Channing Tatum is ready to hit the stage again and take it off in another "Magic Mike" installment titled "Magic Mike's Last Dance," reported IndieWire.

Steven Soderbergh, who directed the first "Magic Mike" but not the sequel, will be in the director's chair once again with the film planning to be exclusively released to HBO Max.

"Is there anybody on screen more charismatic and appealing than Magic Mike?" Toby Emmerich, chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, said in a statement about the film's third installment. "We're thrilled to be back in business with Channing, Steven and their creative team to bring back Magic Mike's wonderful combination of dance, drama, romance, and humor."

Once thought to be a guilty pleasure, the "Magic Mike" films have grossed nearly $300 million worldwide and spawned a successful stage show known as "Magic Mike Live" in the process.

"As soon as I saw what Channing, Reid, and the 'Magic Mike' choreographic team did with the live show, I said we have to make another movie. Mike Lane's dream of connecting people through dance must be realized," Soderbergh said.

Tatum agreed, "There are no words for how excited I am to blow the doors off of the world of 'Magic Mike' with Steven, Greg, Reid, and the amazing people at HBO Max. The stripperverse will never be the same."
