Details surrounding the upcoming Magic Mike
sequel have been pretty much kept underwraps. The director of the first film, Steven Soderbergh
, who is serving as the director of cinematography, editor, camera man and possibly background extra revealed a few hints:
“What am I allowed to say?” he said with a pause. “It’s a road trip movie and put it this way, it’s different enough that once you see it you’ll understand why we made a sequel. No one will be accusing us of making the same movie twice.” (Via Indiewire)

will be an even better version of the first movie, minus an Academy Award winning actor.
