In an interview with Total Films, Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed that Channing Tatum will play the Cajun mutant Remy Lebeau aka Gambit.

She states:

Well you know he’s a rogue, Channing. He’s a rascal, just like Remy LeBeau, and he can handle the action, we all know that. He’s got a really good heart, because I know him personally, I did a movie with him. So I think he’ll be great, he’ll be great for Gambit, and he’s a southerner too, he’s not from New Orleans but he is a southerner and he understands that world, and you know Gambit loves New Orleans.

Channing Tatum has been campaigning for this role since September and he had a meeting about playing an X-Men character in April. Also, Bryan Singer always wanted to bring in Gambit for his future movie, X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016. That would be interesting because in the comic books Gambit was one of the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse, with him being Death in that group.

Now that we know he will be Gambit in the future X-Men films, are you excited about this news? Let us know.
