“Magic Mike’s Last Dance” director Steven Soderbergh has revealed that the franchise finale will end with a 30-minute dance sequence.
Channing Tatum is reprising his role as Mike Lane and Soderbergh returns to the helm with a script from Reid Carolin, who also wrote the first two films. Salma Hayek is also set to star in the new movie.
“We wanted to blow the dancing up in a big way,” Soderbergh told Empire in an interview published Wednesday. “We have this dance number with Channing and Salma [Hayek] right up front. And then the last 30-plus minutes of the movie are just this giant dance sequence.”
Slated for a Valentine’s Day weekend release in 2023, Mike Lane’s romance with a monied older woman encourages him to bring his act to London where he must find new dancers and construct a show from the ground up.
Ayub Khan Din, Jemelia George, Juliette Motamed, and Vicki Pepperdine also star.
The conclusion to the series builds on the plot set by the first two films, “Magic Mike” (2012) and “Magic Mike XXL” (2015).
