Channing Tatum Takes It All Off In His Next Movie

Channing Tatum doesn’t need to research much for his latest role – past experience will do just fine!

According to CNN, Channing will be starring in a new Steven Soderbergh film, Magic Mike, where he plays a male stripper who teaches a newcomer how to hustle on and off stage. The role shouldn’t be too much of a stretch, as Channing (aka “Chan Crawford”) knows a thing or two about working a pole.

“This was a wild and pivotal time in my life and I couldn’t be more thrilled to go down the rabbit hole with Steven,” Channing said.

Adds Steven, “When Channing talked to me about this, I thought it was one of the best ideas I’d ever heard for a movie. I said I wanted in immediately. It’s sexy, funny and shocking. We’re using ‘Saturday Night Fever’ as our model, so hopefully we’re on the right track.”

This won’t be the first time the two worked together: Steven and Channing previously worked together on a movie called Haywire.
