Fox’s Gambit spinoff, set to star Channing Tatum as the card-carrying mutant, is still operating under the cloak of pre-production darkness, but a new report from Showbiz 411 claims to uncover when the project will go before cameras, as well as which supporting roles have yet to be cast.
The site’s reporter was sent a casting call for a Fox movie titled Chess, which will be shooting in New Orleans this October. Through some snooping, it was uncovered that this Chess project was none other than Gambit, which Rupert Wyatt is directing.
The Louisiana Economic Development’s “Fast Lane” website (linked to by Comic Book Movie) estimates that Chess “will cost $154,975,309, over $111 million of which will be spent in Louisiana and about $30 million of which will go to local employees.” Certainly sounds like the kind of budget we’d expect to see for a franchise property.
Here’s the casting call:

We're talking about the Gambit movie, which will see Channing Tatum in the title role, and Rupert Wyatt directing. It's set for release on October 7th 2016, and a few more details have sprung up.
Firstly, it looks as if production on Gambit is set to begin this coming October, and it's set to be filming in the Louisana area of the Us.
Furthermore, according to the Louisana Economic Development's Fastlane website, the film is set to wrap shooting in early December. And it has a nice and specific estimated budget of $154,975,309, the majority of which will be spent in the Louisiana area.
At the moment, Channing Tatum is the only confirmed casting for the movie, »
With a release date set for October of next year, Rupert Wyatt.s Gambit movie is expected to go into production very soon. but at this point it seems like the film still has a lot of stuff to take care of in pre-production. Set to play the titular mutant, a.k.a. Remy LeBeau, Channing Tatum is currently the only actor attached to the project, and it.s extremely unlikely that 20th Century Fox plans to keep it that way. But who exactly will the characters be that surround the A-lister in the future comic book blockbuster? Today it seems that the future is a little less hazy. In addition to saying that filming is planning to begin in New Orleans this fall, Showbiz 411 claims to have gotten its hands on a casting call for Gambit. The site has a list of 14 names in total . some obviously being much »
While red-blooded moviegoers are still cooling off after the hot and sultry sights of Magic Mike Xxl, Channing Tatum is getting ready to do a different kind of dance: Tatum, as you know, will play the ragin’ Cajun X-Men character, Gambit, in Rupert Wyatt’s upcoming film of the same name, due out in October of next year. In the comics, Gambit can fling glowing, energy-charged playing cards at stuff that consequently blows up, and in preperation for the part, Tatum even tapped a real magician to help him learn how to throw cards (that’s some real Method acting right there, Magician Mike). Now more details are starting to trickle out in advance of the start of filming in New Orleans this fall. The film has an estimated budget of at least $150 million, according to Louisiana state records, and in addition, Showbiz 411 has obtained the casting call, which may »

With a release date set for late next year, 20th Century Fox's Gambit movie is currently gearing up for production in New Orleans and under the working title... Chess. Now according to Showbiz411, the X-Men spin-off is not only set to commence principal photography in October, but it's also looking to fill a number of supporting roles right now. The source notes that each of the roles in the following casting call includes a deal for future sequels, which has oddly led some to believe that Channing Tatum's Remy LeBeau will replace Huge Jackman's Wolverine as Fox's leading mutant.

Now that 20th Century Fox's Gambit finally has a director in place, with Channing Tatum set to star and Rupert Wyatt taking the helm, production is just a few months away from getting started. Showbiz 411 reports that filming will begin this October in New Orleans, under the code name Chess. The site has also obtained a casting breakdown for numerous characters that are currently being cast in Gambit.
The character descriptions are quite vague, and it isn't known if any of these roles are based on characters from the Marvel comic books. It also is unclear how large or small these roles may be. Some of these characters being cast are Louis, a character in his 40s or 50s described as "elegant and intelligent. He is also said to be an "appealing entrepreneur with an unexpected dark side." There is also Vera, a character in her mid 20s to early 30s, »

