Demi Moore is getting ready to stretch herself, playing a cougar who seduces the young male lead in “Magic Mike”.
Alex Pettyfer stars as a newcomer to the worked of exotic dancing who is tempted by an older woman (Moore). The story is based on Channing Tatum’s brief stint stripping at the age of 19 before finding fame as a model and actor.
A source tells E! via Star Pulse that “Demi met with (director) Steven Soderbergh at Soho House in West Hollywood last week to discuss the film, and she loved it. She’s so excited about the role.”
Tatum himself plays the titular ‘Mike’ who serves as a mentor to the younger stripper. Shooting is slated to kick off in Los Angeles in August.
