Channing Tatum Working on Evel Knievel Biopic, 'Magic Mike' Sequel

July 12, 2012


This guy is getting pretty desperate to keep his chest exposed.

Joe 2 presence Channing Tatum is in talks to star in and produce a film based on Life of Evel, the 2008 Evel Knievel biography from Stuart Barker. Tatum's Iron Horse Entertainment partner Reid Carolin--last responsible for fleshing out the actor's stripping anecdotes for Magic Mike--will write the script about the late stuntman famous for his 433 broken bones and willingness to drive motorcycles over things so that we didn't have to.

And on the subject of Magic Mike, also we're getting another one of those. With the male stripper film already grossing $70 million over its $7 million budget, Glamour (via) logically asked Tatum if a sequel was a possibility, to which he replied:

"Yes, yes and yes! We're working on the concept now. We want to flip the script and make it bigger."

This time Magic Mike is being tried for murder--in EUROPE! Or maybe they'll figure out a way to work some more male stripping in. We'll see. In the meantime, go save the White House, Channing Tatum.
