Get those dollar bills ready, ladies! Magic Mike is making a comeback.
Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that "Magic Mike's Last Dance," the third installment in the blockbuster film franchise starring Channing Tatum, will debut exclusively on HBO Max. Tatum will reprise his role as "Mike Lane" and Steven Soderbergh returns to the helm with a script from Reid Carolin, who also wrote the first two films. Gregory Jacobs, who directed the hit "Magic Mike XXL," returns to produce along with Carolin, Nick Wechsler and Peter Kiernan.
Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group, said, "Is there anybody on screen more charismatic and appealing than Magic Mike? 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."
Channing Tatum commented on the news, saying, "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 first two "Magic Mike" films grossed nearly $300 million worldwide and, in 2017, the franchise spawned the successful stage experience "Magic Mike Live." The show launched in Las Vegas and quickly expanded internationally, with sold out shows in London, Berlin and Australia. "Magic Mike Live" has just announced their first North American multi-year tour premiering in Nashville, Tennessee on April 6, 2022, and continuing onto Miami, with additional cities to be announced.
Soderbergh added, "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!"
