Matthew McConaughey has joined the cast of Magic Mike, to be directed by Steven Soderbergh. Variety reports that McConaughey will play the owner of a strip club that employs the characters played by Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer.
The script was written by Reid Carolin and tells the real-life story of Channing Tatum'early career as a male stripper. According to Deadline, Tatum plays the title character, "who schools a young dancer (Pettyfer) in how to hustle on and off the stage. It's a wild summer of dancing, partying, and women. The inspiration was Channing's own experiences as a stripper when he was 19." Tatum and Nick Wechsler are producing with Gregory Jacobs and Carolin.
