Magic Mike 2 AKA Magic Mike XXL has just lost a key co-star. The Wrap has just reported that Channing Tatum and the stars publicist confirmed the exit.
So who could it be?
It looks like Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey has left the project. His publicist said that shooting Gus Van Sant‘s upcoming drama “Sea of Trees” forced him out of the project.
Doh! No more stripping for this Oscar winner.
Channing Tatum previously said that the entire cast would be back, but it looks like that’s not the case.
The film is coming out in July of 2015 and “will follow the male strippers as they road trip to a series of stripper conventions.” Hey, if they can have Star Trek conventions, they can have stripper conventions.
