Channing Tatum to play Gambit in a solo movie?


Well here’s something you didn’t expect to read today. The producer of the X-Men films, Lauren Shuler Donner, has revealed to Empire that Channing Tatum is on board to play Remy LeBeau in a solo film should Fox opt to make the film.

She tells Empire, “I’m dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum. That doesn’t have to be a great big movie. It’s a thief in New Orleans, it’s a whole different story. He’s on board, and I have to get the studio on board. How can anyone resist Channing? He’s such a sweetheart.”

Channing Tatum, a New Orleans native, has previously stated that he’d love to play Gambit should he go into the superhero genre and he may get his chance here. Like it or not, Channing Tatum is one of the most bankable leading men in Hollywood right now, which is why it’s not a surprise that Donner is looking to Tatum to play Cajun mutant.
