We first reported on this project a few weeks ago, with Steven Soderbergh attaching himself to direct, despite his supposed retirement. Reid Carolin is writing the screenplay, which follows a young male stripper (Alex Pettyfer) and the relationship he forms with an older mentor (Channing Tatum). Channing Tatum first started stripping at the age of 19, and the story is said to take place during a crazy summer filled with booze and women.
Magic Mike was released June 29th, 2012 and stars Matthew McConaughey, Channing Tatum, Olivia Munn, Alex Pettyfer, James Martin Kelly, Cody Horn, Reid Carolin, Avery Camp. The film is directed by Steven Soderbergh.
