It sure worked for The Full Monty – taking the story of male strippers from the screen to the Broadway musical stage. So why not the new kid on the runaway, Magic Mike?

Apparently, that's the plan already in the works by Channing Tatum, whose own story loosely forms the basis for the new movie, and his screenwriter and producing partner Reid Carolin.

Furthermore, the movie's Alex Pettyfer, 22, says he would "absolutely" do the Broadway version. "I think we should all do the opening night," he tells USA Today about his fellow manscaped costars costars Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer.





"We are working on it as a Broadway show, which would be a different story," Carolin tells the newspaper. "More of a romp, more of a fun night out at a club with a story."

He adds, "I'm almost more excited about that than the movie because I think it's the perfect thing for women to go see on Broadway, to be participants in the show."

The recipient of positive early reviews, the movie Magic Mike, directed by Oscar-winner Steven Soderbergh, opens Friday. Tatum plays Magic Mike Martingano, the tutor for Pettyfer's character of Adam, schooling the young newcomer in the ways of stripping, living and womanizing.
