Channing Tatum might direct Magic Mike 2, and Steven Soderbergh might shoot it

Steven Soderbergh isn’t exactly going gently into the good night. Though he’s supposedly retired from directing feature films, he’s still open to acting as a cinematographer for pals.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Channing Tatum revealed that Soderbergh has offered to be DP on his sequel to Magic Mike (which, by the way, is going to be a road-trip movie).

But this gesture gives Tatum, who is considering co-directing with producer and screenwriter Reid Carolin, pause.

“Is that good? Because he is such an opinionated and talented man, if he wants to do a five-minute tracking shot through a forest, you don’t want to doubt him. It would be like having sex with your girlfriend while her porn-star ex-boyfriend is in the room watching you.”

Tatum promises Magic Mike 2 will be “the movie that everyone thought the first one was going to be: crazy and fun and less slice-of-life and less drama.”
