The hottest stripper in Hollywood will be hitting the stage again soon! Channing Tatum has confirmed that a sequel to his June 2012 flick Magic Mike is in the works. "We want to do the sequel,” he’s said about the summer hit, which made $154 million worldwide. “It's too good of a movie and the characters are so crazy that we want to go for it. We feel like we did the little indie version last time, and for the next one, we want to up the stakes a little, maybe go even farther."
Hey, any reason for him to go shirtless...we're game.

He was joined on-stage by Matthew McConaughey’s ridiculous and raunchy character Dallas – who looks like he’ll be returning, too! "I know it's something that's legitimately brewing," Matt said last year about the sequel. "It would be so much fun, but I would only be able to revisit Dallas if I…keep him the same tone."
Channing will soon have something else to occupy his time, though – his first child! He and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum, 32, who’ve been married for three years, announced her pregnancy on Dec. 17, and he’s already getting ready for their bundle of joy. NEWS: Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan-Tatum expecting baby No. 1 “I've got a year's supply of food in the basement," he joked about prepping for fatherhood. "I'm literally just enjoying every single day of it. It's been awesome. I don't have to carry the baby!” We’re so happy for the expectant couple…and even more excited to see Channing as Magic Mike again.
