Magic Mike‘s sequel director Greg Jacobs just revealed that Matthew McConaughey, aka Dallas, will not return for Magic Mike XXL.
“What am I allowed to say?” Greg told IndieWire. “It’s road trip movie and put it this way, it’s different enough that once you see it you’ll understand why we made a sequel. No one will be accusing us of making the same movie twice.”
Rumor had it that Matthew would not be returning, but now it’s official.
The film is set to open in theaters on July 1, 2015.
