Women and gay men of America, rejoice! Channing Tatum and his “Magic Mike” boys are going to be taking it all off — again. 

Channing has announced he is working on the sequel to “Magic Mike” — which is reportedly going to be called “Magic Mike XXL” and is set to be released in July 2015. Shall we start a countdown?



“I think everyone’s gonna be back, I think, and obviously nobody’s deals are done,” Channing said about “Magic Mike XXL” to MTV.

Not only is Channing Tatum returning to film the sequel, he’s also one of the writers of the movie along with co-writer Reid Carolin. And after seeing Zac Efron shirtless at the MTV Movie Awards, is it too much to ask that Channing is writing a special part for the former Disney star? We can only hope!

“We don’t want to make it some serious slice-of-life movie,” Channing said. “We want to have real, like reality in it, but we don’t want to make like some dark drama. There was some darkness in the last movie, and I think it surprised people and shocked people. This one, we want to have a lot of conflict and a lot of struggle, but we also want there to be a s--t ton of fun. A s--t ton of ridiculous stuff that you would never see in a movie, on the fact of the earth, ever again.”

Well, whatever Channing Tatum has in store for the next movie, we’re certainly onboard — as long as he performs more dance routines in skimpy outfits. Remember what we loved about the first one, Channing!
