The sexiest moments from 'Magic Mike' trailer!
Get ready to put on your disappointed face. Matthew McConaughey had a lead role in the first hit stripper film alongside Channing Tatum, but director Greg Jacobs has confirmed that Matthew won’t be back for another run in the Magic Mike sequel.

He broke the news to Indiewire, and also dropped some hints about what the sequel will involve, putting paid to any rumors that he was attempting to cash in on making the same film twice.

Greg said: “What am I allowed to say? It’s a road trip movie and put it this way, it’s different enough that once you see it you’ll understand why we made a sequel. No one will be accusing us of making the same movie twice.”

Channing, Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello will be returning for XXL, but it hasn’t been confirmed yet whether any of the other cast will be back.

Magic Mike XXL opens in theaters on July 1, 2015.
