Now that 20th Century Fox has found a director for its Gambit movie in Rupert Wyatt, the studio can starting moving forward with its third X-Men movie of 2016. Digital Spy caught up with star Channing Tatum and producer Reid Carolin during the Magic Mike Xxl press tour this week, during which Tatum was asked about the film’s progress, including his accent for the Cajun mutant.
“It’s all being worked on at the moment. I’m from the south, so I know who to go to to find the accent. But I haven’t found ‘the guy’ yet, because generally that’s how I do accents. Like, I’ll find the person that I want to sound like and not just do a generic Cajun accent. So I haven’t found ‘the guy’ yet but the cards are always… they’re right there, actually.”

In an interview published Sunday with Screen Rant, Channing Tatum's writing-producing partner Reid Carolin revealed that the star actor is consulting the help (well, at least this once) of a real-life magician to prep for his upcoming Gambit role. "Last night, we were with my friend who I went to college with — this guy David Kwong, who is an incredible magician — and he was teaching Chan how to throw cards and do sleight of hand," Carolin recalled. Although Tatum is revving up that aspect of his character, Carolin noted that he didn't think Tatum had Gambit's Cajun accent ready (booooo). Production for the Gambit movie is slated to begin in the fall in New Orleans, with Rupert Wyatt at the helm. "The script is really good," Carolin added. "To be honest, I don’t watch big movies for pleasure a lot, but this script convinced me that we »

Carolin has produced a number of Tatum's movies in the past and will also work on the star's first foray into the superhero world. The producer revealed that filming for Gambit will start in the fall, and claimed that the movie's script was a big factor in getting him on board. "Yeah, that we’ll shoot that in the fall, we’ll probably start that in late October/November in New Orleans. Rupert Wyatt is our director, he’s pretty cool. I think the script is really good. To be honest, I don’t watch big movies for pleasure a lot, but this script convinced me that we should be making this movie, so…" He was also asked about Channing Tatum's Cajun accent, »
Channing Tatum has been talking about a lot of movies recently. On the promotional trail for Magic Mike Xxl, he updated on his still-gestating Ghostbusters reboot, and has now teased his vision for his upcoming Gambit movie, which is due to hit screens in 2016. While Taylor Kitsch played the role in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 20th Century Fox replaced him with Tatum for the Gambit solo film – which will be written by Joshua Zetumer, from a treatment by character creator Chris Claremont. Speaking to Comic Book Resources, Tatum revealed that he is working closely with director Rupert Wyatt to realize a particular version of the story.
“We’re so early in it. I really have some things in mind, but who knows – it’s pretty fluid at this point. I do believe that [director] Rupert [Wyatt] and I have the exact same vision of what we want to do. We want it to be different. »

While promoting Magic Mike Xxl, actor Channing Tatum spoke with Cbr about his progress on the solo Gambit film from 20th Century Fox. Tatum cautioned that it's still early in the development process but he and director Rupert Wyatt are both keyed in on making the film stand out from other superhero films. Said Tatum, "We're so early in it. I really have some things in mind, but who knows -- it's pretty fluid at this point. I do believe that [director] Rupert [Wyatt] and I have the exact same vision of what we want to do. We want it to be different. I think Gambit is a really specific sort of character to not do some of these other things that some of the other superheroes kind of have to do. It's who they are. I think his character lends itself to doing something maybe slightly different. " Wrapping up the »
He replied: "No ma'am, or sir. I definitely will not." So that's a no then.
It was a long shot given X-Men: Apocalypse appears to be set in the 1980s judging by cast costume pictures.
Tatum said: "We finally found someone (Rupert Wyatt) that I really do believe wants to make [the movie]. I just really think because Gambit is not the most popular or the biggest hero, I think there's a really unique opportunity."
Written by Josh Zetumer, Gambit is due for UK release on October 7, 2016.

