When “Magic Mike” arrived in theaters last June, it was a rousing success. The Steven Soderbergh-directed male stripper film starring Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey raked in over $167 million worldwide and has subsequently spawned a franchise. Already, there is a "Magic Mike 2" in the works, as reported last July, with producer/actor Tatum declaring that they want to “make it bigger.” However, weeks before a sequel was ever announced, there had been reports that the guys behind "Magic Mike" -- screenwriter Reid Carolin with Soderbergh and Tatum producing -- were also working on turning the movie into a Broadway musical. Well, for those who have been eagerly anticipating this, here’s another reason to get jacked up about it.

When “Magic Mike” arrived in theaters last June, it was a rousing success. The Steven Soderbergh-directed male stripper film starring Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey raked in over $167 million worldwide and has subsequently spawned a franchise. Already, there is a "Magic Mike 2" in the works, as reported last July, with producer/actor Tatum declaring that they want to “make it bigger.” However, weeks before a sequel was ever announced, there had been reports that the guys behind "Magic Mike" -- screenwriter Reid Carolin with Soderbergh and Tatum producing -- were also working on turning the movie into a Broadway musical. Well, for those who have been eagerly anticipating this, here’s another reason to get jacked up about it.

Vulture caught up with producer Gregory Jacobs at a “Side Effects” premiere this past weekend and he’s confirmed what has been on some people’s minds regarding the musical. “Oh, you definitely might get a lap dance. Absolutely. That’s happening for sure,” said Jacobs. He also promised that there will soon be more details regarding the beefcake musical which last we heard was aiming to take this stage this summer.

We're not sure what the last Broadway show was where the cast pulling groin muscles was a serious potential hazard each night, but it's gotta be better than working on "Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark." The only question that remains is: will you be sitting in the front row?
