Good news for fans of Channing Tatum getting sexy in the upcoming Magic Mike 3 — there’s going to be a lap dance! In a new interview with People, Salma Hayek said that Tatum’s dance skills will exceed the fanbase’s expectations.
Hayek, who joined the film’s cast earlier this year replacing Thandiwe Newton, said, “Look, I’m not going to complain. On an average day, I had to work with 12 strippers. Not one, not two—12. It was still hard work.”
The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard gushed about Tatum’s dancing saying, “If you thought he could dance [before], you are going to realize you haven’t seen anything. His dance skills — he just got better.” Tatum recently confirmed that he gives a lap dance in the movie, but as for who the lucky lady will be, we may just have to wait until the movie comes out.
Hayek said of her Magic Mike character, “It’s the strongest love story, the strongest female character, from beginning to end. How lucky am I?”
Tatum revealed in November 2021 that his character that Mike Lane will be back writing on Instagram, “Well world, looks like Mike Lane’s tapping back in.” He added the film’s official title: “Magic Mike’s Last Dance. Written by Reid Carolin. Directed by Steven Soderbergh.”
