Channing Tatum, Steven Soderbergh and writer Reid Carolin are teaming up again for another Magic Mike movie.

Tatum will reprise his stripper character Mike Lane for the franchise's third film, Magic Mike's Last Dance, which Soderbergh will direct from a Carolin script.

The first two Magic Mike films grossed almost $300 million , and the franchise has spawned a successful stage show, Magic Mike Live, which launched in Las Vegas, and will tour North America next year.

The live shows have also inspired the upcoming HBO Max reality competition series Finding Magic Mike, which premieres on 16 December.

The films are based on Tatum's life as a stripper before his acting career took off.
