Channing Tatum confirmed to play Gambit in X-Men spin-off movie


Channing Tatum will officially be taking on the role of Gambit in an X-Men spin-off movie. Producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed the news at the London premiere of the latest instalment, X-Men: Days Of Future Past on Monday.

‘It’s Channing, yes,’ Lauren told Total Film when asked if she had him in mind for the part. ‘I’ll develop it with him.’

While he may be missing the superpowers, Lauren said:

it is Channing’s other similarities to the character that make him so perfect for it.

‘He’s a rogue, Channing. He’s a rascal just like Remy LeBeau,’ she said, referring to Gambit’s alter ego.

‘And he can handle the action, we all know that. And he’s got a really good heart, because I know him personally, I did a movie with him.’
