Magic Mike Recast

In an oddly related story, Thandiwe Newton has been jettisoned from the latest Magic Mike flick.  Apparently Thandiwe and Channing Tatum had been at odds throughout the first month of shooting in London.  Last week, the fighting escalated, and onlookers claim it had something to do with the January 6th insurrection.  While we don’t know the specifics, we do know that Thandiwe ran off the set and never returned.  She had an ally in director Steven Soderbergh.  Alas, Chan could not be swayed, and put out the call to recast.  Bing, bang, boom – Thandiwe’s out and Salma Hayek’s in.  Thandiwe’s reps say she left the project for “personal reasons”.
