Channing Tatum has had the amazing opportunity to work with Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh three times over the past couple of years…his action film ‘Haywire‘ was just released on DVD and and Blu-ray last week, and he just finished filming a thriller called ‘The Bitter Pill‘ (which is scheduled to release on February 8, 2013) with Rooney Mara and Jude Law in New York last month. Last, but not least, Chan’s highly-anticipated dramatic comedy ‘Magic Mike‘ will hit theaters on June 29, 2012 and fans will get a chance to see it even sooner at the Los Angeles Film Festival!!
‘Magic Mike‘, which the Playlist says “is a big crowd-pleaser — for the ladies and dudes”, will have its world premiere as the closing-night film at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 24th. Individual tickets will go on sale on May 29th, but you can CLICK HERE to buy a pass to the festival.
For those who don’t know, ’Magic Mike‘ stars Chan, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Cody Horn, Olivia Munn, Matt Bomer, Riley Keough, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, and Gabriel Iglesias and is a story of friendship set in the world of exotic male dancing. The film is inspired by (but not based on) Chan’s experiences at a Chippendales-style revue early in his career. Chan plays the main character (Mike), who mentors a young dancer (The Kid) played by Alex Pettyfer and teaches him the fine arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money.
‘Magic Mike‘ is executive produced by Chan, his producing partner Reid Carolin (who also wrote the screenplay) via their production company, 33 & Out Productions, Nick Wechsler and Gregory Jacobs, and is helmed by director Steven Soderbergh.
