This should get your juices flowing, HA!
Variety is reporting that Matthew McConaughey is joining Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer in Steven Soderbergh's indie drama "Magic Mike."
Tatum will play Mike, a stripper and dancer who guides Pettyfer's character and teaches him the ins and outs of male stripping business. Shades of "All About Eve," anyone?
McConaughey will star as Dallas, an ex-stripper who now owns Xquisite, the club where "Magic Mike" takes place.
And shades of "Burlesque," no?
But I have a strong faith on Soderbergh. He's a great actor's director and always makes character-centric movies! Apparently, "Magic Mike" has shades (yes, I've been using that word a lot today!) of Tatum's experiences working as a teen stripper in Tampa!

Reid Carolin is writing the script and is producing with Tatum and his 33andOut Productions. I'm glad Tatum is proud of his stripper past. Wouldn't you be?
