Lea Seydoux offered female lead in Gambit opposite Channing Tatum

25 August 2015 11:41 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Blue Is the Warmest Colour star Lea Seydoux has been offered the lead female role in upcoming 20th Century Fox comic book adaptation Gambit.

Seydoux, who also stars in the new James Bond film Spectre , is said to have beaten out Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) and Mad Max: Fury Road star Abbey Lee for the role of Belladonna Boudreaux, although Ferguson is reported to have turned down the role to star in The Girl On the Train with Emily Blunt.

Channing Tatum (Foxcatcher) plays the lead mutant in the film, which is directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and will see Seydoux as Gambit’s childhood love who gains powers of her own when she grows up and becomes head of the Assassin’s Guild.

Expect more casting for the film to be announced soon. Gambit is set for release on October 6th, »

Lea Seydoux Offered Belladonna Boudreaux In 'Gambit'

25 August 2015 7:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

...and then there was one. Earlier this month it was reported that  Lea Seydoux ("Spectre," "Blue Is The Warmest Color"), Rebecca Ferguson ("Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation"), and Abbey Lee ("Mad Max: Fury Road," "The Neon Demon") were all in the mix to join Channing Tatum in "Gambit." However, as August draws to a close, only one remains standing. Deadline reports that Seydoux has received the offer for the role of Belladonna Boudreaux in Marvel's next superhero movie. Rupert Wyatt will direct the pic about the Louisiana mutant, with Seydoux playing Gambit's longtime love, who has her own unique set of skills and also rolls with the Assassin's Guild. Presumably all will go well, and Seydoux will sign on. Production on the film begins this fall. "Gambit" opens on October 7, 2016. »

Lea Seydoux Is Belladonna Boudreaux In X-Men’s Gambit Spin-Off

25 August 2015 3:01 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Tumblr

A couple of weeks ago it was announced that three major actresses were up for the part of Gambit’s female lead, Belladonna Boudreaux aka Bella. In the mix were Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation’s Rebecca Ferguson, Mad Max: Fury Road’s Abbey Lee and Spectre actress Lea Seydoux. Now we’re hearing that Seydoux has seen off the formidable competition, and been made an offer to star in the film.

Bella is Gambit’s childhood sweetheart turned professional rival, and fully capable of taking her former beau to task. Her part in the mythology is pretty important, so expect Seydoux to feature heavily as the capable and physically oriented heroine. The actress has a role in Bond outing Spectre and briefly popped up in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, but is still best known for Cannes darling Blue is the Warmest Colour. Her part in Gambit will probably change that. »

Spectre Bond Girl Léa Seydoux poised to join Channing Tatum in Gambit

25 August 2015 1:48 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Channing Tatum's card-hurling Cajun Gambit has finally found his leading lady.

Spectre and Blue Is the Warmest Colour star Léa Seydoux has been offered the role of Bella Donna Boudreaux, a character who first encounters Gambit when they were both children and later heads up the Assassins Guild.

According to Deadline, the French actress has been offered the role ahead of Mad Max: Fury Road's Abbey Lee and Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation's Rebecca Ferguson.

Ferguson allegedly withdrew from the running after being offered one of the lead roles in the big-screen adaptation of The Girl on the Train.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt will be behind the camera on Gambit, with Tatum also serving as a producer on the comic book film.

Gambit will hit cinemas in October 2016, following on from X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016. Watch Tatum discuss Gambit with Digital Spy »

24 August 2015 10:45 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

X-Men spin-off Gambit is adding Lea Seydoux to its cast...

After a bit of umming ahhing, Channing Tatum finally signed up over the summer to produce and star in the upcoming X-Men spin-off, Gambit. Rupert Wyatt (Snow White And The Huntsman) is directing the new movie, which is set to go into production this autumn.

A week or two back, the shortlist for the lead female role surfaced, with Mad Max: Fury Road's Abbey Lee, Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation's Rebecca Ferguson and Spectre's Lea Seydoux reported to be the final three.

Since then, Ferguson dropped out of the running when she agreed to co-star in The Girl On The Train. And now we learn that Fox has offered the co-starring role in Gambit to Lea Seydoux.

