“Channing Tatum call me bro! I haven’t heard anything from you! the actor was ecstatic after being asked if he would be part of the third installment.
“I don’t know,” he added when asked about his involvement. ‘I should have read [the script] first. It was a hell of a lot of fun doing the first one.”

Tatum, whose early stripping experience when he was just 18 inspired his first film, told People this week that he wants his new film to be the “Super Bowl of Stripping.”
“I want to dance in a way that we could never dance in the other two films, because we had to be honest with the reality of this world, and this is not the best dance.”
He added that the final dance from XXL he performed with Steven “tWitch” Boss would have been an example of the ambitious dance he was hoping to capture on camera, though it doesn’t have much in common with the real thing. man stripping life.
“In the real world, there has never been anything that I would undress, even almost as good as this. [last dance],’ he explained. “We are already breaking the rules of that, the reality of that world. I want to have professional dancers [from all over]Russian ballet dancers, I want to go for it and create a whole new genre of this form.”

McConaughey continued his conversation with Variety to talk about a recent Super Bowl commercial he created and directed for Salesforce.
He admitted that he wanted to “confuse” viewers by making them think at first that this was a sequel to his sci-fi blockbuster Interstellar.
The clip begins with the Dallas Buyers Club star floating through space in a suit similar to the one he wore in Christopher Nolan’s critically acclaimed film that grossed over $700 million worldwide.
Gotcha! McConaughey told Variety it’s no coincidence that his latest Super Bowl ad could fool fans into expecting an Interstellar sequel.
“At first I wanted it to be wrong,” McConaughey said of the ad, which premiered during the Olympics and will air during the Super Bowl.
“I wanted it to open up and look very serious and in space, because we are going to knock the ground out from under you,” he admitted. “Some people think this is going to be an Interstellar 2 trailer.
After some serious narration from him about the “new frontier,” the actor shrugs and the camera pulls back to show him standing on a hot air balloon that is floating incredibly through space.
Suddenly, the action shifts to the San Francisco skyline, where his hot air balloon hovers more comfortably over the skyscrapers.

“This is not the time to run. It’s time to get busy,” he says through narration. “It’s time to plant more trees. It’s time to build trust. It’s time to make room for all of us. So while others look at the metaverse and Mars, let’s stay here and rebuild ours,” he says as the farmers hard at work in the field.
“Yes, it’s time to pave our way. Because the new frontier? This is not rocket science. It’s right here.’
McConaughey ends his commercial by climbing out of his balloon and releasing the rope tying him to the Earth.
Making changes: “Now is not the time to run. It’s time to get busy,” he says through narration. “It’s time to plant more trees,” he adds, hovering over the farmers.
Focusing on the home: “Yes, it’s time to make our way. Because the new frontier? This is not rocket science. It’s right here,” he says, letting his balloon float away without him.
The actor said he hopes his ad will encourage some of his fans to make their world a better place.
“I hope they say, ‘Listen to what McConaughey and Salesforce are saying, is there a problem in society today. Our relationship with each other, our relationship with the environment is fragile, man. lack of justice. We lack sustainable innovation. We have no values.”
“And you know what, a lot of us want to run away and get the hell out of here or maybe look the other way,” he continued. ‘You know? They are right! But we can look back at our earthly problems, look them in the eye, and say, “Let’s get through this and rebuild what we’ve got. We are not ready to give up.” I hope business sees this and is encouraged to make a commitment to making life here on Earth more fair, equitable and sustainable.”
Despite his digging into Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s metaverse and Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk’s interest in space exploration, McConaughey has made it clear he hasn’t heard anything from either of these billionaires.
He clarified that the campaign was not “anti-tech” or “anti-innovative in space”.

“I am looking for recovery companies and products that can help rebuild America and humanity,” he said, noting that he has become more selective in recent years. “Especially in the last eight years, I would say that I have given up on quite a few things that maybe 15 years ago I would have done.”
After the interviewer noted that his value statements sounded like they could be made by a politician, McConaughey said his thoughts went “beyond politics”.
“These traits and their values can be acquired and I think they should be politicians, but values go beyond politics,” he said. “It’s not about left or right. It’s more important than that. These values are an aspiration that we as a people can realize and we, America, can achieve.”
