Channing Tatum is set to star in Gambit, a film following a mutant named Gambit who has the power to charge up items and turn them into kinetic energy. Penning the script is Josh Zetumer (RoboCop). Tatum will be producing with his Free Association partner Reid Carolin, The Donners Company’s Lauren Shuler Donner, and Genre Films’ Simon Kinberg.

The film will be based on a treatment by comic book writer Chris Claremont, who created Gambit along with artist Jim Lee back in the ’90s.

Gambit, also known as Remy LeBeau, was also featured in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. He was played by actor Taylor Kitsch (John Carter).
