Channing Tatum Teases ‘Magic Mike Live” Show In Las Vegas 2017 [VIDEO]
Actor Channing Tatum announced on Thursday that "Magic Mike Live" is coming to the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas by March 2017. Tatum made the announcement in a video that was posted on Facebook.
With the help of a few shirtless guys and adorable puppies, Tatum appeared in a short, two-minute skit discussing plans as to what the next step of the huge movie franchise would be. The 35-year old explained that there are too many gentlemen's clubs, it's time to launch the first gentle lady's club.
The show will be produced in partnership with Cosmopolitan Magazine. Tatum also made it clear in the video that they want suggestions from fans as to what they would like to see in the show.
The hunky actor explains that they want to change what male entertainment has been for years. The entertainment industry has not changed for nearly 50 years, which is why they want to make it better.
The entire show should be about women empowering instead of just guys getting naked, as explained by the Hollywood actor. The cast of the show is expected to do some different stuff, have fun in different ways and make the show more of a conversation.
Tatum will direct the much-anticipated live show along with "Magic Mike" choreographer Alison Faulk. Fellow "Magic Mike" actress and assistant choreographer, Teresa Espinosa will choreograph the show.
The live show will be based on the actor's popular movie franchise called "Magic Mike" which is about a male strip troupe. The movie was loosely based on Tatum's background as a dancer before he broke into Hollywood, according to CNN.
The first movie, which was released in 2012, did well enough to launch a sequel called "Magic Mike XXL" in 2015. Tatum showed off his best body and dancing assets in the movie and its sequel.
The question on everyone's mind is if Tatum will be appearing in the live show along with fellow alums. Tatum teases that he will absolutely step on stage if he gets into shape enough to do the show again, just because it's fun. "I'm sure there's be a lot of crazy cameos," said Tatum as cited by Entertainment Weekly.
