Olivia Munn cast in Steven Soderbergh's MAGIC MIKE
Olivia Munn has joined Steven Soderbergh's Magic Mike cast. Deadline reports that Olivia Munn is negotiating to play the role of Amber, the love interest to Channing Tatum. The films cast includes Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Riley Keough, Cody Horn and Gabriel Iglesias.
The script was written by Reid Carolin and tells the real-life story of 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.
Munn will next be seen opposite Sarah Jessica Parker in I Don’t Know How She Does It for and the Aaron Sorkin HBO pilot More As The Story Develops. She is also a correspondent on The Daily Show and she just wrapped the indie Babymakers, costarring with Paul Schneider.
I am not a huge fan of Munn, but this cast is pretty solid. I am interested in seeing this movie mainly because of Soderbergh's involvement. What are your thoughts?
