I’m getting excited for Magic Mike XXL (despite the fact that Matthew McConaughey won’t be returning). And I’m excited even though original director Steven Soderbergh (who was able to guide his first film from a $7 million budget to a $167 million worldwide gross), won’t be back either (actually he will, since he’s shooting it under his alias Peter Andrews, which effectively provides new director Gregory Jacobs with the best sounding board ever). This movie will still, in all likelihood, rule. Channing Tatum is of course back and now he’s got company.
Elizabeth Banks and Donald Glover have joined the film along with Amber Heard, Andie MacDowell and Jada Pinkett-Smith. And it has a synopsis now too! Hit the jump to learn the (bodacious) plot basics for Magic Mike XXL.
