Actor Channing Tatum confirmed that will return to the role of stripper that back in 2012 made him famous in Magic mike. It will be in the third installment of the franchise, and everything indicates that it will be the last: the title will be Magic Mike’s Last Dance (Magic Mike’s last dance).
“Well world. Looks like Mike Lane is coming back,” Tatum wrote on Twitter this week, sharing the first page of the movie script. This confirms that this third part is not only already underway, but that there is already a script written and ready to be filmed.
The new film will be directed by Steven Soderbergh, who was already in charge of the first part but for the second, Magic Mike XXL (2015), delegated the role of director to Gregory Jacobs.

Film and theater franchise
Both deliveries raised about $ 300 million all over the world and, as a result of its success in theaters, a live show was released, based on the plot of the films, which started in Las Vegas (United States) in 2017 and passed through cities such as London and Berlin.
In fact, as Soderbergh himself said in the specialized portal Deadline, his desire to retake history was born when he saw the theatrical adaptation of Magic Mike on stage. “Mike Lane’s dream of connecting people through dance must come true,” he proposed.
“Is there anyone on screen more charismatic and attractive than Magic Mike? We are thrilled to be back in business with Channing, Steven and their creative team to bring back Magic Mike and his combination of dance, drama, romance and humor, “Toby Emmerich, president of Warner Bros., said in a statement.
Although the original film and its sequel ran in theaters, Warner Bros. plans to release this third installment on the HBO Max television platform. This was anticipated by Deadline and it is deduced from Channing Tatum’s tweet, which found the official account of that signal.

An international success
The world of male striptease tackled the big screen hand in hand with Magic mike, a film that since its premiere was on everyone’s lips. It could not be otherwise because those who undress are nothing more and nothing less than the beautiful Matthew McConaughey and Tatum.
In fact, part of the story was based on Tatum’s own personal experiences. “I was 18 years old, I had three jobs at the same time and that was one of them,” he told a press conference when presenting the film. “I loved doing it, maybe it was the first time I ‘performed’ in front of an audience and I loved to dance. But I didn’t really like taking all my clothes off at the end“he added.

He also mentioned the dark side of the trade: “The striptease world itself is pretty grim. The darkest areas were not quite shown in the film. “ Magic mike it’s more of a comedy than a drama. Anyway, the story raised how much one is willing to do for money. At the time, Tatum was making $ 200 a day for a couple of hours of work.
Along with Tatum, they were part of the group of strippers Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello and Matthew McConaughey. The plot revolved around Adam (Pettyfer), a 19-year-old who enters the world of male stripping, guided by Mike Lane (Tatum), who has been in the business for six years.
