Could there be a 'Magic Mike XXXL'?

Magic Mike XXL dances into theaters on Wednesday but the fact that there’s even one sequel to Magic Mike is still a huge shock to the cast. With XXL likely to repeat the original’s box office ($113.7 million), is it possible we’re witnessing a male stripper trilogy?

“To be completely honest—as one of the people who helped write the things—someone else is gonna have to figure that out because it was really clear where the second one went,” says star and producer Channing Tatum. “If people want a space movie, I’m happy to do that one.”

Jokes co-star Joe Manganiello, “If Christopher Nolan has an idea, please contact Channing.”

Keeping control of your junk in zero gravity could prove difficult though. Quips Tatum, “It wouldn’t hang down in space.”
