“Is there anybody on screen more charismatic and appealing than Magic Mike?” Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group, shared in a statement. “We’re thrilled to be back in business with Channing, Steven, and their creative team to bring back Magic Mike’s wonderful combination of dance, drama, romance, and humor.”
He added, There are no words for how excited I am to blow the doors off of the world of Magic Mike with Steven, Greg, Reid, and the amazing people at HBO Max. The stripperverse will never be the same.”
The original Magic Mike film saw Tatum’s Mike showing a newcomer the ropes of male stripping, all while using its profits to fund his business. Whereas, in XXL he reunites with former dancers for a road trip leading to a crazy blowout performance.
After the franchise’s success, Magic Mike has now turned into a live performance that has been directed by Tatum himself, who has years of experience as a dancer. Competition series Finding Magic Mike is also premiering on HBO Max next month, with the series being described as “Ten regular guys who have ‘lost their magic’ are put through the paces of a Magic Mike Live Bootcamp, baring their souls — and more — as they learn to perform sexy and daring dance routines with one being crowned the real Magic Mike. The winner will pocket a cash prize.”
“As soon as I saw what Channing, Reid, and the Magic Mike choreographic team did with the live show, I said we have to make another movie. Mike Lane’s dream of connecting people through dance must be realized,” Soderbergh expressed.