The X-Men franchise.s upcoming Gambit stand-alone has spent many months with some major question marks surrounding it. Initially revealed as a passion project of producer Lauren Schuler Donner, who wanted to make the movie starring Channing Tatum, the film officially got a release date back in January. but seemingly spent the last few months making very little forward movement in development. That changed in a big way this week, though, as it was officially revealed that the project actually has a director now. It was on Monday that it was revealed by trade sources that Rupert Wyatt . director of Rise of the Planet of the Apes and last year.s The Gambler remake . has signed on to be the man in charge of making the Gambit movie. This is obviously a big step forward for the project, though we still have some big questions regarding what.s going on »
Channing Tatum Reveals More Info on Gambit and Says He Won’t Appear in X-Men: Apocalypse. We have known for a while that Gambit will make his solo debut on screen. However, we won’t be seeing him in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse according to Channing Tatum.
While doing an Ama at Reddit to promote his new film Magic Mike Xxl, a fan asked if Tatum’s Gambit would be appearing in upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. “No ma’am, or sir. I definitely will not,” the actor replied when asked about his character possibly appearing in Bryan Singer’s film.
It will be the second standalone character. And I just really think because Gambit is »

Channing Tatum is speaking out some more about his future as the title character in the upcoming X-Men spinoff Gambit. During a Reddit Ama, Tatum discussed his chances of showing up in the next X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse, and what he thinks of the announcement that Rupert Wyatt would be directing Gambit. Unfortunately for fans of the actor, you're probably not going to see him as the Cajun mutant until next Fall. First off, when asked if he'd be appearing as Gambit in X-Men: Apocalypse during the Ama, Tatum's response was short and sweet, "No ma'am, or sir. I definitely will not." I'm really happy about this news. Apocalypse takes place in the 80s and having Tatum's Gambit show up during that time would limit the storyline possibilities of his solo franchise in the future. It's time we take these characters out of the past and make sure the X-Men »

While the 1980s setting for X-Men: Apocalypse made it unlikely that Channing Tatum’s Gambit might be introduced during the movie, we still had hope in our hearts that some sort of crossover would be possible. Tatum himself, however, has shot the idea down.Answering questions during a lively, funny, and at times honest (looking at you, Jupiter Ascending) Reddit Ask Me Anything session, Tatum tackled the subject of whether his take on the roguish mutant gambler and card-chucker might show up in Bryan Singer’s latest X-adventure. “No ma'am, or sir. I definitely will not,” was his quickly typed reply.But he did at least expound on his hopes for the film now it has a director. "We finally found someone (Rupert Wyatt) that I really do believe wants to make [the movie]," he wrote. "I just really think because Gambit is not the most popular or the biggest hero, I »
Channing Tatum will suit up as fan-favorite mutant Gambit for his own solo film in late 2016, but rumors have long been swirling that we’d see the Ragin’ Cajun a bit sooner than that. Introducing the character via a cameo in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse (despite its 1980s setting) to set up or tease the upcoming spin-off film would make sense from a marketing standpoint – considering it hits theaters five months earlier – but Tatum himself has announced that it’s not in the cards (no pun intended).
During an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit on Wednesday, Tatum was asked directly if he’d show up as Remy LeBeau in Apocalypse, and gave a firm denial:
“No ma’am, or sir. I definitely will not.”
So, I guess that solves that, unless of course he’s playing coy or has been sworn to secrecy. There’s always the chance »

Recently we discovered that the solo Gambit film starring Channing Tatum is moving forward with Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt. But before he tackles his own adventure, word on the street . and word from Tatum himself . was that the card-slinging X-Man would first appear in next summer.s X-Men: Apocalypse. The actor recently updated us on the matter, however, and things aren.t looking good on that front. Tatum participated in a Reddit Ama to support his campaign for the Runa Foundation. If fans donated to support this organization, which looks to establish clinics and research facilities dedicated to Amazonian plant medicine, they would be in the running to attend the Magic Mike Xxl premiere with Tatum and the boys. During the chat, the actor was asked whether Gambit would pop up in X-Men: Apocalypse, to which he replied, No ma'am, or sir. I definitely »
Back when word first reached us that Fox was interested in getting Channing Tatum on board as Gambit, producer Lauren Shuler Donner suggested that X-Men: Apocalypse would be the perfect place to introduce him. Once Tatum was officially on board, that still seemed to be the plan of action - but recently the actor stated that a solo outing might be a better option than having the Cajun card-shark debut with the other mutants in a team-based movie. Now, during his Reddit Ama, he finally confirmed that we definitely won't be seeing a Gambit cameo in Apocalypse. The other day we found out that Rise of The Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt would be helming the Gambit movie, and Tatum also comments on that, before once again expressing their intent to do something different with this character. Are you glad we won't be seeing Gambit in X-Men: Apocalypse »
