White House Down 1

Channing Tatum doesn’t act like he’s famous. Even on the set of his upcoming movie, White House Down, the star of G.I. Joe, Magic Mike, Step Up and 21 Jump Street is humble, down to Earth and honest about his career. We spoke to the actor in Montreal last September. He said, after he next few movies, he wasn’t going to make another movie until he could direct himself, though a list of great directors could change his mind. He said he was so impressed with director Roland Emmerich that he’ll make movies with him forever.

Tatum also talked about Magic Mike 2, working with Steven Soderbergh and doing his own stunts – all of his own stunts. Tatum also discussed how growing up watching Eighties action films influenced his desire to make this movie, which opens June 28, and what it was about the script that really sold him.

Or at least that’s the latest rumor going around about Magic Mike 2, based on a short interview the duo gave a German film website.

As for what the next movie will actually entail, the pair reveal that the plotline could see the self-described “cock-rocking kings of Tampa” hitting the road. Read their comments after the jump.

If you enjoyed Steven Soderbergh‘s Magic Mike for its more thoughtful dramatic aspects, you may think the film doesn’t really need a sequel. But if, on the other hand, you loved it for the flashy striptease numbers, perhaps you’ll be interested to know that a “bigger” (no pun intended, I think) sequel is already in the works. Star Channing Tatum spilled the beans during a recent Twitter interview. Read his comments after the jump.
