According to Steven Soderbergh’s under the radar Twitter feed, "Magic Mike XXL" is officially shooting:
We noted an open casting call was going down this weekend, and now it seems like the good times are officially rolling. And while Soderbergh is continuing to hold to his "retirement" as a film director, he’s more than just a little involved: He’ll be serving as director of photography, camera operator and film editor.
"I want to be there, but I don’t want to be the director," he told GQ this summer. "I want to be a part of it. I want to be in the band, but I just don’t want to be the frontman this time."
"Magic Mike XXL" comes out next summer.
