The Wrap reports Heard will join Tatum and original cast members Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello who are also reprising their role for the sequel. Reports also suggest that Jada Jada Pinkett Smith has signed on to play the owner of a strip club, while Andie MacDowell has also been rumoured for an unspecified role.

But one cast member who wont be back for round two is the now Oscar winning Matthew Mcconaughey, who played strip-club owner Dallas in the original. Since winning the Oscar for Dallas Buyers Club, McConaughey has been more in demand than ever and it seems he's just to busy to reprise his role.
