Channing Tatum Is Gambit In Upcoming ‘X-Men’ Film


Hollywood hunk Channing Tatum has been confirmed to join the X-Men universe as Gambit in a new upcoming film.

The Magic Mike star has spoken passionately in the past about his desire to play Remy LeBeau on the big screen and now producer Lauren Shuler Donner has revealed the 34-year-old is set to take on the role.

She tells, “I’ll develop it with him,” and insists the actor is perfect for the part, adding, “He’s a rogue. Channing, he’s a rascal, just like Remy LeBeau. And he can handle the action. We all know that. And he’s got a really good heart.

“He’s a southerner too. He’s not from New Orleans, but he is a southerner. He understands that world and, you know, Gambit loves New Orleans.”

Tatum actually owns a bar in the city.

John Carter star Taylor Kitsch previously portrayed LeBeau/Gambit in X: Men Origins: Wolverine. 

Are you excited to see what the talented Tatum has to offer to the role of Gambit?
