His lengthy history with filmmakers like Soderbergh and talent for identifying successful properties continued unabated with such critical and audience favorites as John Hillcoat's "The Road" (2009) and Soderbergh's box office smash "Magic Mike" (2012), as well as its 2015 sequel, "Magic Mike XXL" (2015)
