As I'm sure some of you are well aware, Steven Soderberg is set to direct one of the most epic trash box movies since Showgirls called Magic Mike, which is loosely based on actor Channing Tatum's career as a stripper before he became an actor. Well it looks like the ensemble cast is set to get many of coochies wet and nalgas puckering for some stimulation. Other actors added to the cast are Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer, Riley Keough (Elvis Presley's granddaughter) and Alcide himself Joe Maganiello as Big Dick Richie. Bomer (White Collar) will play Dallas, owner of the strip club Xquisite, and Tatum will play a veteran stripper who will teach Pettyfer's character the art of hustling on and off stage.
While the cast does sound awesome (where are the black strippers? Afraid some of your actors will be upstaged in the "package" department?) I feel this film will suffer like another shitty film about sexy dancing, burlesque. If you're going to go all out with sexy strippers and grinding your junk on a bunch of crotches, you need to go all gay with this film. Chippindales type dancers aren't interesting at all. Too much tanner and spray on hair. But if you really showed how it's done in the gay stripper scene, there you will have a movie. But the crows that run Hollywood aren't willing to put their money on a film like that especially when you have a few well known actors willing to strip practically naked for a role like this. Bring on the camp and the sleaze, because that's the only way a film like this will get anyone's interest at the box office.
