Channing Tatum is in talks to play a very famous X-Man

13 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It won’t be long now until the X-Men franchise sets a new record for onscreen mutants with Days of Future Past, a movie about future X-Men and past X-Men and perhaps even some present-day X-Men. Beyond lies Apocalypse and another Wolverine and a mysterious spin-off movie that might be X-Force, with the implicit promise that they’ll keep making X-Men movies until X-Men 2099 is considered a period piece. (Remember X-Men 2099? Skullfire!) But a new dark horse has entered the X-Men Spin-Off Showcase sweepstakes: Channing Tatum told MTV’s Josh Horowitz that he has spoken to X-producer Lauren Shuler Donner »

Channing Tatum says he's talked Gambit with long-time X-Men producer

15 April 2014 7:29 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) White House Down star Channing Tatum revealed last fall that he would love to play Gambit, scoring an enthusiastic endorsement from not only X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner — “I’m dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum” — but also the blessing of Taylor Kitsch, who portrayed the character in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". But what are the odds we could actually see Tatum as smooth-talking New Orleans mutant Remy LeBeau? Pretty decent, it seems. “I met with Lauren Shuler Donner, and I would love it,” he told MTV backstage at the MTV Movie Awards. “Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved. I mean, I’ve loved them all, they’re all great, but I guess just being from being down South – my dad’s from Louisiana, I’m from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida – I don’t know, I just related to him. He’s just »

Channing Tatum Really, Really, Really Wants to Play Gambit

15 April 2014 5:43 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Gambit is my favorite X-Men character by far, which is why I was particularly irritated with his portrayal in director Gavin Hood’s misguided superhero flick “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” Taylor Kitsch is probably a really nice guy, but he’s definitely not what I had in mind for Gambit. I keep hoping someone will do the character justice. Unfortunately, 20th Century Fox is keen on casting “Magic Mike” star Channing Tatum as Remy Etienne LeBeau in a standalone Gambit movie. Personally, I hate the idea. I Loathe It. I would love to see someone like Luke Evans tackle the role, though that’s probably not going to happen anytime soon. In fact, it seems Tatum is already in talks with producer Lauren Shuler Donner about the project. He recently told MTV News: I met with Lauren Shuler Donner. And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved. »

Channing Tatum has met with Fox over X-Men role as Gambit

15 April 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in September, Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street star Channing Tatum stated that he’d like to join Fox’s X-Men universe in the role of the Cajun card-throwing mutant Gambit, with longtime X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner subsequently stating that she is “dying” to do a Gambit movie with Tatum in the role. Well, it seems that both may get their wish, with Tatum revealing that he’s met with the producer about taking on the role previously played by Taylor Kitsch in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

“I met with Lauren Shuler Donner,” Tatum tells MTV. “And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved. I mean I’ve loved them all, they’re all great, but I guess from being down south – my dad’s from Louisiana, I’m from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida – I don’t know. I just related to him.

Channing Tatum Has Met With Producers About Playing Gambit In X-Men: Apocalypse

15 April 2014 2:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Channing Tatum revealed in a recent interview at the MTV Movie Awards that he has met with X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner about playing the mutant Gambit in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. Though nothing is official just yet, the actor said that he would “die” to play the role.

“I met with Lauren Shuler Donner. And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I’ve ever loved. I mean I’ve loved them all, they’re all great, but I guess from being down south – my dad’s from Louisiana, I’m from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida – I don’t know. I just related to him. I hope it [comes together]. You never know it’s a weird industry. If the stars align, I would die to play it. I’m already working on the accent. It’s crappy at the moment.”

Donner has said in the past she would »

Channing Tatum In Talks To Play X-Men’s Gambit

15 April 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Channing Tatum has held talks over playing Gambit in an X-Men movie.

The G.I. Joe and Magic Mike actor confirmed the news in an interview with MTV, claiming that he has already met with series producer Lauren Shuler Donner about the part.

The news comes after Tatum’s revelation last September that he was interested in playing Gambit in a future X-Men movie. Whether or not those comments back then came after he had already met with Donner or his revelation spurned interest in Fox casting the actor for a future movie, it’s unclear.

What we can almost say for certainty is that Tatum’s Gambit won’t be appearing in the new movie X-Men: Days Of Future Past, which opens next month. That film already has mutant character overload as it attempts to bridge two timelines together and it seems unlikely the movie could have kept a cameo »

Channing Tatum Met with Producers to Talk Gambit

15 April 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

In news that has the Internet in a tizzy, Channing Tatum has taken a meeting about playing Gambit, the drinking, gambling, thieving, womanizing X-Man from New Orleans. We know that producer Lauren Shuler Donner has been pushing for a standalone Gambit movie with Tatum in the lead for awhile, and Tatum has spoken publicly about how much he would love to play the character before. But with an official meeting, it sounds like things might be inching forward. 

