Steven Soderbergh On Magic Mike 2
Director teases on follow-up to hit male-stripper movie...
But although the acclaimed filmmaker discussed the follow-up to the hitChanning Tatumand Matthew McConaugheymovie, he still hasn't confirmed whether or not he'll be in the director's chair again.
He told PrideSource: "We actually just had a meeting about it the other day. It's getting pretty far along. They've got a good idea. There were some stories and events that Channing lived through that we just couldn't fit in the first one.
"One of them is a really hilarious and very cinematic idea that we reluctantly didn't put in the first film, because it was such a big idea you could build a whole film out of it - but we didn't want to build that film out of it. It's perfect for this, though."
And Soderbergh - who announced earlier this year that he is retiring from the movie world - confirmed that the original cast would be returning.
"I want to help. I have some proprietary feelings about it, obviously. I want to make sure it gets done and done well, so we meet every couple of weeks to talk about where it's going.
"But it's gonna be good. It's a good idea. It's not a retread. And there will be more time spent with the characters - all of them."
