16 hours ago | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Los Angeles, April 17: Actor Channing Tatum says he might star in an upcoming "X-Men" film as he's been meeting with producers about taking on the role of Gambit.

The "21 Jump Street" star has admitted he's been meeting with producers of the sci-fi films and has been discussing the possibility of taking on the role of Gambit, who he says he relates to because of their shared heritage, reports contactmusic.com.

"I met with Lauren Shuler Donner(producer of 'X-Men'). And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I've ever loved," he said.

"I mean I've loved them all, they're all great, but I guess from being down south - my dad's from Louisiana, I'm from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida - I don't know. I just relate. »

Channing Tatum is in talks to play a very famous X-Man

21 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It won’t be long now until the X-Men franchise sets a new record for onscreen mutants with Days of Future Past, a movie about future X-Men and past X-Men and perhaps even some present-day X-Men. Beyond lies Apocalypse and another Wolverine and a mysterious spin-off movie that might be X-Force, with the implicit promise that they’ll keep making X-Men movies until X-Men 2099 is considered a period piece. (Remember X-Men 2099? Skullfire!) But a new dark horse has entered the X-Men Spin-Off Showcase sweepstakes: Channing Tatum told MTV’s Josh Horowitz that he has spoken to X-producer Lauren Shuler Donner »

Channing Tatum confirms meet about X-Men spin-off, Gambit

15 April 2014 10:47 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Simon Brew 16 Apr 2014 - 06:47

Channing Tatum's interest in playing Gambit is no surprise. That he's had a meeting about playing the role in the X-Men spin-off, though...

Just days after one of the producers of the assorted X-Men films -Laura Shuler Donner - revealed that individual spin-off movies were now actively being pursued by 20th Century Fox, the identity of one of them potentially becomes clearer.

Shuler Donner had said that Gambit was one of the potential spin-offs that were being looked at, and at the MTV Movie Awards over the weekend, it turns out that Channing Tatum restated his interest in the role. In fact, more than that, he revealed he's already met Shuler Donner about it.

Chatting to MTV, Tatum said that "I met with Lauren Shuler Donner. And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved. I mean I’ve loved them all, »

Channing Tatum says he's talked Gambit with long-time X-Men producer

15 April 2014 7:29 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) White House Down star Channing Tatum revealed last fall that he would love to play Gambit, scoring an enthusiastic endorsement from not only X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner — “I’m dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum” — but also the blessing of Taylor Kitsch, who portrayed the character in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". But what are the odds we could actually see Tatum as smooth-talking New Orleans mutant Remy LeBeau? Pretty decent, it seems. “I met with Lauren Shuler Donner, and I would love it,” he told MTV backstage at the MTV Movie Awards. “Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved. I mean, I’ve loved them all, they’re all great, but I guess just being from being down South – my dad’s from Louisiana, I’m from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida – I don’t know, I just related to him.

Channing Tatum Confirms Talks to Play Gambit in X-Men Film

15 April 2014 7:06 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Channing Tatum has been talking about wanting to play Gambit in an "X-Men" movie for years. And just recently "X-Men" producer Lauren Shuler Donner revealed that she would love to make a Gambit film with Tatum. Now, while promoting "22 Jump Street," Tatum confirmed that he met with Donner about playing the superhero. "I met with Lauren Shuler Donner. And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I've ever loved," he said. "I mean I've loved them all, they're all great, but I guess from being down south, I just related to him." Tatum continued: "He's just kind of suave. He's the most un X-Men X-Man that's ever been in X-Men. Other than maybe Wolverine, who's like the anti-hero. He's a thief. He's not even a hero. He's kind of walking the line of grey. He loves women and drinking and smoking and stuff so he's just a »

Channing Tatum Really, Really, Really Wants to Play Gambit

15 April 2014 5:43 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Gambit is my favorite X-Men character by far, which is why I was particularly irritated with his portrayal in director Gavin Hood’s misguided superhero flick “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” Taylor Kitsch is probably a really nice guy, but he’s definitely not what I had in mind for Gambit. I keep hoping someone will do the character justice. Unfortunately, 20th Century Fox is keen on casting “Magic Mike” star Channing Tatum as Remy Etienne LeBeau in a standalone Gambit movie. Personally, I hate the idea. I Loathe It. I would love to see someone like Luke Evans tackle the role, though that’s probably not going to happen anytime soon. In fact, it seems Tatum is already in talks with producer Lauren Shuler Donner about the project. He recently told MTV News: I met with Lauren Shuler Donner. And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved. »

Channing Tatum has met with Fox over X-Men role as Gambit

15 April 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in September, Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street star Channing Tatum stated that he’d like to join Fox’s X-Men universe in the role of the Cajun card-throwing mutant Gambit, with longtime X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner subsequently stating that she is “dying” to do a Gambit movie with Tatum in the role. Well, it seems that both may get their wish, with Tatum revealing that he’s met with the producer about taking on the role previously played by Taylor Kitsch in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

“I met with Lauren Shuler Donner,” Tatum tells MTV. “And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved. I mean I’ve loved them all, they’re all great, but I guess from being down south – my dad’s from Louisiana, I’m from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida – I don’t know. I just related to him.

