Channing Tatum's hit movie 'Magic Mike' is yet to premiere in the UK but, it's already destined to the hit Broadway as a musical, and who can we thank? Actor Matt Bomer.
The new movie, which is loosely based on Channing's life as a teenager working as a stripper in Florida, was directed by Steven Soderbergh and also stars Alex Pettyfer and Matthew McConnaughy.
Of how the Broadway show came about, the Daily Star reveals that Channing credits his co-star: "Matt started singing some of the songs while he was onstage (in the film), and he was like, 'This would kill as a musical.' That cemented it for me.”
According the show's screenwriter and producer Reid Carolin, it will be the type of show where the audience can really get involved.
“We want it to be a place where women can scream at the dancers and throw money,” he told Entertainment Weekly.
But will Channing take to the stage for Magic Mike? Apparently not, as he said: “I'd need a lot of singing classes.”
We recently reported that Alex Pettyfer, a British actor, who stars as a newbie stripped gained a whopping 27lbs to star in the movie.
