It didn't take too long for the men of Magic Mike to start stripping down.

Costars Channing Tatum, 31, and Alex Pettyfer, 21, each doffed their tops for their first day on the set of the movie in L.A. Tuesday.

Based on Tatum's real-life experiences as an exotic dancer, the film tells the story of an older performer (Tatum) who shows a younger dancer (Pettyfer) the tricks of the trade.

"It's sexy, funny and shocking," director Steven Soderbergh has said of the project. "We're using Saturday Night Fever as our model, so hopefully we're on the right track."

Magic Mike boasts an all-star cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello, Matt Bomer, Olivia Munn and Riley Keough.