Channing Tatum Has Met With Producers About Playing Gambit In X-Men: Apocalypse

Channing Tatum revealed in a recent interview at the MTV Movie Awards that he has met with X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner about playing the mutant Gambit in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Though nothing is official just yet, the actor said that he would “die” to play the role.

Channing Tatum In Talks To Play X-Men’s Gambit

15 April 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Channing Tatum has held talks over playing Gambit in an X-Men movie.

The G.I. Joe and Magic Mike actor confirmed the news in an interview with MTV, claiming that he has already met with series producer Lauren Shuler Donner about the part.

The news comes after Tatum’s revelation last September that he was interested in playing Gambit in a future X-Men movie. Whether or not those comments back then came after he had already met with Donner or his revelation spurned interest in Fox casting the actor for a future movie, it’s unclear.

What we can almost say for certainty is that Tatum’s Gambit won’t be appearing in the new movie X-Men: Days Of Future Past, which opens next month. That film already has mutant character overload as it attempts to bridge two timelines together and it seems unlikely the movie could have kept a cameo »

Channing Tatum Met with Producers to Talk Gambit

15 April 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

In news that has the Internet in a tizzy, Channing Tatum has taken a meeting about playing Gambit, the drinking, gambling, thieving, womanizing X-Man from New Orleans. We know that producer Lauren Shuler Donner has been pushing for a standalone Gambit movie with Tatum in the lead for awhile, and Tatum has spoken publicly about how much he would love to play the character before. But with an official meeting, it sounds like things might be inching forward. 

Gambit is definitely a fan favorite, but he hasn’t been used in any of the X-Men movies yet. We aren’t counting X-Men Origins: Wolverine, in which he made a brief appearance played by Taylor Kitsch. I think we’ve all agreed to pretend that movie never happened, right? If the project moves forward, the plan is to make a standalone film about the character, and to make it on a »

Channing Tatum Could Be Gambit in 'X-Men' Spin-Off

15 April 2014 12:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Channing Tatum has conquered practically every genre there is, starring in hit comedies (21 Jump Street), action movies (White House Down), romantic dramas (Dear John) and even male-stripper dramas (Magic Mike). However, he has yet to appear in a superhero movie, and the actor has previously revealed he wants to play Gambit in a future X-Men movie. How close is this to actually happening? The actor recently spoke with MTV, where he revealed that he has actually met with X-Men: Days of Future Past producer Lauren Shuler Donner about playing the Cajun mutant.

"I met with Lauren Shuler Donner. And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I've ever loved. I mean I've loved them all, they're all great, but I guess from being down south - my dad's from Louisiana, I'm from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida - I don't know. I just related to him.

I [mean] I've loved them all, they're all great, [but] I don't know I guess just being from down south - my dad's from Louisiana and I'm from Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida - I don't know I just related to him... I hope it does [come together]. You never know, it's a weird industry. If the stars align, I would play it. I'm already working on the accent. »

'Magic Mike 2' Set for July 2015, Tatum Has Taken a Meeting to Play X-Men's Gambit

15 April 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Warner Bros. has set a July 3, 2015 release date for Magic Mike Xxl (aka Magic Mike 2) of which star and co-writer Channing Tatum recently discussed with MTV saying, "I think everyone's gonna be back, I think. Obviously no one's deals are done which is always kind of scary." As for the plot, it's just as before, the film is expected to be a road trip movie, but Tatum elaborated with MTV saying: This one will be a road trip movie. Without giving a lot away, we don't wanna make it a really serious, slice-of-life movie. We want to have reality in it, but we don't want to make it some dark drama. There was some darkness in the last one that I think surprised people and shocked people. This one, we want there to be a lot of conflict and a lot of struggle, but we also want there to be a sh*t-ton of fun. »

Channing Tatum as Gambit? It's Closer to Happening Than You Think

15 April 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

After hinting for several months that he's interested in the part, actor Channing Tatum has revealed that he's already met with producers about playing the mutant Gambit in an "X-Men" spin-off film, making the movie that much closer to a done deal.

In an interview with MTV, Tatum confirmed that he's spoken with Lauren Shuler Donner, who's produced every single one of Fox's "X-Men" films, about the possibility of playing Gambit, and added that he "would love it" if the film came together. The actor made waves last year when he talked about wanting to portray the mutant, and Donner said earlier this year that she was eyeing Tatum on the project.

Reiterating similar comments he made to Empire magazine last year, Tatum told MTV why he enjoys the character so much.
