Channing Tatum has been talking about wanting to play the X-Men character Gambit for years. Recently he got his chance to do just that in a movie that will be directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes). The Wrap is now reporting that even though the film has been getting ready to start filming to be ready for an October 7th, 2016 release, Tatum is now reconsidering being part o the project. While it's not clear what exactly is happening, it's starting to look like Wyatt and 20th Century Fox may have to find a replacement. Fans are already suggesting Taylor Kitsch, who played the superhero in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." »
There.s trouble in paradise for the upcoming X-Men spinoff Gambit. Yesterday it was reported that Channing Tatum may drop out of playing the eponymous character due to his deal with 20th Century Fox falling apart. Ever since Fox officially confirmed that Tatum would both star in and produce Gambit at the beginning of the year, things had been moving smoothly, from Rupert Wyatt being hired as director, to Tatum learning how to throw cards and practice a New Orleans accent, so this news was quite the surprise. Keep in mind that that Tatum hasn.t officially exited Gambit, but at the time of this writing, things aren't looking good. For the sake of argument, however, let.s assume Channing Tatum does decide to drop out. Whether Fox keeps their original October 2016 release date or decides to delay it, they will still have to find a replacement to portray Remy »
Weeks after he appeared at Comic-Con to promote the movie, Channing Tatum is now said to be close to dropping out of upcoming 2016 X-Men spinoff Gambit. We had all assumed that he was officially signed up to star, but we now know that isn’t actually the case. Rupert Wyatt is directing the movie, but

Gambit: Channing Tatum was confirmed more than a year ago to be starring in the titular role in Marvel's Gambit, but now an unconfirmed report claims that the actor's deal is "in jeopardy of falling apart and he is planning to exit" the project. Tatum has talked about his affection for the character, a Southern gambler and ladies' man, several times in the past, and it's not clear why he may be moving on. Rupert Wyatt is set to direct the movie, which is currently scheduled for release on October 7, 2016.

For the longest time Channing Tatum has been attached to Gambit, the X-Men spin-off about the mutant card spinner, willing it through a lengthy pre-production period. Well, that’s all looking to be for naught now as The Wrap are reporting that Tatum is planning to leave the project. How far along this situation is isn’t clear, but the studio is reported as saying “something is up”.
I really like Tatum, and have ever since 21 Jump Street showed he was a much smarter performer than his traditional macho looks suggested, so to see him leave what has become a passion project akin to Ryan Reynolds on Deadpool is a real shame.

Set to go in front of the cameras this October, Fox’s latest X-Men spin-off, Gambit, may have hit a sizeable snag, with The Wrap reporting that lead star Channing Tatum’s deal with the studio is close to falling apart, and he is planning to leave the project. While Fox haven’t made any formal statement, an industry insider has said that Tatum’s reps are still in talks with the studio, but acknowledged that 'something is up’. This is all very strange as the project, set for release October 7th 2016, had been trucking along at a clip as of late. Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ Rupert Wyatt had been announced as director, and a budget had been estimated at $150 million, above average for an X-Men spin-off (the last one, The Wolverine, was set at $120 million), which shows you the scale Fox was going for with the character, »

Some news just hitting from Hollywood. It looks like Channing Tatum may have quit the Gambit movie over at 20th Century Fox. This is still developing and should be marked up as rumour only at the moment, but it doesn’t look good.
TheWrap report the news of Tatum’s potential exit from the film, which we reported earlier in the week would shoot in Louisiana in October with a hugh $150 million budget.
One individual close to the project told TheWrap that Tatum’s reps are still in active discussions with the studio but acknowledged that “something is up.” The situation will have to be resolved quickly, as “Gambit” is slated for release on Oct. 7, 2016.

While nothing is official yet, The Wrap reports that the actor’s deal to star as the title character is certainly in “jeopardy,” although Fox is in the middle of negotiations to keep Tatum from leaving. The site even suggests that director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) will begin looking for actors to replace him shortly.
A casting call for the film was leaked online last Saturday, and it seemed that Gambit was moving along nicely, but there’s no denying that Tatum’s probable departure will be a major setback. Filming was supposed to start in October, and it still may, depending on how quickly Fox recovers.
Tatum was also set to produce the project with his partner Reid Carolin, »

The future of X-Men spin-off movie Gambit may be up in the air...
Tatum has been attached to the film since pretty much day one, and apparently, the likes of Lea Seydoux have been testing recently as Fox and director Rupert Wyatt look to cast his co-star in the movie. But The Wrap is now reporting that Tatum's deal for the movie "is in jeopardy of falling apart", and that the actor plans to quit the project.
Furthermore, whilst there's been no official statement on this, Channing Tatum's reps are quoted in the article as admitting "something is up". What the exact problem is, though, isn't clear.
It'd be a major shock if Tatum did walk away, not least because he was at »
According to The Wrap, the actor's deal with 20th Century Fox "is in jeopardy of falling apart".
Speaking to Digital Spy recently, Tatum said he had been working on his accent as the card-throwing Cajun.
It's also not clear what the actor's departure would mean for his producing partner Reid Carolin.
Tatum appeared with the entire X-Men cast as recently as two weekends ago at Fox's Comic-Con panel in San Diego.

