Matthew McConaughey Might Not Be In 'Magic Mike XXL' So Let's Just Cancel the Whole Thing
Hearing this news, you might as well take one "X" out of the title. Matthew McConaughey might not be in Magic Mike XXL , the very anticipated and very large (judging by its title, at least) sequel to the cult hit about male strippers. Does Channing Tatum know? The abs — I mean, auteur — behind this project has already started working on the script.
Here's what we know. Gabriel Iglesias, who WILL be involved, spoke to Dish Nation and said:
Word has it that Matt’s probably not gonna be involved, because he’s worth a lot of money now – that whole Oscar thing – so, but yeah, I’ve signed on for part two.
Now, last I checked, Oscars and money do NOT make you too good for a very important MOMENT IN CINEMA about male strippers. And never did a movie star say, "ughhh, I have too much money. SO MUCH IT HURTS." However, given that McConaughey does probably have a lot of projects lined up in his post-Oscar career, it's likely that Iglesias's words may very well be the truth. It's a sad day for male strippers everywhere. Let's burn our banana hammocks.
