MAGIC MIKE Sequel Lands Director and Title

     March 28, 2014

Just yesterday we brought you word, via Joe Manganiello, that the Magic Mike sequel would be getting underway this fall.  As of that report, there was no director or even a title attached to the follow-up film.  That’s all changed as of today.  A new report has Gregory Jacobs attached as director, even though it was previously speculated that Channing Tatum and producing/writing partner Reid Carolin were thinking about co-directing.  Jacobs has been Steven Soderbergh’s First Assistant Director for quite some time, so with Soderbergh remaining as executive producer, it makes sense to have Jacobs at the helm.  Though we’re still waiting for an official announcement, The Playlist also has word that the sequel will be titled Magic Mike XXL. Make of that title what you will.  The important part is that the fan-favorite film, and surprise box office hit of 2012, is keeping the party going strong.
