Back in February we learned that actor/screenwriter Channing Tatum had officially started work on a sequel to Magic Mike, in March we learned that the sequel would be titled Magic Mike XXL and in April we learned that the movie will be released next year. Today we learn that filming production on XXL has officially gotten underway … courtesy of a photo that actor Joe Manganiello shared on his official Instagram profile. Joe, who will be reprising his role of Big Dick Richie in the sequel, decided to let the rest of us know that things are progressing swiftly on production of the Magic Mike sequel … which is ONLY the best news in the world.
It’s ON! #MagicMike
While it would’ve been MUCH more exciting for us to see some actual nekkid men from the set of MMXXL, I’m fine with this first bit of info from the movie set. It’s possible that we may get more teaser photos from the set in the coming weeks … and maybe, if we’re really good, we’ll get to see some flesh. I’m just happy to know that the sequel has entered filming production because that means it’s still on track for a 2015 release. Who’s excited?
