There rumors before the film even came out that a '21 Jump Street' sequel was in the works. This is somewhat obviously confirmed by the film's ending that teases where Jenko and Schmidt would go in another installment. Jonah Hill and Michael Bacall (who wrote the original) were working on the script but no one expected things to move this quickly as Sony says filming is expected to begin this fall.
Enough of "reading the subtext" and complimenting the story line of 'Magic Mike.' Pretty much everyone who actually goes to see the movie is only going to gawk at a shirtless and sometimes naked Channing Tatum. (There's no harm in admitting that.) So, fans of the film probably won't be disappointed when they find out that a second 'Magic Mike' might be in the works.
When you're coming off three back-to-back-to-back hits, it's time to strike while the fire is hot, and Channing Tatum is wasting no time or the clout that came from 'The Vow,' '21 Jump Street' and 'Magic Mike.' He and his production company are looking to make a bio-pic about the famous daredevil Evel Knievel.
My grandmother had something she loved to say. “What's good for the goose is good for the gander.” (Yes, my grandmother was a talking Grant Wood painting.) We live in an age where titillating sexploitation films with half-naked women are dropped into theaters every few weeks so maybe once in a while it should be the menfolk who get naked?
But a funny thing happened on the way to the strip club. 'Magic Mike' - which one could be forgiven for dismissing as a beefcake 'Showgirls' based solely on the ads - is the latest from American cinema's most skilled mercenary, Steven Soderbergh. Oh, it's got abs in your face and then some, but it's also a smart look at blue collar struggles in one of America's less-glamorous outposts.
