Los Angeles: Superstar Matthew McConaughey has been confirmed that he will not be a part of 'Magic Mike XXL'.
Director Gregory Jacobs said the 'Dallas' star will be absent from the upcoming second movie, reports suggest.
"The film will be very different. What am I allowed to say? It's 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. No one will be accusing us of making the same movie twice," Jacobs added.
The reboot will hit theatres on July 1, 2015.
Channing Tatum penned the script with Reid Carolin, the writer of the first film. He is also back on the lead role, joining original cast like Matthew Bomer and Joe Manganiello.