It is thought that Tatum's desire to move into directing soon is playing a part in his potential Gambit exit.
Casting is currently under way on the comic book movie, with Spectre's Léa Seydoux said to be testing for the female lead. The blockbuster is due to go into production this October with a hefty $154 million budget. »
Just a few weeks after making a surprise appearance on the Hall H stage at Comic-Con while wearing a Gambit t-shirt, Channing Tatum is reportedly planning to leave the project. The Wrap reports that the actor's deal with 20th Century Fox is "in jeopardy of falling apart," while insiders claim that director Rupert Wyatt may have to start looking for a new leading man. One source said that negotiations are still ongoing between the actor and 20th Century Fox, but the source did admit that "something is up."
The shake-up comes just as the studio is in the process of testing female leads alongside Channing Tatum, including Spectre star Léa Seydoux. Channing Tatum was also set to produce Gambit with his partner Reid Carolin, but it isn't known if he plans to stay on as a producer, or if producers Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg will continue on without them. »
Yesterday, Hugh Jackman took to his social media accounts to post a teaser photo for Wolverine 3, while confirming once again that the superhero movie will be his last time portraying Logan, after 16 years. The actor's post stated that he wanted to hear from fans, in 50 words or less, what they would like to see in this new adventure, and it seems he has already gotten a number of responses from fans around the world. Earlier today, Hugh Jackman posted a brief video where he thanked everyone for their responses, and that he will personally read as many of the suggestions as he possibly can. Here's what the actor had to say.
"Guys, I am completely blown away by the responses to my tweet about your ideas. I'm going to read as many as possible. I've already been loving reading them. I've said it from the beginning, 16 years on, you're the greatest fans in the world. »
Is Channing Tatum leaving the 20th Century Fox family after showing up at Comic-Con arm in arm with all the current “X-Men” and “Fantastic Four” team? Tatum’s been the driving force behind a “Gambit” movie, a character arguably not solo-movie worthy, but the actor’s enthusiasm for the “X-Men” mutant was enough for Fox and producers Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner to eventually green-light the picture. But according to a report from The Wrap tonight, negotiations with Tatum have broken down and the actor is expected to exit the role.

Director Rupert Wyatt's Gambit movie may be in serious trouble now that it's been revealed that Channing Tatum could possibly leave the project. Whether or not he goes, however, the film will continue, and that means adding to the cast. Apparently while dealing with the Tatum situation, Fox is working to cast the movie's female lead, and it appears that Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol star Lea Seydoux is a candidate for the part. In The Wrap's report about Channing Tatum's deal with Fox falling apart, the trade offhandedly mentions that the film is currently working to find a female lead, and that French actress Lea Seydoux is one name that they are considering. Unfortunately, the report makes no mention of exactly what the part will be - but there have been a few clues. This past weekend, a casting call found its way online, and it detailed »
An individual close to the project has told The Wrap that while Tatum's reps are still in active discussions with the studio, "Something is up" with Gambit. The Studio has been in the process of testing young actresses for the female lead, however it looks like director Rupert Wyatt is going to need to start testing for the lead himself, as Tatum is planning to exit the project all together.
Tatum and his producing partner Reid Carolin had planned to be on as producers of the film. It remains to be seen if they will remain attached at all, which would leave Simon Kinberg and Laura Shuler Donner on their own.
Tatum was originally suppose to play the character in Fox's X-Men Origins: Wolverine »

It was always pretty hard to believe that Gambit was actually being made, but the main reason for it happening was no doubt Channing Tatum. It was the passion for the character he expressed in interviews which actually landed him the job, and he's since appeared at Comic-Con to hype the movie and has even talked about the way he's preparing to play the fan-favourite Cajun mutant. Well, the project is now in jeaprody as The Wrap reveals that his deal to star in the movie is close to falling apart, and insiders tell them that director Rupert Wyatt will soon be looking for a new leading man (which means that the studio won't scrap the project altogether). Fox has even been testing young actresses to star in the movie alongside Tatum - including Spectre's Lea Seydoux - but sources claim that "something is up" with his deal. The site »
When 20th Century Fox first announced that they would be making a Gambit movie, it was largely driven by the presence of Channing Tatum - who has been campaigning for the lead role in the project for a while now. Unfortunately, it now looks as though it might all be crumbling apart, as new reports are saying that the actor is making plans to leave the production. Gambit has been making slow steps towards production recently, having only hired director Rupert Wyatt to helm a few weeks ago, but now The Wrap is saying that the deal between Channing Tatum and 20th Century Fox is in serious jeopardy and may fall apart. If this happens, the actor will be walking away from his first superhero role - though it's not yet clear if he plans to stay on board as a producer. While Channing Tatum's presence has been a »
Channing Tatum’s “Gambit” deal is in jeopardy of falling apart and he is planning to exit the comic book project at 20th Century Fox, an individual with knowledge of the situation has told TheWrap. The studio had been in the process of testing young actresses to star alongside Tatum, including Lea Seydoux, but insiders suggest that director Rupert Wyatt will soon have to find a new leading man. It is unclear whether Tatum and his producing partner Reid Carolin plan to remain involved in a producing capacity, or whether Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner will move forward on their own. »
