X-Men Producer Gunning For Channing Tatum as Gambit


(CelebNMusic247-News) X-Men Producer Gunning For Channing Tatum as Gambit

An X-Men: Days of Future Past producer has said that she wants Channing Tatum for a solo super hero mutant Gambit film.

Gambit is one of our favorite mutants, and back in September we reported that Channing revealed that he wanted to take on the X-Men role.

Now Lauren Shuler Donner has revealed that the 21 Jump Street actor is on board to play the Cajun mutant.

Donner told Empire:

“I’m dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum.” 

“That doesn’t have to be a great big movie. It’s a thief in New Orleans, it’s a whole different story.

“He’s on board, and I have to get the studio on board. How can anyone resist Channing? He’s such a sweetheart.”

Tatum has previous indicated that he would be interested in playing the character.

ALthough we loved Taylor Kitsch (John Carter, Battleship) cameo as Gambit in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine was poorly received.

Channing Tatum can be seen this year in 22 Jump StreetJupiter Ascending and Foxcatcher.

X-Men: Days of Future Past will arrive in UK cinemas on May 22 and in the US on May 23.
