There is an award being given to Thandiwe Newton! As part of the 2022 Deauville American Film Festival in Deauville, France, on Tuesday, September 6, the 49-year-old Thandiwe Newton, who has won four Emmy Awards, was honoured with the Deauville Talent Award.
The award was presented to Thandiwe, who was wearing a black lace dress, after the film festival premiere of her new film, God’s Country, was screened during the festival.
Thandiwe Debuted Her New Heart-Shaped Tattoo
On the Promenade des Planches, Thandiwe had released her new heart-shaped tattoo earlier that day. She wore a pink suit to unveil the dedicated beach locker room at the Promenade des Planches where she revealed her new tattoo.
For months now, Thandiwe has been a subject of attention, but she has never been a part of the Deauville Film Festival. Thandiwe decided to drop out of the upcoming Magic Mike film earlier this year to devote more time to his personal life.
Newton Leaves’ Magic Mike’s Last Dance’
On Magic Mike’s Last Dance, there have been some changes in the cast. In the upcoming third movie of the franchise, Thandiwe Newton will be replaced with Salma Hayek opposite Channing Tatum as opposed to Thandiwe Newton.
According to reports, the actress was reportedly set to play the female lead in the movie that is currently being produced in London. However, for personal reasons, she withdrew from the project. Salma has been cast in the film to replace Thandiwe, who stepped down from the project a few months ago. During the movie’s filming last month, Thandiwe was seen dancing around the set as she walked around the set.
As the Magic Mike franchise began in 2012 with the release of Magic Mike, which took the world by storm, it grew into a vast empire of stage shows, sequels, and an on-stage musical show. As a result of a $7 million budget, the film grossed more than $167 million against a budget of $167 million. At the time of writing the screenplay, Channing Tatum was still a young stripper living in Florida at the time, which inspired part of the screenplay.
There was also a sequel released in 2015 after the first film’s massive success, which was hugely popular with audiences and critics. There was a story that revolved around a retired stripper (Channing Tatum) who was convinced that he could rejoin the stripping world and appeal to the masses once again with the antics of a strip club in Tampa. There has been an increase in popularity of the series, and it has been announced that there will be a third instalment in the series, Magic Mike’s Last Dance.
