In a move that’s not too surprising (except in how long it’s taken), Channing Tatum has revealed that Magic Mike is going live with an all male revue that will be hitting Las Vegas next year. It’s surprising it hasn’t happened before because it seems like such as obvious extension, but they may have held off creating a Magic Mike strip show/club, due to the fact Tatum and co. have been working on a musical stage version of the movie. However, little has been heard about that recently, so they may have decided a revue was the next sensible step instead.
Tatum will direct the show, titled Magic Mike Live, which will recreate the film’s ‘Club Domina’ with three bars, an interactive stage and seating for 450 guests. It’ll open at the Hard Rock Cafe in Vegas next March.
In the video below, Tatum talks about his plans, while surrounded by hot shirtless guys doing household chores – and with some puppies thrown in too. While the video talks about this being a club for ladies, you have to hope that gay guys will be allowed in too, especially as the gay contingent certainly helped make the movie a success! Channing’s house in the vid certainly looks like a gay man’s wet dream, if nothing else!
