Channing Tatum’s illustrious career path has taken him from male stripper to blockbuster actor, and now he’s back on the dance floor once again for “Magic Mike 3.”
Salma Hayek joined the cast of the film earlier this year and tells People magazine that Tatum’s dancing talents will exceed expectations for existing “Magic Mike” fans.
“If you thought she could dance [before]you’ll realize you haven’t seen anything,” Hayek told People. “His dancing skills – he just got better.”
Those who have followed Tatum’s film career from the beginning know that movies like “Step Up” already showed the actor’s prowess on a track, but it’s been a while since we’ve seen him in action. Now, the third “Magic Mike” movie will see Tatum back in the role of Mike Lane — a professional male stripper living in Florida.
The first “Magic Mike” movie was loosely based on Tatum’s own experience as a teenager living in Tampa.
“I was an 18-year-old kid with these crazy people who were stripping for a long time, losing themselves,” the actor said. he told the Tampa Bay Times in 2012. “I guess I lost myself for a while.”
After the success of the first film, a sequel was born. “Magic Mike XXL”, explored how the men of the stripper world in America could use their talents with “unapologetically feminist” approach in the art of sexy dancing.
Tatum and Hayek will star in a third “Magic Mike” movie, this time set across the pond in London, England. Titled “Magic Mike’s Last Dance,” the film will likely serve as the final installment of a trilogy based on Tatum’s eponymous character.
According to PeopleHayek recently wrapped filming “Magic Mike’s Last Dance” and enjoyed the experience.
“Look, I’m not going to complain,” he said. “On average, I had to work with 12 strippers. Not one, not two—12. It was still hard work.”
