Channing Tatum to become Gambit after all?

channing_tatum_gambit_movie

There was worry for those supporting Channing Tatum as Gambit, since there was a report saying that the actor might drop out of the project. Now we have The Hollywood Reporter confirming that Fox and Tatum have closed the deal. The site did say that the negotiations almost fell apart because of hisĀ multi-film contract being unresolved.

We may be seeing the last of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, so that meant that Fox was looking to bring another popular character and actor to lead the onslaught of X-Men related films.

Another problem included theĀ “backend compensation” being a “sticking point”, where Tatum was warning about leaving the project.

Rupert Wyatt will be directing the solo Gambit film. The film will hit theaters on October 7, 2016.

Are you still excited about Tatum starring as Gambit?
