A ‘Magic Mike’ sequel is in the works!
If you like seeing hot male celebrities with barely any clothes on, good news! Channing Tatum said in a recent interview that since Magic Mike has already made ten times its original budget back at the American box office, he and director Steven Soderbergh are already planning out a sequel, which I’m guessing will feature a scene where Alex Pettyfer gets kicked in the dick by a horse. Via Glamour:
How about Magic Mike 2?
Channing Tatum: “Yes, yes and yes! We’re working on the concept now. We want to flip the script and make it bigger.”
Honestly, Magic Mike is the sort of thing that Hollywood dreams about: It’s a well-written, well-acted, low-budget (it only cost $7 Million to make) and made a ton of money back. How could they NOT make a second movie? It’s honestly the closest you can get to printing money.
Channing Tatum hates Alex Pettyfer!
Remember that crazy scene in Showgirls when that one bitch threw beads all over the stage during a performance and then that other girl fell and completely ruined herself and then Nomi Malone sexed up a bunch of people for no real reason whatsoever? That’s what I like to think was happening behind the scenes of Magic Mike, as per this story from Us Weekly about how Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer absolutely hated each other during the film’s production.
Alex Pettyfer’s character may have looked up to Channing Tatum in Magic Mike, but when cameras stopped rolling, “they had massive fights on set,” a source tells the new issue of Us Weekly. “He hates Alex,” a source says of Tatum, 32. “Channing thought Alex was a diva on set.” The beefcake to blame, insists another insider, is Pettyfer, 22, who plays a character based on former male revue dancer Tatum. “Alex was a jerk to everyone during filming for no reason. He thinks he’s the star of the movie, not Channing or Matthew McConaughey.”
HA! That’s adorable. Alex actually thinks people know who he is! Teehee! Although to be fair, it’s possible that someone probably knows that he exists; I mean, there was that one time where he pretended he had a tattoo above his cock because he was too lazy to thank the girls who blew him. Or that time he said that Los Angeles was a shithole. Or that time when Glee star Dianna Agron dumped him because he was allegedly a complete nut. But yeah, the guy’s a gem.
