The actress will portray Amber, the love interest of Channing Tatum's title character. The story centers on Alex Pettyfer's character, a male stripper who is mentored on and off the stage by Magic Mike. The project is loosely based on Channing Tatum's days as a 19-year-old male stripper in Tampa. Olivia Munn is only the second female to join the cast, alongside Riley Keough, who plays Alex Pettyfer's girlfriend.
Steven Soderbergh is directing Magic Mike from a screenplay by Reid Carolin. Matthew Bomer and Joe Manganiello also play male strippers, while Matthew McConaughey portrays the strip club owner and Gabriel Iglesias plays the club DJ.
Production is scheduled to start on September 14.
