Channing Tatum Confirmed for Gambit Role in 'X-Men' Spinoff Movie!
Channing Tatum has officially been confirmed to play the fan favorite character Gambit in a future X-Men spin off movie by producer Lauren Shuler Donner.
“He’s a rogue, Channing, he’s a rascal, just like Remy LeBeau,” Lauren told Total Film on the red carpet about Channing as Gambit at the X-Men: Days of Future past London premiere. “He can handle the action, as we know, and he’s got a real good heart, I know him personally.”
“He’ll be great for Gambit, and he’s a southerner too, he understands that world, and you know Gambit loves New Orleans,” Lauren added.
Channing had expressed an interest in playing the character in the past.
X-Men: Days of Future Past opens on May 23. The next movie, X-Men: Apocalypse, is expected in May of 2016. No release date has been set for Channing‘s Gambit film.
