Thandiwe Newton denies being fired from Magic Mike 3 after ‘vicious’ Channing Tatum row about Will Smith
The Independent says Thandiwe Newton has denied a report claiming she was dropped from Magic Mike 3 after rowing with Channing Tatum.
The actor was set to appear in the new film, titled Magic Mike’s Last Dance, but exited the project after 11 days.
“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 on Wednesday (14 April).
Magic Mike’s Last Dance
The British actress Thandiwe Newton denies being fired from Magic Mike 3 – titled Magic Mike’s Last Dance – because of the ‘vicious’ Channing Tatum row about Will Smith’s slap.
The spokesperson has now also called reports of a feud with Tatum, who not only stars in but produces the film, “completely inaccurate”.
According to The Sun, a “vicious” row broke out on the film’s London set over the incident that saw Will Smith slap Chris Rock at the Oscars on 27 March.
