Channing Tatum Signs 'Gambit' Deal, Will Appear in 'X-Men' Movies

6 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's official! Channing Tatum is Gambit! Despite reports that the actor was wanting to back out of the project, THR confirms that Channing Tatum has officially closed his deal, making him part of 20th Century Fox's Marvel family. The film will open in theaters October 2016.

Most expected that the actor would eventually sign his deal. And fans were shocked to hear that he wanted out. The project seemed to be falling apart as sources close to the production suggested that Fox and Channing Tatum couldn't come to terms on the contract. While that is now proven untrue, it is said that the studio and the actor did hit a sensitive spot in negotiations. That sensitive spot was not disclosed to the public.

The negotiations caused a heated series of back-and-firths, as Gambit, a spinoff from the lucrative X-Men franchise, geared up for its shoot this fall. These types of snags »

Channing Tatum Closes ‘Gambit’ Deal

8 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Channing Tatum has closed a deal to star in “Gambit” for 20th Century Fox, a source close to project confirmed.

News of Tatum’s official involvement in the “X-Men” spinoff lays to rest the rumors that the project was falling apart.

Tatum has been tied to the superhero pic for some time as producer and star. He even appeared at Fox’s Comic-Con panel with the cast of “X-Men.” Details on the extent of Tatum’s involvement in future “X-Men” projects are still under wraps.

Gambit” is slated for an October 2016 release.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes” helmer Rupert Wyatt will direct a script by Josh Zetumer, who drew from a treatment written by “Gambit” co-creator Chris Claremont.

In addition to Tatum, Reid Carolin, Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg will produce.

Tatum is repped by UTA.

The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

Channing Tatum Set For "Gambit" After All

9 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Channing Tatum has closed his deal to star in the X-Men spin-off "Gambit" for 20th Century Fox according to THR. This follows on from reports last week that indicated the actor was seriously considering leaving the project after he and Fox failed to come to terms.

So was it the classic old Hollywood tactic of "negotiating in the press"? The trade says they did hit a sensitive spot in negotiations, but his participation hardly was in any real danger because the actor already had invested heavily in the superhero part.

What was a sticking point was both Tatum's backend compensation, and the extent of his involvement in the X-Men universe as Fox was seeing this as a multi-picture commitment.

Rupert Wyatt directed the Josh Zetumer penned film. Tatum, Reid Carolin, Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg are producing. »

First 'Fantastic Four' Clip Sends the Team to an Alternate Universe

30 July 2015 2:17 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Reed Richards (Miles Teller) introduces Ben Grimm (Jamie Bell) to his fellow inter-dimensional travelers Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan) and Victor Domashev (Toby Kebbell) in the first clip for Fantastic Four. The scene takes place as they all make a history-breaking journey to an alternate universe, where they will all get their own unique super powers. We haven't seen much of Toby Kebbell's Victor Domashev before he turns into the villainous Doom, but he appears to be just a normal guy getting ready to travel into another world in this scene. And the clip begs the question, where is Sue Storm?

20th Century Fox's Fantastic Four reboot is said to be based on the "Ultimate Fantastic Four" comics, offering a a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel's original and longest-running superhero team. The story centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. »

But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.

Watch: 15-Minute Video Breaks Down The Comic Vs Movie Differences In 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past'

29 July 2015 2:20 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s been two weeks since “X-Men: Days Of Future Past – The Rogue Cut” hit home video and while fans continue to parse through the changes of the new alternate version of the 2014 blockbuster film, the fine folks at CineFix are digging even deeper to find the differences between Bryan Singer’s superhero film and its source material. In its latest installment of “What’s the Difference?” Cinefix spends nearly fifteen minutes comparing the 1981 two-issue “Days of Future Past” storyline written by Chris Claremont and John Byrne for “The Uncanny X-Men” with the script by Simon Kinberg. Cinefix’s video gets very in depth with its subject matter, even explaining the significance of Kitty Pryde being the time traveller in the comic while also defending the choice of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine going in her place in the Singer film. Overall, the video is a great look at the changes »

‘Deadpool’ First Look: See Ryan Reynolds’ Merc Romancing Morena Baccarin

29 July 2015 12:43 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While there’s still no sign of the “Deadpool” trailer that took Comic-Con by storm earlier this month, 20th Century Fox has thrown fans a bone by releasing three new photos from Ryan Reynolds’ hotly anticipated superhero film, courtesy of the U.K.’s Empire magazine.

We’ve seen Marvel’s infamous “Merc with a Mouth” in costume already, thanks to previously released promotional stills, but one of the new images offers our first glimpse of Reynolds’ Wade Wilson out of his signature red and black armor with his paramour Vanessa Carlysle (Morena Baccarin), aka Copycat, a shape-shifting mutant who was associated with the X-Men offshoot group X-Force in the comics.

The second photo shows Deadpool alongside Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, a telepathic mutant with precognitive abilities.

This will be Reynolds’ second time behind Deadpool’s mask; the character was last seen onscreen in 2009’s poorly received X-Men spinoff, »

Channing Tatum may be exiting Fox’s Gambit movie

29 July 2015 12:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite making an appearance just a couple weeks ago at Fox’s San Diego Comic-Con panel, it looks like Channing Tatum may be dropping out of 2016’s X-Men spinoff Gambit.

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, »

Channing Tatum Exiting 'X-Men' Spinoff 'Gambit'?

28 July 2015 7:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 L&#233a 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. »

Report: Channing Tatum May Bail On 20th Century Fox’s ‘Gambit’

28 July 2015 6:28 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

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.

Tatum out of Gambit?

28 July 2015 6:05 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

After yesterdays news of Fox's Gambit gearing up for production, with $150 million budget, the project looks to be in jeopardy with rumors of Channing Tatum walking.

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 »

An X-Men and Fantastic Four movie could happen

24 July 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

X-Men: Apocalypse director Bryan Singer has revealed that an X-Men/ Fantastic Four crossover movie could be a ‘thing’ in the future.

“Those ideas are in play,” he said. “That would be a natural match-up because they’re both ensemble films and there is a natural mechanism by which to do it.”

20th Century Fox have a big couple of weeks as they prepare to release Josh Trank‘s reboot of the Fantastic Four to screens. We’ve not heard much about the project in terms of early buzz, and we’re npt seeing the film until the week of release, so we’ll reserve judgement until then, but there’s obviously some positivity around the property judging by this cross-over news.

Singer is still shooting ‘Apocalypse’ over in Canada. Producer and screenwriter Simon Kinberg is involved with both movies, so could the next step be a tie-in? After all, ‘Apocalypse »
