While Steven Soderbergh is currently taking a much-needed break from directing, he has recently made some comments about the upcoming sequel to Magic Mike, revealing that he might not be sitting in a director’s chair at the moment, but he still has things to do in the industry.
“It’s getting pretty far along,” says Soderbergh of the sequel. “They’ve got a good idea. There were some stories and events that Channing [Tatum] lived through that we just couldn’t fit in the first one.
“One of them is a really hilarious and very cinematic idea that we reluctantly didn’t put in the first film, because it was such a big idea you could build a whole film out of it – but we didn’t want to build that film out of it. It’s perfect for this, though.
“I want to help,” continues Soderbergh. “I have some proprietary feelings about it, obviously. I want to make sure it gets done and done well, so we meet every couple of weeks to talk about where it’s going. But it’s gonna be good. It’s a good idea. It’s not a retread. And there will be more time spent with the characters – all of them.”
