BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
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.
Channing Tatum has been working to make a Gambit movie happen for quite some time. Now that those pesky minor details,like directors, have been sorted out things appear to be moving forward. There’s a lot of work for Tatum to do in order to create the character that he want’s Gambit to be.
The X-Men franchise’s upcoming Gambit stand-alone has spent many months with some major question marks surrounding it. The film has seemingly spent the last few months making very little forward movement in development, but that changed in a big way this week.
Before Channing Tatum tackles his own Gambit adventure, word on the street — and word from Tatum himself — was that the card-slinging X-Man would first appear in next summer’s X-Men: Apocalypse. The actor recently updated us on the matter, however, and things aren’t looking good on that front.
In order to prevent all of the upcoming comic book movies from feeling stale and repetitive, some of the projects are definitely going to have to present material that comes from outside the box and changes the game - and it's for this exact reason that Channing Tatum believes his upcoming X-Men spin-off movie Gambit is important and needs to happen.
After months of pursuit, the search for a director to helm the X-Men film Gambit is finally over. 20th Century Fox has picked this individual for the project.
Channing Tatum has been trying to get a Gambit movie made for quite some time. He’s ready to star. He has a script. He has producers. Now, if only he could find a director.
The X-Men movie series has typically stuck to the task of tackling immense threats to the world. While that’s all well and good for those team dynamic films, it’s starting to sound as if Channing Tatum wants to break that mold a bit with his upcoming solo shot in next year’s Gambit. Could we be seeing a different take on the origin film?
New Mutants are now in the mix, but what are the titles that the X-Men franchise can use to compete with both Marvel and DC in the years between now and 2019 and 2020? We have a few ideas...
Channing Tatum just dropped a hint about whether or not we'll see Gambit show up in X-Men: Apocalypse.
