Joe Manganiello has revealed he can't wait to start filming the 'Magic Mike' sequel this autumn.
Joe Manganiello claims 'Magic Mike 2' will begin shooting this autumn.
The actor let slip that he would soon be reprising his role as a male stripper alongside Channing Tatum, Matthew Mcconaughey and Matt Bomer in the upcoming comedy during an interview with Collider.com.
He told the website: ''Yeah, it's gonna happen this fall. I think they're going to announce it soon. It's crazy. I didn't think that would be my first franchise. I never thought that would ever be the direction of my career.
''But that said, it's just proof that I don't know best, all the time. It was the most fun I've ever had, and I can't wait to get back in and mix it up with those guys.''
The first film was a worldwide hit, grossing $167 million globally against a budget of just $7 million.
With director Steven Soderbergh dropping out of shooting the sequel and Tatum busy with other projects, production was thought to be a long way off.
Rumours have been rife that Hollywood hunk Tatum is now planning to co-direct with his producing and writing partner Reid Carolin.
The actor also recently shared a picture of himself gearing up to work on the sequel's screenplay.
