  • Salma Hayek is costarring in the upcoming third "Magic Mike" movie with Channing Tatum.

  • The actress told People that fans at home will have their expectations exceeded by Tatum's skills.

  • "You haven't seen anything," she said of Tatum. "His dance skills — he just got better."

Channing Tatum's famous career trajectory brought him from male stripper to blockbuster actor, and now he's returning to the dance stage once more for "Magic Mike 3."

Salma Hayek joined the film's cast earlier this year and tells People magazine that Tatum's dance talents will exceed expectations for existing "Magic Mike" fans.

"If you thought he could dance [before], you are going to realize you haven't seen anything," Hayek told People. "His dance skills — he just got better."

Those who have followed Tatum's movie career from the beginning know that movies like "Step Up" had already displayed the actor's ability on a dancefloor, but it's been a while since we've seen him in action. Now, the third "Magic Mike" movie will show Tatum back in the role of Mike Lane — a professional male stripper living in Florida.

The first "Magic Mike" movie was loosely based on Tatum's own experience as a teenager living in Tampa.

"I was an 18-year-old kid thrown in with these crazy men who had been stripping for a long time, kind of losing themselves," the actor told the Tampa Bay Times in 2012. "I probably lost myself for a little while."

After the success of the first movie, a sequel was born. "Magic Mike XXL," explored how the men of the stripper world in America could use their talents with an "unapologetically feminist" approach to the art of sexy dancing.

Tatum and Hayek will costar in a third "Magic Mike" movie, this time taking place across the pond in London, England. Titled "Magic Mike's Last Dance," the movie will presumably serve as the final installment of a trilogy based around Tatum's titular character.

According to People, Hayek recently wrapped filming on "Magic Mike's Last Dance," and enjoyed the experience.

"Look, I'm not going to complain," she said. "On an average day, I had to work with 12 strippers. Not one, not two—12. It was still hard work."
