Channing Tatum confirms 'Magic Mike's Last Dance' movie: 'The stripperverse will never be the same'

There's still enough magic to go around.

Deadline  first reported Monday morning (Nov. 29) that Channing Tatum is reuniting with director Steven Soderbergh and writer Reid Carolin for a third Magic Mike film, which is presumably the final installment considering the title is Magic Mike's Last Dance, and it will premiere exclusively on HBO Max.

Tatum, 41, confirmed the news on Twitter by posting a photo of the script:

"There are no words for how excited I am to blow the doors off of the world of Magic Mike with Steven, Greg [Jacobs], Reid, and the amazing people at HBO Max,” Tatum said in a statement. "The stripperverse will never be the same."

Soderbergh also provided a statement, per Variety: "As soon as I saw what Channing, Reid, and the Magic Mike choreographic team did with the live show, I said we have to make another movie. Mike Lane’s dream of connecting people through dance must be realized."

"The first two films grossed nearly $300 million worldwide and, in 2017, the franchise spawned the successful stage show Magic Mike Live," as relayed by Deadline. "It launched in Las Vegas and quickly expanded internationally to London, Berlin and Australia. Magic Mike Live just announced its first multi-year North American tour, launching April 6 in Nashville and continuing to Miami, with additional cities to be announced."

Tatum has played titular stripper Mike Lane since 2012's original Magic Mike film, which was loosely based on his own experiences stripping as a teenager in Florida. The sequel, Magic Mike XXL, arrived in 2015 and was directed by Jacobs instead of Soderbergh while Carolin remained on as writer.

Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Adam Rodriguez, Kevin Nash, and Stephen "tWitch" Boss  have also starred.
