Before it even hit theaters, creators Steven Soderbergh and star Channing Tatum (which this movie is based off of) is pushing for a transition from film to a Broadway musical…yep that’s right. As if Broadway already attracts enough women and gay men, the screenwriters will also write the book for the musical and can be expected to see it on the big stage next summer in 2013. If this film does well this weekend (estimated around $25-30 million), then we can see this project being put on the fast track. Positive reviews are pouring out for this film and many are saying that it’s more enjoyable for men than women. I’m going to refrain from any jokes.
Magic Mike comes out on Theaters Today.
