“It’s a road trip movie and put it this way, it’s different enough that once you see it you’ll understand why we made a sequel,” he told IndieWire. “No one will be accusing us of making the same movie twice.”

New cast members include Amber Heard and Andie MacDowell. Even though Soderbergh won’t be back in the director’s chair, he will be the director of cinematography, a camera operator and an editor. This is a role reversal for the duo as Jacobs has been Soderbergh’s First AD and producer for over a decade.

Magic Mike XXL” opens in theaters on July 1, 2015.
