We’ve seen a few on-set images of Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming stripper buddy comedy, “Magic Mike”, but now that we have the first official still, can we just say this is one film we’re definitely looking forward to next year?
Starring rising Hollywood stars including Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Matt Bomer, Cody Horn and Riley Keough, the film is based on the teenage experiences of Tatum, who dabbled in the art of male stripping when he was 19.
Tatum plays the titular Magic Mike, who takes an inexperienced young dancer called The Kid (played by Pettyfer) under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money. Soderbergh was approached by Tatum after they worked together on “Haywire.” and he agreed to direct as he felt the story was one he had yet to see on the big screen.
“Magic Mike” is out on wide release on June 29th, 2012 and the full image is below.
