strippers, go extra extra large or go home, ya know? Tatum — the very muli-talented actor who's writing the movie — is filling us in, since it is, after all, loosely based on his days as a dancing boy.
We already knew that the movie would be some kind of a road trip movie, but now we know what kind of road trip it will be. This movie will take us from stripper to stripper, as it's going to take place at a series of stripper conventions, just like the ones Tatum went to back in the day. Aww, memz.
Wait. Hold up. Stripper conventions??!! Yes. You read that correctly. Apparently, women flock to conventions to see naked men.
Tatum recalled what those days were like — which is cool for us to hear, because that means that this what we can expect:
The women would come from miles and miles around [...] Then you lock the doors and you say all bets are off. It gets zany and crazy, and it's a wild ride. It's an incubator for insanity. It doesn't matter almost what you do onstage. I don't want to put anything in black and white on a page, but if you've been to one, you know how crazy it gets, and now pour kerosene on that. You've seen Magic Mike – now multiply that. Mob mentality. It's just exponentially crazier. I thought it was absolutely insane.
So it's Magic Mike, but bigger. In other words..XXL, just as the title suggests.
Sooo...will there be naked men?
