For 'Magic Mike XXL,' Channing Tatum and Co. Got Joe Manganiello Naked 'As Much As Possible'


ICYMI, there is even more good news, regarding Magic Mike XXL. In September, we learned Cody Horn's widely-criticized performance will not be reprised, and this is even better.

Speaking with Time, Tatum said the film is male-centric, but it will appeal to straight female fans — a  "guy's story, but made for women." The interviewer responded, saying the film would also interest "gay men, surely." Tatum wholeheartedly agreed:

You’ll see — we serviced [gay fans' interest] as well, in a way. [pauses] I’m choosing my words very stupidly. [laughs] One of our first stops is at a drag club on our odyssey. We call it a stripper odyssey because it’s a traveling band of strippers. This movie is a lot more fun. In the first movie, we were obligated to show the underbelly — the pitfalls and dangers of being in that world. In this one, we kicked off a lot of the darkness. We’re going to have a lot of fun on the road together. Hopefully you’re going to care about these guys, and then get to see a lot of ridiculous nakedness and stupidity.

Tatum ended the interview, saying: "We got Joe Manganiello naked as much as possible. Everyone in the world: you’re welcome."

Unfortunately, eager fans will have to wait quite a while — the film isn't out until July 1, 2015. Stephen Soderbergh will serve as cinematographer rather than reprise his role as director; Gregory Jacobs will direct.