She's going to be playing Belladonna Boudreaux - Bella to her mates - in the new movie. Gambit is in cinemas on »

Spectre's Léa Seydoux Offered Gambit's Female Lead

24 August 2015 6:02 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

After a batch of potential names emerged a while ago for a key role opposite Channing Tatum in Fox’s Gambit film, it appears we have a front-runner. Léa Seydoux has been offered the part of Belladonna Bourdreaux. Tatum is realising his long-held ambition to play the smooth-talking, kinetic energy-utilising X-Men rogue better known as Remy LeBeau, with Rupert Wyatt on board to direct and Josh Zetumer writing the script based on a treatment from comic book stalwart Chris Claremont. Though this is planned as a stand-alone film and, in Tatum’s opinion, should present a twist on the usual superhero outing – since Gambit’s hardly a by-the-book kind of man – there’s every chance his character will end up meeting his future X-Men colleagues at some point down the line. And, assuming she makes a deal, Seydoux will be Bourdreaux, a long-time friend and love-interest for Gambit, who is »

War Of The Planet Of The Apes Just Cast One Of Its Two Human Leads

24 August 2015 5:16 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The real star of the rebooted Planet of the Apes movies has always been Andy Serkis and his motion capture performance as the chimpanzee Caesar. Certainly helping to move the plot forward, however, will be the presence of humans - and now we know who will be playing one of them in the upcoming War of the Planet of the Apes. According to new reports, it's a gig that belongs to young actor Gabriel Chavarria. Deadline doesn't really have any details about the part he will be playing in the Matt Reeves-directed blockbuster, but offers that he will be one of two human leads in the movie and that the size of the part is akin to James Franco's in Rupert Wyatt's Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The new sequel is gearing up to start production soon, but at this point Chavarria is the only »

From an outsider's perspective, it seems like Rupert Wyatt's Gambit really needs to get a move-on, as it should be starting production soon but has yet to put some key pieces in place.

It was back in late July that we first heard Seydoux's name mentioned in connection with the part of Belladonna Boudreaux - heir to the head of the Assassins Guild - but today Deadline is reporting that 20th Century Fox has extended an offer to the actress. According to reports, the French star's closest competition for the role included Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation's Rebecca Ferguson, and Mad Max: Fury Road's Abbey Lee - but the competition became »

According to Deadline, Lea Seydoux has been offered the role of Belladonna Boudreaux in the Rupert Wyatt directed X-Men spinoff, Gambit, next to Channing Tatum in the title role. Seydoux, Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road), and Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) were all reportedly in contention, but when the latter dropped out to take a lead role in The Girl On The Train it became a two horse race, which the French actress evidently won.

Seydoux seemed to be the fan-favourite choice for this role, so expect some happy fans! Audiencs will bext see her opposote Daniel Craig in Spectre. »

Rebecca Ferguson Out Of The Running For Gambit Role

19 August 2015 6:27 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Rebecca Ferguson was one of the highlights of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, so when it was announced that her, Lea Seydoux and Abbey Lee were on the shortlist to play the female lead in Fox’s X-Men spinoff, Gambit, many fans hoped to see the Swedish actress land the role. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen, as Ferguson has taken herself out of the running to star in another movie.

According to Deadline, she’ll join Emily Blunt in the Tate Taylor-directed adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ novel The Girl On The Train, playing a character named Anna. So, unless we hear of anyone else emerging as a contender, we can assume that it’ll be either Lea Seydoux (Spectre, Blue is the Warmest Color), or Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) that will end up playing the daughter of the leader of the New Orleans Assassins’ Guild, Bella Donna Boudreaux. »

Gambit: Rebecca Ferguson Out Of The Running For 'Bella Donna Boudreaux' Role

18 August 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

After her impressive turn as a British Intelligence Agent in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, many fans hoped to see Rebecca Ferguson land the role of Bel Boudreaux alongside Channing Tatum's Remy Lebeau in the Gambit movie, but alas it wasn't to be. Deadline reports that the Swedish actress has taken herself out of the running to play Anna in the Tate Taylor-directed adaptation of Paula Hawkins' novel, The Girl On The Train, with Emily Blunt. This means that - unless another contender emerges - the role of the daughter of the leader of the New Orleans Assassins' Guild will be played by either Lea Seydoux (Spectre), or Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road). The site makes no mention of which one might be the frontrunner. Rupert Wyatt will direct the X-Men spin-off, which is on schedule to start filming in October, and is set to open »
