Were you craving just one more shirtless dance from Channing Tatum? Well, you’re going to get it. Warner Bros. just announced that they are developing a third installment in the Magic Mike franchise.
Tatum confirmed the news by posting a photo of the title page for the script, which is appropriately titled, “Magic Mike’s Last Dance’
Steven Soderbergh is returning to direct the movie. He directed the original flick back 2012. The film took over the world and made nearly $170 million at the box office. From there, it sparked a sequel and even a successful stage show in Las Vegas. It has since expanded to London, Australia and Berlin.
According to the report, Magic Mike’s Last Dance will premiere exclusively on HBO Max. Rein Carolin, the writer behind the first two films, returned to write the script for this third installment as well.
In addition to the movies and the live shows, the franchise has also sparked a reality show.
The live shows inspired the upcoming HBO Max reality competition series Finding Magic Mike, which premieres on December 16. The series follows 10 men who have ‘lost their magic’ as they bare their souls and learn to perform dance routines, with one winner being awarded a cash prize and a chance to perform on the Magic Mike Live stage in Las Vegas.
No word on a potential release date for this upcoming third installment, but we’ll keep you posted.
