In great news for fans of cinemas and chiselled abs alike, Magic Mike’s Last Dance will be strutting its way onto the big screen after all – and it’s happening early next year.
The threequel, initially scheduled for a streaming release, sees Channing Tatum returning alongside Salma Hayek, Caitlin Gerard and Gavin Spokes, according to Deadline. Hayek stepped in after Thandie Newton pulled out of her undisclosed role.
Magic Mike’s Last Dance will arrive in cinemas on February 10, 2023.
Unlike its male dancers themselves, the film’s plot details are firmly under wraps, but expect a trailer to be unveiled imminently.
The previous two entries in the franchise followed Mike (Tatum), a male stripper who dreams of opening his own furniture business but can’t escape the wild lifestyle of performing.
Tatum had a co-writing credit on the first two movies, with the storylines offering a semi-autobiographical version of the actor’s early years as a male stripper.
With Tatum serving as the director and creator, the stage show launched in Las Vegas, before opening in venues in London, Berlin and Australia.
There are strong rumours of tie-in events for the new movie at global Magic Mike Live venues around the world, with details promised soon.
