Thandiwe Newton Denied Rumors About Being Fired

A report published by The Sun claimed that Thandiwe Newton and Channing Tatum got into a bit of heat. The feud between the two actors has been about Will Smith and Chris Rock’s drama at the Oscars, claims the Sun. Since then sources near Thandiwe have confirmed that the rumors are untrue and inaccurate. They have said that the actress left the film’s set after 11 days of shooting done in London because of some ‘personal family matters’.

Salma Hayek Is Taking Over Thandiwe’s Role

According to Newton’s sources:

Thandiwe Newton has made the difficult decision to step away from the production of Warner Bro. Pictures’ Magic Mike’s Last Dance to deal with family matters.

Furthermore, Channing Tatum, just like before, is a producer of the film. That is why it was not hard for fans to believe in the rumors. According to a previous source near Tatum, he had said:

I am not working with her anymore.

However, all of this has been debunked. Salma Hayek has replaced Thandiwe Newton in Magic Mike’s Last Dance. Channing Tatum is playing the male stripper in the movie. He described the film as ‘very, very female forward’. He stated:

I want to have equal if not even more centralized female character for Mike to really play off of and almost to…I don’t want to say (to have her) take the baton. But really let the movie be about a female’s experience and not Mike’s experience.
