'Beastly' star joins Channing Tatum stripper movie

Apparently Brit bad boy Alex Pettyfer's recent interview in which he bashes Hollywood hasn't hurt his career. The "Beastly" star has just been cast as a young stripper in the upcoming movie "Magic Mike," according to Deadline.

As Marquee previously reported, the film, directed by Steven Soderbergh ("Ocean's Eleven," "Traffic") will star Channing Tatum, whose real-life experience as a 19-year-old exotic dancer at a Tampa club served as inspiration for the story.

In "Magic Mike," Tatum will play a veteran dancer who teaches a newcomer (Pettyfer) how to hustle both on and off the stage. The movie promises to be packed with pecs, partying and women.

"When Channing talked to me about this, I thought it was one of the best ideas I'd ever heard for a movie," Soderbergh has said. "It's sexy, funny and shocking. We're using 'Saturday Night Fever' as our model, so hopefully we're on the right track."

    Hollywood will make a movie out of any topic if they think it will make them money. Shoot these days they do it even if it doesnt make money.
