The script was written by and was inspired by real-life story of Tatum's early career as a male stripper. Tatum plays the title character, "who schools a young dancer (Pettyfer) in how to hustle on and off the stage. It's a wild summer of dancing, partying, and women. The inspiration was Channing's own experiences as a stripper when he was 19." McConaughey plays Dallas, a former stripper who owns the club where the two perform. Tatum and Nick Wechsler are producing with Gregory Jacobs and Carolin.
