Tyler Perry Chooses Thandie Newton As Mariah Carey’s Replacement in Upcoming Film
I can’t even pretend that I’m not excited about this. The beautiful and talented Thandie Newton will be replacing Mariah Carey in Tyler Perry’s upcoming film, For Colored Girls. Carey dropped out of the film last month amidst pregnancy rumors.
Tyler is still in the dark about why Carey dropped out of the film. He said, “I was told that we got a call, saying that even though our deal was done, she had been advised by her doctor not to do the film. I said, ‘What? You know I want a doctor’s note, don’t you?.” But he also says that he knows Carey is a professional and whatever her reasons are, he’s sure they’re justified.
