According to The Hollywood Reporter, Reid Carolin, screenwriter for the upcoming film MAGIC MIKE, is currently working on a 'spin-off' of the movie which he plans to bring to Broadway as a new musical. "We are working on it as a Broadway show, which would be a different story, more of a romp, more of a fun night out at a club with a story," he says. "I'm almost more excited about that than the movie because I think it's the perfect thing for women to go see on Broadway, to be participants in the show."
Steven Soderbergh's MAGIC MIKE is set to open in theaters on June 29th. The drama stars Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello and centers on a rebellious 19-year-old kid (Pettyfer) looking for independence from his family. He meets Magic Mike (Tatum), who seems like the perfect role model- he’s got a nice car, a nice apartment, and a seemingly endless supply of women. He also happens to be a male stripper.
According to the report, Pettyfer has expressed interest in making his Broadway deubt in the musical. The actor said he would "absolutely" do the Broadway show and joked, "I think we should all do the opening night."
