Fox is putting some kinetic energy into a new Gambit movie, with Channing Tatum set to star as the card-slinging mutant, sources confirm to EW. The 21 Jump Street star has long been linked to the character, who has the power to imbue any object with a dose of explosive power. (His weapon of choice is a deck of playing cards.) He gave an interview to MTV stating, “Gambit’s the only X-Man I ever loved. He’s the most un-x-Man X-Man that’s ever been an X-Man … he loves women and drinkin’ and smokin’.” The actor and the character also »

It's in Apocalypse that we'll first get to see Gambit as played by Channing Tatum on the big screen. And that appearance is set to be a springboard for a Gambit standalone movie, that will reintroduce the character first played in the movies by Taylor Kitsch (in X-Men Origins: Wolverine).
Fox is moving the Gambit standalone project forward too, and it's now hired a screenwriter to put a draft of the film together. The writer in question is Josh Zetumer, who co-penned the script for the RoboCop reboot that was released earlier this year.
Nearly six months after producer Lauren Shuler Donner revealed that Channing Tatum will play Gambit in a new X-Men spin-off movie, the project is officially moving forward with Channing Tatum officially signed to star and Joshua Zetumer (RoboCop) writing the screenplay.
The script will be based on a treatment written by Marvel comics writer Chris Claremont, who created the character alongside Jim Lee in 1990, with story details being kept under wraps. The mutant character, also known as Remy LeBeau, has the ability to charge matter with an explosive kinetic energy, causing objects to explode on impact. Gambit was previously seen on the big screen in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, played by Taylor Kitsch.
Channing Tatum is also attached to produce Gambit with his Free Association partner Reid Carolin, who wrote the script for and is producing Magic Mike Xxl, which is currently in production. Lauren Shuler Donner is also producing alongside Simon Kinberg. »
20th Century Fox is officially moving forward with Channing Tatum's solo Gambit movie. Tatum is officially on board to star in it, and they've just hired RoboCop remake writer Josh Zetumer to to write the screenplay.
According to Deadline, the story for the film will be based on a treatment that was written by legendary Marvel Comics writer Chris Claremont, who co-created the character in 1990 with comic artist Jim Lee.
As of now, no plot details have been released, but fans have been waiting to see the badass character properly brought to life for the big screen. Taylor Kitsch played the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but I think most X-Men fans would like to pretend that that movie never existed.
I'm happy to see that this movie is moving forward. I've always liked the idea of Tatum playing the character. He's become quite a talented actor over the »

20th Century Fox wants the world to know that they’ve not forgotten about card-trickster, Gambit. They might not be announcing a nine-film plan with crossovers more tangled than a box of Christmas lights, but they’ve officially revealed that Channing Tatum will lead the X-Men spinoff with Josh Zetumer onboard to pen the first draft.
Tatum’s name has been linked to Gambit for some time now, as the actor first showed interest in the role over a year ago. While today verifies his involvement, he spoke out earlier this month on the direction the story will take, implying it will be a unique origin story.
Now we’ve learned who will be tasked with bringing that tale to light, as Fox has hired RoboCop scribe Josh Zetumer to pen the screenplay. With only one feature to his name, Zetumer might be considered a risky move, but it seems »

These days, it seems hard for me to believe that there was a point where I did not like the work of Channing Tatum. For several of his early movies, I felt like he was a good looking guy with no chops at all, and it didn't seem to me like he was ever going to loosen up. He had some buzz around him when he was in "A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints," and he was certainly busy as the next few years unfolded, starring in films like "G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra," "Dear John," "The Eagle," and "Step Up 2: The Streets," but it wasn't until 2011 that I started to come around to what he was doing. "The Dilemma" is a fairly awful film, but Tatum shows up late in the movie and suddenly things start to come to life. Also that spring, "Haywire" came out, and »

