We are in the era of hit franchises. Be it Marvel movies, the new Harry Potter TV series, or the upcoming Fast and Furious movie Fast X – anything is possible nowadays. And now, thanks to George Clooney, we all have a surprising cinematic crossover to add to our wish lists.
During the TCM Classic Film Festival (via Entertainment Weekly), Clooney joked about a possible idea for another Ocean’s Eleven movie. In a stroke of genius, the star proposed that a new heist should get a spicy element and head to the strip club with a Magic Mike crossover.
Considering how both Ocean’s Eleven and Magic Mike were directed by Steven Soderbergh, the crossover does make sense. And, personally, it sounds like we have potentially one of the best comedy movies ever to hit the big screen on our hands if the two combined for a new project.
“Ocean’s Mike?” Clooney reportedly joked about the potential title while discussing the possibility of revisiting the Ocean’s franchise. While Clooney made the suggestion in good humour, going so far as to swing his microphone like a stripper swinging their own goods, again, we are all for this pitch.
The 2000s movie Ocean’s Eleven has already spawned sequels and spin-offs with Ocean’s Twelve and the all-female-led cast Ocean’s 8. And now that Soderbergh finished off the Magic Mike trilogy with the new movie Magic Mike’s Last Dance, the next flick is more than possible.
However, saying that, it has yet to be confirmed. Currently, Soderbergh is busy working on the TV series Full Circle, while George Clooney is set to star in the thriller movie Wolves.
While we wait on more news, here is our list of the best movies of all time. Or if you are after more stripper action, here is our Magic Mike’s Last Dance review and why we believe that Men shouldn’t let toxic masculinity stop them from loving Magic Mike.
