Studio registers domain names after writer and star start talking.
A sequel to the male stripper movie Magic Mike is rumored to be in the works.
Here’s some fuel to add to the fire: Warner Brothers has registered a few domain names related to a possible sequel.
It could be that Warner Bros is just defensively registering these domain names after the movie’s writer and star starting talking about what they’d do in a sequel. Which brings up a good point: why don’t studios just register domains for sequels when they launch the initial movie? They can spend less than a hundred bucks and make sure no one squats on the domains.
Had Warner Bros. done that, they wouldn’t be dealing with something they are now: a New Jersey man registered MagicMike2.com back in July.
