'Magic Mike 2': Channing All Over Jamie Foxx's Tatum?

Since Steven Soderbergh seems to be serious about that whole "I'm outta the directing game" beeswax, Channing Tatum is now eyeballing "Magic Mike 2" for his directorial debut.

And given how close, personal and sometimes even weird he and Jamie Foxx got during all their "White House Down"ing, he totally wants to see his generally dapper co-star bare some buns for the big screen in it. Get More »

Steven Sodebergh Explains Why He Backed Spike Lee's Kickstarter

Getty Images Getty Images

Last week, Spike Lee shocked the film community by going onto Kickstarter to raise money for his next film. So far, the service has been used more often for things like the big screen resurrection of beloved cult TV series "Veronica Mars" and Zack Braff's next movie; both projects that spoke to young, impassioned, internet-savvy fans who were more excited about the prospect of returning something they loved to former glory than making a quality movie. Spike Lee is arguably the most serious director to use the platform, and he's asking for a fraction of what "Veronica Mars" wanted... and he still hasn't gotten it yet. ("Veronica Mars" scored $2 million in the first ten hours.)

Still, hope is not lost, especially when fellow heavyweight director Steven Soderbergh casually pledges $10,000 to the campaign and then writes a really awesome explanation of his pledge. Get More »

The spirit of a Kickstarter campaign, like the one Spike Lee unveiled on Monday, is to raise funds from like-minded strangers with hopes of achieving a common goal. In Lee's case, however, he's also getting help from a friend: director Steven Soderbergh.

Channing Tatum Might Direct 'Magic Mike 2,'...With Steven Soderbergh's Help

Channing Tatum and Matthew Bomer in "Magic Mike" Warner Bros.

Nobody quite expected "Magic Mike," last year's working class drama based loosely around star Channing Tatum's time as a male stripper, to be quite as unbelievably awesome as it was. But it really was amazing — a drama that informed the passing populace about a niche subculture in the same way "Saturday Night Fever" or "American Gigolo" did before it, directed beautifully by Steven Soderbergh and anchored by a performance that secured Tatum's place as one of America's greatest treasures, along with the Hoover Dam and the idea to combine chicken and waffles on one delicious plate.

While original director Steven Soderbergh is seeking (temporary, we hope) retirement, that doesn't mean plans aren't still running ahead on the sequel. Tatum, while talking up this week's explosi-o-rama "White House Down" with the Hollywood Reporter, discussed the possibility of him directing the sequel and what the plot would be. Get More »

'Behind the Candelabra' Trailer Teases Life with Liberace

Movies — er, "cinema" — might not matter so much to director Steven Soderbergh these days, but judging by this new trailer for "Behind the Candelabra," a film he's been putting together for years and which will finally debut on HBO next month, he's still quite cozy in the director's chair.

The cable network released a first trailer for the film, which adapts the memoir of Liberace's lover-slash-chauffeur Scott Thorson, "My Life with Liberace," and it's absolutely gorgeous. Get More »

Flowchart: Which Steven Soderbergh Movie Is Right For You?

Steven Soderbergh has been one of the most prolific filmmakers of all time. He's also one of the most predictable, balancing out big studio projects like "Ocean's Eleven" and Oscar darlings like "Traffic" with low-budget personal experiments like "Bubble" and "The Girlfriend Experience." He's even got a knack for in-between audience-pleasers like "Magic Mike" and "The Informant!"

With a filmography this eclectic, it may be hard to figure out what Steven Soderbergh movie is right for you (if you had to, you know, pick just one). Upon the release of what appears to be his last theatrical film, "Side Effects," we've conjured a handy-dandy flowchart that may help you find that perfect Soderbergh fit.

Channing Tatum Eyes Acting Break For 2013

Channing Tatum is looking to quit this whole acting business ... for a year, anyway.

The "Magic Mike" star will take a break from being in front of the camera to concentrate on being behind the camera in 2013, according to an interview with Inside Movies. Tatum is looking to take the time to focus on his directorial debut with his production partner, Reid Carolin.

"[Reid and I] have about three to four ideas that we love that are all in the hopper. By the end of next year, we're going to shut things down and write the first thing that we're going to direct," said Tatum, "We’re going to be like, all right, no more acting parts for a minute, let's take a few and really get caring about that section of our career."
