Be prepared, ladies: Channing Tatum is already planning Magic Mike's big sequel.

Though a Broadway play of the Steven Soderbergh-helmed movie is already in the works, the 32-year-old actor says he wants to see his stripper persona grace the silver screen one more time.

"You know, we are talking a lot about it. We have a story, and it is really ridiculous and fun," he told German site Filmstarts (as reprinted by IndieWire) of the follow-up flick. "It's a road movie sort of thing, where a bunch of strippers get back together."

"It's more of a broad comedy," he continued.

So who is Tatum eying for Magic Mike 2?

One thing is for sure: Tatum desperately wants Soderbergh to return -- though the director's plans for an indefinite hiatus may axe Tatum's chance to re-enlist the Oscar winner.

"We really want to, but Steven Soderbergh really want to retire," Tatum said. "We will undoubtedly make the Broadway version first."

Magic Mike, which grossed $113 million since its June premiere, is a semi-biographical depiction of Tatum's past as a male stripper. The actor was also a producer on the film.

Since Soderbergh may not return for the sequel, Tatum is looking elsewhere -- including himself.

"Gregory Jacobs [Soderbergh's assistant director] can make the film," he suggested. "[Or producers] Reid Carolin and me."
