Channing Tatum to drop out of playing Gambit?


If you were looking forward to Channing Tatum portraying Gambit, the card-carrying mutant, then I’ve got some bad news for you. We’ve got a report from TheWrap saying that the deal involvingĀ the actor and Rupert Wyatt’s Gambit film is collapsing, which might lead to him dropping off the project completely.

“Something is up” between Tatum and Fox, the source says.

The site says that Fox studios has been searching for an actress to co-star opposite Tatum, but now it looks like they’ll have to search for a new actor.

This report is definitely shocking, since fans saw Tatum at San Diego Comic-Con to help promote himself as Gambit. He was even seen helping Stan Lee walk off the stage. It’s also surprising, since Tatum has expressed that he’s a big fan of Gambit.

Do you guys want Tatum to stay on the project? Let us know in the comments below.

Gambit is scheduled to hit theaters on October 7, 2016.
