Channing Tatum Gives MTV A Sneak Peek Of His Stripper Movie 'Magic Mike'
Channing Tatum appeared with co-star Matthew McConaughey at an MTV Sneak Peek Screening of Magic Mike on Thursday. The event was part of the network's Sneak Peek Week leading up to the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday.
Magic Mike, which is based on Tatum's early career as a male stripper and also stars Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer and Alex Pettyfer, is out June 29. Director Steven Soderbergh was instrumental in getting Tatum to tell his story on the big screen. "I was having a beer with Soderbergh — we were doing a movie together — and I told him about [my past stripping]. I'd been doing it for eight months of my life when I was, like, 18 or 19, and he said, 'We gotta make a movie out of that," Tatum told MTV. "And I was like, 'Why? Why do we need to do that?' And he said, 'I've never seen that world on film before.' And then we really started talking about that, and we thought it would be really hilarious but still grounded in reality."
