Wow! You’ll Never Guess Who Is Helping Channing Tatum Write ‘Magic Mike 2’
As Channing Tatum sat over the weekend to work on the script for Magic Mike 2, the actor found himself drawing inspiration from one man, and one man only … Matthew McConaughey.
On Sunday afternoon, Tatum posted an image of himself on Instagram deep in thought as he worked on the magical script. Channing can be seen with a pen in his mouth (yummy) staring at a sculpture of his Magic Mike co-star. “What better way to start writing #MagicMike2 than with my old friend Dallas? #runatribe,” the new dad wrote on the social media network.
As HipHollywood previously reported, Tatum will produce and possibly direct the film alongside Reid Carolin. “It will essentially be the movie that everyone thought the first one was going to be: crazy and fun and less slice-of-life and less drama,” he told The Hollywood Reporter last year. “The first one, we had to make not so cheesy and campy; this one we are going to swing for the fences.”
Tatum is also producing the sexy musical version of Magic Mike, along with Steven Soderbergh, Reid Carolin, Gregory Jacobs, and Nick Wechsler.
