Prequel for Joe Manganiello’s ‘Magic Mike’?

More details of Joe Manganiello’s film Magic Mike 2 are being revealed.  While on hiatus from True Blood, Joe will be presumably be working on the second film that is rumored to be a “prequel” to the original.

Here’s what Joe had to say about the film:

“We’re actually talking about the possibility of doing the prequel,” star Joe Manganiello said. “Because if you do the sequel, then you lose Mike [Channing Tatum’s character]. Otherwise, what’s Mike going to do. He’s going to come back for one big heist… so, you would do the prequel – how they got there.”

Recently, Channing chatted about his hopes for the new film, saying,

“We really want to [make it].” Of course, the Broadway version of the film would come first. Now that’s one show we would HAVE to see!

Magic Mike was a hit at the box office grossing over $154 million worldwide, so there are high hopes for this one to do even better.

    Bring it, says I. Magic Mike was a delight. I’m definitely ready for a prequel.
