MAGIC MIKE XXL (stylized as MMXXL) is an upcoming comedy-drama sequel which reunites Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez and Gabriel Iglesias, stars of the 2012 worldwide hit Magic Mike.
The sequel is directed by Emmy Award winner Gregory Jacobs (Behind the Candelabra), who served as a producer on the first film. Tatum’s producing partner Reid Carolin penned the script. Steven Soderbergh, who directed the first film, will executive produce.
Picking up the story three years after Mike (Tatum) bowed out of the stripper life at the top of his game, MAGIC MIKE XXL finds the remaining Kings of Tampa likewise ready to throw in the towel. But they want to do it their way: burning down the house in one last blow-out performance in Myrtle Beach, and with legendary headliner Magic Mike sharing the spotlight with them. On the road to their final show, with whistle stops in Jacksonville and Savannah to renew old acquaintances and make new friends, Mike and the guys learn some new moves and shake off the past in surprising ways.
Joining the returning cast, in brand new roles, are Amber Heard, Donald Glover, Stephen ‘tWitch’ Boss and Michael Strahan, with Andie MacDowell, Elizabeth Banks, and Jada Pinkett Smith.
