BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Although Rupert Wyatt’s departure from Gambit was originally attributed to a scheduling conflict, it seems other issues may actually be to blame.
Apparently, Gambit has 99 problems, but Rogue ain’t one — which totally blows. Following the news that Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt dropped out of the solo Gambit film for Fox, Anna Paquin has come out to confirm that she will not be reprising her role in the film. Talk about a missed opportunity.
There are many things to consider when thinking about a possible director to make Gambit. It’s a filmmaker who should know how to shoot interesting and kinetic action, but you also want somebody who could find the proper tone to get the right amount of drama.
The Channing Tatum-fronted superhero flick Gambit can't catch a break. The latest hurdle it has to clear is a significant loss, too, as the director has reportedly jumped ship.
Although it’s been confirmed that all X-Men films and spinoffs will take place in the same world, it’s been unclear how much these characters will be interacting with each other, but now we’ve learned there will be official crossovers in the future.
From an outsider's perspective, it seems like Rupert Wyatt's Gambit really needs to get a move-on, as it should be starting production soon but has yet to put some key pieces in place. The good news is that today it seems that the project may soon be getting one step closer towards being a reality.
We’ve only had two solo X-Men movies so far — X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine, one of which was a major disaster. However, one X-Men actor isn’t convinced the solo X-Men movies are always viable.
With the release of Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four in theaters, the comic book movie season for 2015 has officially come to a close. It’s been a very interesting year for the genre.
Now that Channing Tatum is officially locked in to play the titular role of Rupert Wyatt's Gambit, the production can start looking at actresses who can play opposite the star as the female lead. According to new reports, the film has not yet zeroed in on exactly who should get the part, but it seems as though three frontrunners have emerged.
For the last couple of years Tatum has been pushing hard to make a Gambit movie happen, with himself in the role of the cajun mutant. Then, this past week there was a media explosion over reports that he was on his way off the project.
A new report indicates that Channing Tatum may drop out of playing Gambit due to his deal with 20th Century Fox falling apart. If Tatum does leave the film, these are the five actors we think could to the longtime X-Men character justice on the big screen.
Director Rupert Wyatt's Gambit movie may be in serious trouble now that it's been revealed that Channing Tatum could possibly leave the project. Whether or not he goes, however, the film will continue, and that means adding to the cast. Apparently while dealing with the Tatum situation, Fox is working to cast the movie's female lead, and it appears that Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol star Lea Seydoux is a candidate for the part.
When 20th Century Fox first announced that they would be making a Gambit movie, it was largely driven by the presence of Channing Tatum - who has been campaigning for the lead role in the project for a while now. Unfortunately, it now looks as though it might all be crumbling apart, as new reports are saying that the actor is making plans to leave the production.
With the First Class-led X-Men trilogy coming to an end, Fox is now investing in the future of its superhero franchise…literally. Deadpool is already revving up for release, a New Mutants adaptation is somewhere down the line, and a Fantastic Four-X-Men crossover is under discussion, but Gambit will cost an arm and leg for the studio to make.
With a release date set for October of next year, Rupert Wyatt’s Gambit movie is expected to go into production very soon… but at this point it seems like the film still has a lot of stuff to take care of in pre-production. Channing Tatum is currently the only actor attached to the project, and it’s extremely unlikely that 20th Century Fox plans to keep it that way.
We all saw that incredible superhero selfie, right? And amid the chaos was Channing Tatum. The Gambit star came out at the last minute to join the photo, though he wasn’t featured on stage in any of the early panel presentations. So, what was he doing there?
If you thought the famous Ellen DeGeneres Oscar selfie was incredible, then you’ll love the superhero version of that. To cap off the big Hall H panel for 20th Century Fox at San Diego Comic-Con, all of the Fox superheroes — including the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, Wolverine and, yes, Gambit — congregated next to Marvel creator Stan Lee for one epic selfie to stand the test of time.
The start of San Diego Comic-Con festivities means that we will soon be seeing big presentations from some of the biggest comic book movies coming out in the next year – and we’re super pumped for what’s in store.
Before Channing Tatum was cast as Gambit, Taylor Kitsch originated the role in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Here’s how Kitsch feels about the Magic Mike XXL star taking over the role for the spinoff next year.
Channing Tatum’s next goal for Gambit is to nail down the character’s infamous accent, and he’s already formulated a plan to make sure the X-Men card shark’s voice sounds authentic.
