According to reports, actor Channing Tatum will star as Marvel's "X-Men" mutant character 'Gambit' in his own spin-off feature, written by Josh Zetumer ("RoboCop"), produced by Tatum and Free Association partner Reid Carolin, The Donners Company’s Lauren Shuler Donner and Genre Films’ Simon Kinberg:
The mutant 'Gambit', originally a thief, was created for Marvel Comics by writer Chris Claremont and illustrator Jim Lee, debuting in Marvel's "Uncanny X-Men Annual" #14 (1990), followed by "Uncanny X-Men" #266 (August 1990).

He is also incredibly knowledgeable and skilled in card-throwing, hand-to-hand combat and the use of a bō. He is fiercely proud of his Louisiana heritage, and speaks in a very thick Cajun accent.

It's no secret that Channing Tatum is working with Fox Studios and X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner to develop a standalone Gambit film, and possibly be in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse, but there's been no confirmation of that.
The actor revealed in a previous interview that he would like to "change the superhero movie" with Gambit. Now, in recent interview with MTV the actor says that they are finding a writer and figuring things out. They are also looking to give fans a different and unique take on the character. So it sounds like things are definitely moving forward. He also hints at it being a smaller scale movie. He said,
“I don’t want to give too much away because we don’t know that much right now other than who Gambit is. We really do want to try our hardest to give something fresh. »

During the press rounds for "X-Men: Days of Future Past," producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed reports that actor Channing Tatum would take over the role of card-throwing Cajun mutant Remy LeBeau (Gambit) in the "X-Men" franchise. Tatum himself had used other interviews earlier in the year to express a keen interest in the role.
Now, out doing press for this weekend's animated feature "The Book of Life," Tatum himself offered MTV an update on how the proposed solo Gambit film is going. From the sounds of it, the project is still in early stages:
"We're finding a writer and sort of beating it out. We really do want to try our hardest to give something fresh. We're obviously going to go to the saving the world superhero movies eventually, but not for the first one.
We kind of want to introduce this character in a very different way, and when »

Back in May, producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed that Channing Tatum will star as the mystical, card-throwing Cajun mutant Remy LeBeau, a.k.a. Gambit, after the actor spent months campaigning for the role in various interviews. We also reported that the actor will first appear in X-Men: Apocalypse before his own stand-alone Gambit adventure. While doing press for The Book of Life, Channing Tatum offered an update on the movie, revealing that they are searching for a writer to give this character a unique origin story in what will be a smaller movie than we usually see in the X-Men franchise.

With Bryan Singer now officially signed on as director, X-Men: Apocalypse is picking up steam ahead of production early in the new year, and producer Simon Kinberg has been speaking to Collider about the latest chapter of Fox’s X-Men franchise, describing it as the “close of a trilogy” for the cast of X-Men: First Class. Here’s what he had to say:
“I will say that [X-Men: Apocalypse] is definitely the close of a trilogy for those First Class characters, which isn’t to say we won’t see them in future movies, hopefully we will, but it’s a completion of an arc for them. I think that the friendship between Erik and Charles, which has always been so integral to the franchise, is something we’re continuing to explore and hopefully deepen with Apocalypse. And the relationship between Beast and Mystique is a really interesting one that we didn »

Producer Simon Kinberg isn't being shy about what we can expect to see in X-Men: Apocalypse. He's already teased potential new characters and revealed how certain continuity issues caused by the shifting of X-Men: Days of Future Past's timeline will be addressed. Speaking with Collider, he now reveals that this next Mutant sequel will return to the strained relationship between Beast (Nicholas Hoult) and Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence). He also touches on how the 80s setting will be utilized, an era that spawned a lot of today's older X-Men fans who grew up with the comic. And most importantly, he reveals that this will be a rather 'fun' outing for our often tortured heroes.

While Bryan Singer was believed to be directing X-Men: Apocalypse early on in the pre-production process, a number of sexual allegations filed against the filmmaker behind X-Men, X2: X-Men United and X-Men: Days of Future Past made his participation unclear. It has now been confirmed today by 20th Century Fox that Bryan Singer will be back to helm this latest addition in the Marvel mutant franchise.

We've been waiting and watching and wondering if Marvel's wonderfully weird Deadpool would ever get his due. After years of rumors, various stages of limbo (including test footage, which you can see below), and an appearance in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," it seems the weird "mercenary with a mouth" is getting his own feature-length film. Ryan Reynolds played Deadpool in "Origins," so it's expected, though not yet officially announced, that he'll reprise the role for the film.
Tim Miller, who has plenty of special effects experience under his belt, will be making his directorial debut, under the close watch of producers Kevin Feige and Lauren Shuler Donner. According to EW, the screenplay will probably be the one written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick that was floating around a while ago. Reese and Wernick co-wrote "Zombieland," and also worked together on "G.I. Joe: Retaliation." They've also done a few go-rounds on a script for "Venom, »

X-Men: Days of Future Past grossed $744M worldwide, making it the highest grossing Cbm of the year as well as the highest grossing X-Men film ever. What makes this feat even more impressive is that it achieved this without being released in IMAX. This makes the upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release of the film one of the more anticipated releases in recent memory. Now, a lot has been said about its upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release from whether or not we'll be getting an extended cut to what deleted scenes will be included, and more. We've already heard from Producer Lauren Shuler Donner, who said that an extended/director's cut of the film is coming and we've also heard from Fox's Executive Vice President of Marketing Communications James Finn, who said it will release in 2015. Now, thanks to Superhero Hype forum user Retroman & X-Men Films , we have some new information regarding the »