20th Century Fox essentially invented the modern superhero movie with 2000's X-Men, and is shaping up to increase its superhero output in the coming years.
The next major release in its X-Men series will be 2016's Apocalypse, sandwiched between two spinoff movies. And that's only the beginning of their plans.
X-Men: Apocalypse will hit UK cinemas on May 19, 2016 and May 27 in the Us.
New mutants for old
Bryan Singer is returning to the franchise for his fourth X-Men outing, which has been billed as the concluding chapter in a trilogy that began in X-Men: First Class and continued through Days of Future Past - although Singer has also called it "the true birth of the X-Men".
Contrary to some of the rumours flying around, as far as we know, the original cast members from back in the 2000s (Patrick Stewart, »
For most, the shirtless stars of Magic Mike Xxl are the film's biggest attraction, but that hasn't stopped Australia from apparently censoring the film's poster.
It isn't known how many of the posters have been altered, but it's safe to say some locals have been less than pleased with the change.
One Twitter user wrote: "Saw poster for Magic Mike Xxl today on which the cast had singlets photoshopped onto them. I really don't get the rationale there."
However, it has since been reported that the poster hasn't been fully censored, as they have been printed on special paper in Australia which means the t-shirts disappear at night when the background lighting turns on.

The Fast & Furious saga's latest instalment carried with it all the insane action sequences and stunts we've come to expect, but few could have predicted just how emotionally affecting the film turned out to be.
The death of Paul Walker in November 2013 meant that production had to be called off while the filmmakers figured out how to complete the movie without him, and they gave him (and character Brian O'Connor) the perfect send off. Sometimes life presents a fork in the road »
One of Comic-Con's biggest surprises was the first epic Deadpool teaser trailer, which had fans on their feet screaming and cheering. It's been talked about ever since. And from the looks of things, it's going to be tough to follow up this standalone X-Men spinoff. But Ryan Reynolds certainly has plans for where he'd like to see Wade Wilson go next. While we haven't heard too much about it yet, 20th Century Fox is prepping an X-Force movie. And while he's already said an X-Men crossover might not work, this could be the perfect place for The Merc with the Mouth. Though, he wouldn't be the leader. He explains.
"I'd also love to see X-Force develop too and turn into something pretty cool. I always see Deadpool running against the grain for everything he does. He can't possibly conform to any sort of leadership role. He always has to be the wild card. »
Listen, there's nothing wrong with finding love on the set of a TV show or movie - lots of stars have done it, whether it was with another actor, a producer or director, or even a member of the crew - but there are a handful of celebrities who seem to exclusively date people they've worked with on screen. While some of the relationships have worked out (see: Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, and Jenna Dewan Tatum and Channing Tatum), most stars have had to learn the hard way that mixing work and play isn't always the best move. Keep reading for 18 stars who have dated more than three of their costars over the years. »
Playing a superhero is generally a pretty cool gig for an actor, but spare a thought for Olivia Munn who requires help from two costume assistants to squeeze into her skin-tight Psylocke gear.

If you thought that your love for Channing Tatum had already reached maximum capacity, think again. The Magic Mike Xxl star attended Comic-Con last weekend and, besides putting his smoldering good looks on display, he also revealed his softer side. When the casts of X-Men: Apocalypse, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool came out on stage to take the most amazing superhero selfie ever, Stan Lee, whose movie credits include Thor and Avengers: Age of Ultron, made a surprise appearance and joined them. While the packed stage recovered from their epic snapshot, Channing, who is set to play Gambit in Fox's upcoming film of the same name, graciously helped 92-year-old Stan off the stage. Keep reading to see more of the adorable moment, then check out the hottest guys who graced Comic-Con this year. »

Earlier today, we got an epic DC Comics Cast photo that brings the actors and directors of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad together for the first time. Not to be out done, 20th Century Fox has also gathered the casts of their upcoming movies for one giant earth-shattering photo, and it's pretty special. EW has the exclusive which includes stars from X-Men: Apocalypse, Deadpool, Gambit and Fantastic Four.
