Wait, are we sure that its Twin Peaks Day and not Simon Kinberg Day, because this dude is everywhere, this afternoon - including this JoBlo exclusive interview. Earlier, the writer-producer spoke about an alternate cut and the future of the Fantastic Four at Fox, now, he's spoken with Comicbook.com about the state of Channing Tatum's on-again-off-again plans for an X-Men-related Gambit film.

20th Century Fox's X-Men spin-off Gambit has had a rocky journey en route to the silver screen, with multiple delays, although the movie is still actually happening. Producer Lauren Shuler Donner made it clear that the project is still moving forward in an interview last month. But the standalone drama is still without a director, after Doug Liman parted ways. And it isn't clear when this long-awaited movie may finally get off the ground. Today, we have an update from another producer, Simon Kinberg, who claims that filming will likely begin next year.
Lrm Online spoke with producer Simon Kinberg, who reiterated Lauren Shuler Donner's previous comments that the project is still happening. He also revealed that star Channing Tatum is still committed to the role, and is trying to get the character just right. Here's what he had to say below, confirming that filming on Gambit will likely begin next year. »
Originally planned for a November 2016 release, with Channing Tatum starring as the titular card-slingin’ cajun, that date came and went with not even a peep from 20th Century Fox. With Magneto: Origins famously being cancelled back in the mid 2000s, fans of Gambit had every reason to be worried that his appearances on the big screen might be limited to the mind-blowingly dreadful X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
To allay these fears, X-Men producer Simon Kinberg has now stepped in to update us:
“It’s in active development. It’s a movie that we hope will be ready to go by the end of this year and shoot next year. We have two or three X-Men related movies this year so it can wait for a moment. The process »

With Hugh Jackman's last Wolverine movie Logan opening next week, Lrm Online had a chance to sit down with the movie's producers, SImon Kinberg and Hutch Parker, and ask about the future of Fox's mutant franchise.
One of the movies that was announced, dated and then has been playing the "director shuffle" for the past year or more is a movie about everyone's favorite Cajun mutant Gambit, with Channing Tatum committed to playing the popular X-Men character.
Because having Tatum sounds like such a great idea on paper where fans of the character are hoping it will happen soon, we asked Kinberg about when we might see that movie.
“Yeah, it is going to happen, and it’s just a question…," Kinberg began, pausing to choose his next words carefully.
"Channing is—in the best possible way—as committed and as rigorous about getting the character right as Ryan »

Joe Carnahan is a busy man at the moment. He’s writing Shawn Levy’s Uncharted movie, prepping his next directorial effort Bad Boys for Life, and recently announced a remake of The Raid with Frank Grillo.
Well, we can now add another project to his slate, as Collider is reporting that Carnahan is currently scripting an X-Force adaptation for 20th Century Fox. The site states that at present, he is only contracted for the screenplay, but could potentially direct should Fox like his script.
X-Force revolves around a team of mutants who adopt a more militant approach to that of the X-Men. In the comic books, the team has had a revolving roster of members, »

There are few producers who have had the overwhelming success of Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions from their early days turning Oren Peli’s low-budget Paranormal Activity into a hugely profitable franchise, followed by the equally successful Insidious and The Purge movies. Jason Blum also has an Oscar nomination notched onto his career belt for his involvement in getting Damien Chazelle’s Oscar-nominated Whiplash made, and Blumhouse were involved with bringing Jem and the Holograms to movie theaters. (Sorry, but I actually kind of liked it, even though it bombed… big time.)
Jordan Peele’s directorial debut Get Out will be the third time Blumhouse has worked with an actor making their transition into directing, as Jason Blum handled the same duties on Joel Edgerton’s The Gift and Leigh Whannell’s Insidious: Chapter 3 a few years back.

Jenna Dewan Tatum is keeping a collection of "memorabilia" for her 3-year-old daughter, Everly, that includes a very special Oscars dress.
The 36-year-old actress recently revealed the touching reason why she's saving the black lace Rachel Roy gown that she wore to the 2013 Academy Awards.
"I actually kept the red carpet dress I wore at the Oscars—this black dress when I was pregnant—for her just so she could have that, because I thought that's neat, that she wasn't born yet but she went to the Oscars," Jenna told InStyle magazine on Tuesday. "I have my wedding dress. I have some pieces of jewelry to give to her, and lots of memorabilia that I’m keeping for her, for sure."

So Cosmo is turning up the heat this Wednesday! On the next episode of the E! show, Channing Tatum invites Joanna Coles and the Cosmopolitan staff to a "private" audition for Magic Mike dancers for their live shows in Las Vegas and things get pretty intimate. "I am absolutely terrified that one of them is going to try and give me a lap dance because I'd pass out with embarrassment," Joanna says before going into the audition room. But even though she's nervous, she's also excited about the experience. Joanna explains, "I've been looking forward to today because my friend Channing Tatum suggested that the Cosmo staff get involved in the auditioning »
Hey there, lovebirds! Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum enjoyed an afternoon in the sun on Friday, spending some well-deserved alone time on a vacation in Hawaii. First on their itinerary? The beach, of course! The Magic Mike: Xxl star and his longtime ladylove flaunted a little Pda (and their impeccable figures) as they splashed in the ocean and chased each other through the sand. Jenna's rock-solid abs couldn't be missed as she rocked a bright red string bikini with cutouts and delicate gold chain wrapped around her tummy. In photographs obtained by E! News, Channing—who kept it casual in black swim trunks—ran after his Step Up co-star with the biggest smile on his »
Remember Gambit? Set to be released last October, the movie first found an A-List lead star in the form of Channing Tatum before losing not one, but two directors. On the surface, the spinoff sounded like it had real potential (especially with a treatment written by Chris Claremont), and after everything that's happened recently, it's hard not to now view The Batman in the same way. Originally, the movie was to be written by Ben Affleck and Geoff Johns - a real dream team - and directed by the former. Sure, Live by Night disappointed (something which I think can be blamed on Warner Bros. getting the filmmaker to squeeze it in between Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League), but Affleck's track record is otherwise impeccable. In recent weeks, however, the actor exited the director's chair after months of claiming he was working on getting the »
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum have been married since 2009, but they still act like teenagers who sneak out of the house for some alone time (and we love it). The adorable couple escaped real life this week when they jetted off to Hawaii for a tropical vacation, and on Thursday, they were spotted flirting up a storm in the surf. Channing and Jenna, who met on the set of 2006's Step Up and are now parents to daughter Everly, appeared to re-create some of the film's iconic dance moves in the sand. Channing, who showed off his muscles in just black swimming trunks, playfully picked up Jenna, who looked amazing in a red bikini, and brought her into the water. They laughed up a storm and high-fived their way through the afternoon, proving that the key to any romance is to never stop being best friends. Related:See Jenna Dewan Tatum »

