Matthew McConaughey: Magic Mike 2 is on hold

Feb 1 2013, 4:13am CST | by

Matthew McConaughey admits 'Magic Mike 2' has been halted by Channing Tatum's impending fatherhood.

The 43-year-old actor revealed the sequel to last year's comedy about a group of male strippers is still in the works, but they won't begin seriously discussing it until producer and leading man Channing's first child with his wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum is born.

He told MTV News: ''I haven't talked to Channing [Tatum] in about a month. I know it's something that's legitimately brewing.

''But I think he's taking some time off too because has about to be a new dad, and good for him to do that too cause he's been cranking it out for a while.''

Matthew hopes his kooky alter ego Dallas will be a big part of the sequel, but will only return on the condition that he doesn't become a caricature and Matthew can have a say in his storyline.

He added: ''In the right way [I would come back]. It would be so much fun, but I would only be able to do to revisit Dallas if I really go 'OK, that's what he would be doing.'

''And Dallas can't become like all of a sudden obviously comedic. I'd have to keep him the same tone. He's committed.''

'Step Up' stud Channing recently announced Steven Soderbergh had pulled out of directing the follow-up and he thought assistant director Greg Jacobs was likely to be picking up the reins.

He mused: ''You know, we don't know if it's going to happen yet. We want it to happen. We'd love it to be a road-trip movie, but Soderbergh's not directing - like done, done. He's like actually gone.''
