Magic Mike XXL” director, Gregory Jacobs confirmed the disappointing news on Wednesday night, Indie Wire revealed.

Meanwhile, fans are now wondering if Matthew McConaughey has decided to sit this one out on the account of his recent Oscar win for “Dallas Buyers Club,” thinking that it may undo some of the image and credibility that he’s earned from his huge awards season.
