‘Magic Mike’: New Cast Members Confirmed

Jessica Biel and Riley Keough to star as strippers in upcoming the upcoming comedy

 

Director Steven Soderbergh, known for directing  Oceans Eleven through Thirteen and Traffic, has a new project in the midst for 2012: a stripper comedy. Although details about the plot are still under wraps, the film will star Channing Tatum as Mike Martingano, Alex Pettyfer as “The Kid,” and Matthew McConaughey as Dallas. Jessica Biel has also recently joined the team and will play Martingano’s lover – a stripper named Amber.

Model Riley Keough has also signed on to play Pettyfer’s love interest, another stripper named Zora. This role was supposedly saved for Lindsay Lohan, but Soderbergh reported to E!Online that he decided “not to go there.”

…Can we blame him?

Riley, the new face of Dior, who also appears in the following recent or upcoming films: The Runaways, The Good Doctor, Kiss of the Damned, Yellow, and Jack and Dianne; will certainly bring an interesting dynamic to the cast. The film, set in a strip club, will focus on the complex lives of those who take their clothes off for money – both male and female. Yes, ladies. This means Matt, Channing, and Alex, will also be stripping.

The film will begin shooting in Tampa, Florida in September 2011.
