Prepare your eyes, ladies— Channing Tatum is stripping down for another Magic Mike movie!

"We want to do the sequel,” Channing said about the summer hit, which made $154 million worldwide. “It's too good of a movie and the characters are so crazy that we want to go for it. We feel like we did the little indie version last time, and for the next one, we want to up the stakes a little, maybe go even farther."

And it’s safe to say America will be more than thrilled for the sexy cast to “go even farther.”

The 32-year-old played an experienced stripper in the film based loosely on his earlier years, and was joined by fellow Hollywood hotties Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer and Olivia Munn.

But will Matthew, who recently lost about 60 lbs. for his role in Dallas Buyers Club, be buff enough to return to the stage as veteran stripper "Dallas" when the time comes? We sure hope so.

"It would be so much fun, but I would only be able to revisit Dallas if I…keep him the same tone," Matthew said of a reprise. And he’s doing his part to get back into shape after his weight loss.

“During the movie, he was lifting less weight and on a strict diet,” says an insider close to the 43-year-old star, who normally weighs about 185 pounds. “Now he’s doing a more rigorous workout with a trainer and eating more, but still healthy.”

We’re glad! A sequel wouldn’t be the same without Dallas!
