On 21 October 2022, the two stars shared a still from the upcoming film "Magic Mike's Last Dance" showing Salma Hayek caressing Channing Tatum's six-pack with her eyes closed. "A taste of what's to come in cinemas this Valentine's Day weekend," Salma Hayek wrote about the photo on Instagram. The third instalment of the male stripper franchise hits cinemas on 10 February 2023. "You won't want to miss #MagicMikesLastDance," she wrote, adding a fire emoji before repeating her caption in Spanish.
Channing Tatum instead wrote under his photo: "All good things begin in Miami."
This is what the third part of "Magic Mike" with Channing Tatum and Selma Hayek will be about
In April 2022, it was announced that Salma Hayek would replace "Westworld" star Thandiwe Newton as the female lead in the final film in the "Magic Mike" universe. "Thandiwe Newton has made the difficult decision to withdraw from production on Warner Bros. Pictures' 'Magic Mike's Last Dance' to attend to family matters," a studio spokesperson told Variety at the time.
According to Channing Tatum, who spoke to "Variety" in February, the character played by Salma Hayek is "really strong, almost stronger than Mike," adding, "We've never shown a traditional love story, and this is not a traditional love story."
Will Magic Mike 3 be about an empowering story?
Around the same time, Channing Tatum told People Magazine, "I want to have an equal, if not more central, female character opposite Mike. I'm not saying I want her to take over the movie, but I want 'Magic Mike' to really be about a woman's experience. And just not about Mike's experiences, because the past parts have been so much about the experiences of Mike and the boys. But these films are very, very 'female-forward'. At least that's our intention."
Screenwriter Reid Carolin told Variety, "It's really about a woman who gets stuck in a terrible strip show, like the Chippendales, and then realises, 'What the hell am I doing here?'" He continued, "And then suddenly Magic Mike comes along. She gets involved with him and ends up asking herself, 'What do I really want?'"
For her part, Salma Hayek seemed to be having a good time during the shoot: "I'm not complaining. On an average day I had to work with twelve strippers. Not one, not two: twelve. It was still hard work," she told People in August. "It's a strong love story, a strong female character, from beginning to end. How lucky I am."
