MAGIC MIKE Director Steven Soderbergh Tweets from Set of Sequel: 'It's ON!'

Director Steven Soderbergh, who helmed the original hit film MAGIC MIKE, shared a photo of the clapperboard from the upcoming sequel on Twitter last Sunday, along with the exclamation: "It's ON!". Check it out at left.

Are you excited for Part II of the male stripper flick?

The sequel to Warner Bros.Pictures' MAGIC MIKE, (reportedly titled Magic MikeXXL) will theaters July 3, 2015. Greg Jacobs, who served as assistant director to the original film's helmer Steven Soderbergh, will direct.

Set in the world of male strippers, the original MAGIC MIKE starred Channing Tatum in a story inspired by his real life. The film follows Mike (Tatum) as he takes a young dancer called The Kid (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money.

The original film MAGIC MIKE, hit theaters in 2012 and earned a whopping $114 million at the box office. As BroadwayWorld previously reported, Reid Carolin, screenwriter for the new film, is currently working on a 'spin-off' of the movie, which he plans to bring to Broadway as a new musical. "We are working on it as a Broadway show, which would be a different story, more of a romp, more of a fun night out at a club with a story," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "I'm almost more excited about that than the movie because I think it's the perfect thing for women to go see on Broadway, to be participants in the show."

Steven Soderbergh's MAGIC MIKE starred Tatum alongside Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello and centered on a rebellious 19-year-old kid (Pettyfer) looking for independence from his family. He meets Magic Mike(Tatum), who seems like the perfect role model- he's got a nice car, a nice apartment, and a seemingly endless supply of women. He also happens to be a male stripper.