Gambit is definitely a fan favorite, but he hasn’t been used in any of the X-Men movies yet. We aren’t counting X-Men Origins: Wolverine, in which he made a brief appearance played by Taylor Kitsch. I think we’ve all agreed to pretend that movie never happened, right? If the project moves forward, the plan is to make a standalone film about the character, and to make it on a »

Channing Tatum Could Be Gambit in 'X-Men' Spin-Off

15 April 2014 12:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Channing Tatum has conquered practically every genre there is, starring in hit comedies (21 Jump Street), action movies (White House Down), romantic dramas (Dear John) and even male-stripper dramas (Magic Mike). However, he has yet to appear in a superhero movie, and the actor has previously revealed he wants to play Gambit in a future X-Men movie. How close is this to actually happening? The actor recently spoke with MTV, where he revealed that he has actually met with X-Men: Days of Future Past producer Lauren Shuler Donner about playing the Cajun mutant.

"I met with Lauren Shuler Donner. And I would love it. Gambit is really the only X-Man I've ever loved. I mean I've loved them all, they're all great, but I guess from being down south - my dad's from Louisiana, I'm from Mississippi, Alabama, Florida - I don't know. I just related to him.

Channing "Gambit" Tatum and Your Favorite Superheroes

15 April 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

I've been quite blocked today (apologies) so I'd like to turn the time over to you for an open discussion. With news coming that Channing Tatum would love to play Gambit in a movie (poor Taylor Kitsch. It's not his fault everyone has tried to scrub X-Men Origins: Wolverine from their memory) Fox will surely be jumping all over that to make it happen.

Though the superhero movie boom will surely die out as all movie trends do eventually, we have no idea how long it will last so we'll just try to enjoy it while it does rather than bristle against it.

The other day on Facebook Stan Lee posted a 'name your five favorite superheroes' thread and I answered more quickly than I knew I could. Without thinking about it five names popped right into mind: Nightcrawler, The Human Torch, Storm, Spider-Man, and The Scarlet Witch. Other than »

Channing Tatum confirms meetings regarding the lead in the Gambit movie

15 April 2014 10:37 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Not sure if you would consider this an improvement or a step backwards from Taylor Kitsch but Channing Tatum has confirmed that he has met with producer Lauren Shuler Donner about the possibility of starring in a an X-men spin-off centered on Gambit. Back in January, Donner revealed that Channing Tatum would be her choice for a potential Gambit film, but it seemed like the type of talk that gets rumors started. Now, it seems like it was a lot more than that. Speaking with MTV regarding his »

What Films Will Show Up at the 2014 Cannes Film Festivalc

14 April 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

This Thursday, April 17, the complete 2014 Cannes Film Festival line-up will be announced and while this will be my first year since 2010 that I won't be in attendance I still can't help but be curious and excited. We know Grace of Monaco will serve as the opener and have also learned in the last 48 hours Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Birdman and Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice won't be in attendance, which eliminates two of the potentially major entrants, but what's leftc It's more or less confirmed David Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars will be in the line-up. Other very likely candidates include Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's Two Days, One Night (Deux jours, une nuit), Tommy Lee Jones' The Homesman and The Rover starring Robert Pattinson and Guy Pearce. I expect The Rover will be a Director's Fortnight entrant. Other strong competitors with a larger amount of audience awareness include Xavier Dolan's Mommy, »

Watch: New Teaser For 'The Normal Heart' With Mark Ruffalo & Julia Roberts Raises Its Voice

13 April 2014 6:20 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We'll know in a few days if our prediction that "The Normal Heart" will be hitting the Cannes Film Festival is accurate, but until then, a new teaser for the HBO film is here. The drama is based on the acclaimed play by Larry Kramer, chronicling the onset of the HIV/AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 1980s as gay activists and concerned doctors fought to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic. And it's a wrenching tale, with Mark Ruffalo's line, "I am trying understand why nobody gives a shit, now we're dying," resonating pretty hard. Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch (along with a questionable wig) and Jim Parsons co-star with Ryan Murphy behind the camera. "The Normal Heart" debuts on HBO on May 25th. Watch below. »

Bryan Singer and Simon Kinberg talk X-Men: Apocalypse, confirm returning cast members

11 April 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’re still over a month away from the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, but attention is already starting to turn towards 20th Century Fox’s next mutant superhero offering X-Men: Apocalypse, with director Bryan Singer and writer-producer Simon Kinberg taking the opportunity to discuss their adaptation of the classic X-Men tale Age of Apocalypse during an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

“[X-Men: Days of Future Past] won’t necessarily create an alternate universe, but there may be some swapping things that I’m playing with,” states Singer, who is directing his third X-Men movie with this year’s sequel. “You won’t feel at the end of the movie that it set up Apocalypse. What it does is it sets up possibilities. But what we’ll discover in Apocalypse is that events in this movie made that happen. Apocalypse deals with ancient mutancy. What would humans have thought mutants were? What would mutants think humans were? »
