Today in Channing Tatum stripper announcements: Magic Mike 2 will officially be called … Magic Mike XXL. Bless them. In other news, Greg Jacobs, Steven Soderbergh’s creative partner, will direct the sequel (Soderbergh will stay on as an executive producer), and Joe Manganiello says they’ll start shooting this fall. Great, wonderful, more “Pony” for all.
