'Magic Mike's Last Dance' will get a theatrical release.

The movie - starring Channing Tatum and Salma Hayek - was originally set to go straight to streaming on HBO Max but Warner Bros has now decided on a theatrical release from February 10, 2023.

Meanwhile, director Steven Soderbergh recently revealed that he wanted it to premiere on the big screen.

He said: "We're talking about it.

"It's certainly hard to argue that this isn't a movie that's best seen in a theatre, because we have the data. People, primarily women, were going in packs, in large groups, to see the 'Magic Mike' movies."

Steven revealed that 'Magic Mike's Last Dance' is likely to be the final film in the series but suggested that spin-offs could be developed with characters other than Channing's Mike Lane.

He explained: "I think there are other things to be done within what I consider now to be a larger 'Magic Mike' universe.

The film's production hit a rocky patch when Thandiwe Newton was replaced by Hayek after shooting began but Steven said the actress has been a capable member of the cast.

Soderbergh said: "I hadn't seen Salma in 22 years after she did a little bit part in 'Traffic'.