The lovebirds were spotted soaking up the sun on a beach in Hawaii on Thursday, packing on the Pda in exclusive snaps obtained by Et.
Jenna, 36, was all smiles during the outing, showing off her incredibly fit figure in a red-hot string bikini.
Her beau, also 36, looked equally fit, sporting some scruff and a pair of Nike basketball shorts.
While Jenna flaunted her toned beach bum, Chan, a bit sunburnt, stayed close by her side.
Like, really close…
The two appeared to be having a blast on their romantic getaway, getting playful »
Behold the first image from Lucky Logan which is Soderbergh's first post-retirement theatrical feature. It's yet another heist picture from a director who is very fond of stories about professional thieves and or elaborately planned ambitious crimes. See also Haywire, Oceans franchise, Out of Sight.
Pictured are Adam Driver and Channing Tatum in the background (why are they barely featuring a star as big as Chan in the first still?) and platinum blonde Daniel Craig in the foreground. They're doing an elaborate heist during a Nascar race.
Are you excited to welcome Soderbergh back to the movies? »

In just two weeks, 20th Century Fox will bring one part of the X-Men universe to a close with Logan, which marks Hugh Jackman's final performance as the iconic Wolverine. The cast and crew are starting to do press for the movie, with Patrick Stewart throwing down the gauntlet, and throwing some shade, at another superhero team, The Avengers. During a recent interview, Patrick Stewart was asked, if there should come a day where the X-Men have to square off against The Avengers in a fight, who would win? Without hesitation, the actor had this to say.
While his brief statement to ComicBook.com was meant as somewhat of a joke, Patrick Stewart does have a point. The mutant abilities possessed »
Steven Soderbergh’s brief and productive retirement as a director of feature films will officially come to a close this summer. His movie Logan Lucky, about a heist at a Nascar race, will debut August 18, Entertainment Weekly reports. In a statement via EW, Soderbergh explained that the film is not merely a chance to see Channing Tatum and Adam Driver play robbing brothers, but is also part of an experiment in release strategy. “This is the result of 16 years of conversations I’ve had with Dan [Fellman] about creating a new distribution paradigm for star-driven, wide release projects,” he said. “With Logan Lucky, I have the right movie, the right team, and the right partner in Bleecker Street to test some personal theories I’ve accumulated. It’s put-up-or-shut-up time.” So maybe it will entertain and also, you know, save cinema. »

Phobia-ridden and driven by a sense of existential dread (and also, literally, his mother, in her car) a man places an ad in the newspaper: prove the existence of life after death, win thirty thousand dollars. Of the many replies he receives (including, apparently, many masturbators), Miles narrows the applicants down to just three – a scientist, a medium and an entrepreneur.
First and foremost, We Go On is a road movie; a mother and her son, seeking answers. Like a downbeat Mulder and Scully, the sceptic (or flat-out unbeliever) and the agnostic, scrabbling for hope in a world which often terrifies the latter. Such a concept would be nothing without a strong pair of leads, and this »

Bleecker Street set to distribute in the U.S.; film gets August release date.
The film, Soderbergh’s first after a four-year hiatus, is set for wide release in the U.S. on 18 August.
Logan Lucky is a thriller about two brothers who attempt a heist during a Nascar race. It stars Daniel Craig (pictured), Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Riley Keough, Hilary Swank, Seth MacFarlane, Katie Holmes and Katherine Waterston.
Says Soderbergh: “This is the result of sixteen years of conversations I’ve had with Dan about creating a new distribution paradigm for star-driven, wide release projects. With Logan Lucky I have the right movie, the »
Let it be known that Steven Soderbergh has tabled talk of his self-imposed retirement – for now, at least – and is back, back, back in time for Logan Lucky, a Nascar heist drama with a truly star-studded ensemble to match.
In light of today’s news that Bleecker Street is joining forces with Soderbergh’s Fingerprint Releasing to launch Logan Lucky, we now have confirmation that the upcoming romp will screech into theaters on August 18th, 2017. And if that wasn’t enough, today also brings forth our first peek at Daniel Craig and Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) suited, booted, and up to no good.
They’ll be joined by Jump Street stalwart Channing Tatum, and it’s understood both he and Driver will play two brothers – Jimmy (Tatum) and Clyde Logan (Driver) – who set about reversing a family curse during the famous Coca-Cola 600 race at Charlotte (Nc) Motor Speedway. »
