Daily Recap: 'Magic Mike' Going Broadway, Kevin Nash as Brutus in 'Catching Fire'?

If you think Magic Mike is a one and done summer blockbuster, think again. Channing Tatum and producing partner Reid Carolin are looking to bring the stripper story to Broadway. "We're working on it as a Broadway show, which would be a different story," Carolin said. "More of a romp, more of a fun night out at the club with a story." Alex Pettyfer, who co-stars in the film, says he would absolutely do the Broadway show. He added, "I think we should all do the opening night." [USA Today]
