Matthew McConaughey will strip for Steven Soderbergh and Channing Tatum

Matthew McConaughey's seemingly perpetual shirtlessness will be on screens again soon, courtesy of filmmaker Steven Soderbergh.

With MAGIC MIKE, Soderbergh will dive into the world of male strippers along with stars Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer. The story is loosely based on Tatum's own early days grinding for dollars in the banana hammock, although (dizzyingly) Tatum will play the older exotic dancer of the title, who teaches the young Tatum (played by Pettyfer) how to hustle.

McConaughey will play the retired (but undoubtedly still often bare-chested) stripper who owns the club where the thong-wearing Tatums strut for bucks. He'll also appear soon in the shockingly non-romcoms MUD and THE PAPERBOY, each also refreshingly free of Kate Hudson.

Meanwhile, Soderbergh (who recently loaned his skills to THE HUNGER GAMES) still has at least two other projects -- LIBERACE and THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. -- he's considering before his much-publicized yet probably unlikely retirement from directing.

Extra Tidbit: In case you missed it, Tatum is mystifyingly under consideration for THE CROW reboot.

I always thought McConaughey was a great actor who never quite got the credit he deserved. I guess the romantic-comedy route will do that to alot of actors. That being said. Some fabulous movies of his come to mind: Reign of Fire, Two for the Money, The Lincoln Lawyer, U-571 and We are Marshall. Hell I forgot about Frailty also.

Did McConaughey hit some kind of midlife crisis, wherein he realized he'd been making shit for a decade and decided to change pace?
If so, I'm all for it.

I am hip to this news for three reasons. 1 Matthew McConaughey is choosing good movie roles. Like to see him stay in drama if he feels the need to do comedy let it be raunchy for fucks sake. 2 Chaning Tatum is also choosing better roles and proving himself a decent actor. 3 Steven fucking Soderbergh. Nuff Said!
