Coming to theaters later this year, MAGIC MIKE tells the story of a young male stripper mentored to the top of the biz by more experienced colleagues. Directed by STEVEN SODERBERGH from a script by REID CARLTON, the story is loosely based on the real-life exploits of star CHANNING TATUM before he hit the big-time as an actor. Also in the cast are ALEX PETTYFER, MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY, MATT BOMER and JOE MANANIELLO, making this what appears to be the “beefcake” movie of the year.
We sat down with TATUM a few days ago to talk about his upcoming romantic drama THE VOW and he took a little time to fill us in on the details behind MAGIC MIKE. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
