Salma Hayek Replaces Thandiwe Newton On ‘Magic Mike’s Last Dance’ after bust-up– MarkMeets

Salma Hayek has joined Channing Tatum in Warner Bros. Magic Mike’s The Last Dance, replacing Thandiwe Newton who had to step away from the project for personal reasons.

“Thandiwe Newton has made the difficult decision to step away from the production of Warner Bros. Pictures’ Magic Mike’s Last Dance to deal with family matters,”a Warner Bros. spokesperson said in a statement.

The film is currently in production in London and will premiere on HBO Max.

Steven Soderbergh, who directed the first film, returns to direct this pic with Reid Carolyn writing the script. Gregory Jacobs, who directed the 2015 hit Magic Mike XXL, returns to produce along with Carolin, Nick Wechsler and Peter Kiernan.

The first two films combined to gross nearly $300 million worldwide and, in 2017, the franchise spawned the successful stage show Magic Mike Live. Plot details for this pic are unknown at this time.

Hayek was most recently seen in Marvel’s Eternals.