20th Century Fox has officially hired Josh Zetumer, screenwriter of the recent RoboCop remake, to write the screenplay for Gambit, an X-Men spin-off feature to star Channing Tatum as the titular mutant character. The character was previously played by Taylor Kitsch in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine in perhaps what has become one of the most confused blockbuster timelines of all-time. With the announcement of a screenwriter the studio has officially attached Tatum to star and produce the feature though there is still no word on whether or not Tatum will have any kind of appearance in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse or when exactly we should even expect the film. Apocalypse director, Bryan Singer, however, previously told CinePremiere, "I'm considering Gambit and potentially a young Nightcrawler for Apocalypse... I was going to have Nightcrawler in X-Men: Days of Future Past and even wrote a scene, but I felt that we were »

20th Century Fox is officially moving forward with the Gambit movie. Word started to surface a few months ago that an X-Men spinoff featuring the card-wielding mutant was in the works with Channing Tatum set to star, and now Fox has hired screenwriter Josh Zetumer to get to work on a script while Tatum is indeed officially attached to lead the feature. This isn’t the first movement on the project, however, as Marvel Comics writer Chris Claremont apparently wrote the treatment for the Gambit movie, which will form the basis of the screenplay. More after the jump. Per Deadline, Fox has set screenwriter Josh Zetumer to pen the Gambit movie script based off of Claremont’s treatment. Zetumer only has one produced feature under his belt, this year’s RoboCop remake, but apparently Fox thinks he’s the right man to tackle Gambit. The storyline for the film is being kept under wraps, »

Ewan McGregor tells Details the Trainspotting sequel "might happen" and doesn't speak to highly of Star Wars crazies saying: I don't have any experience with them. I've never been to one of the conventions. The people I meet are the f**kers who want me to sign Star Wars photos so they can sell them on the Internet or the people at premieres who are crushing children against barriers to get me to sign their f**king picture of Obi-Wan Kenobi. They're not fans -- they're parasitical lowlifes and f**king wankers. The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have signed on to write The Lego Movie 2, though no word on whether they'll return to direct the sequel which is set for a May 25, 2018 release date. Deadline Bruce Greenwood joins Robert Redford and Cate Blanchett in Truth for writer/director James Vanderbilt (Zodiac) telling the story of »

Peter Berg and Taylor Kitsch have stuck by one another for years, beginning with Friday Night Lights and carrying through Battleship and last year’s Lone Survivor. Now they’ve teamed up for an entirely different sort of combat engagement. Kitsch stars in Berg’s first-person Call of Duty ad — a live-action affair that, like the game […]

If there's anything Peter Berg (Lone Survivor, The Rundown) knows how to do, it's throw together an entertaining action sequence. His latest feature, Lone Survivor, really turned up the tension regarding a Navy Seal team left to fend for themselves. This new ad for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare re-teams Berg with Lone Survivor star Taylor Kitsch and delivers an adrenaline-pumping, first-person action sequence set in 2059 Lagos. Pretty enjoyable for what it was, much »

Activision's tradition of live action trailers for Call Of Duty continues with this goat-kissing outing...
Although pre-orders for Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare are reportedly less than ever before in the series, leading many to proclaim that the military Fps is on a downward spiral to becoming obsolete, the next game is actually one of the more interesting iterations so far. The latest trailer shows why, in the usual over-the-top, live action manner the series has used for the last few years.
Advanced Warfare is all about the powerful mechanised suits that give soldiers superhuman abilities, well, that and Kevin Spacey, and the trailer basks in that. It stars Taylor Kitsch, with a cameo by Gone Girl star, Emily Ratajkowski, and utilises the dudebro-style that's become synonymous with the shooter to show the kinds of things you'll be able to do in the game proper.

Jon Cryer on “Two and a Half Men” gay marriage controversy: "Hopefully we haven't done something too terrible in taste” "For us it was just a fun, silly idea that some people were taking kind of seriously, so that sort of surprised us,” says Cryer of the plan for Alan to marry Ashton Kutcher’s character. "But at the same time I understand. This is a time when our nation is changing so much. And let's remember, same-sex adoption is still illegal in some states so I can see why people would be nervous about it. And as long as the fight is still being fought they have a right to be sensitive about it.” Plus: Jon Cryer recalls when Charlie Sheen began going crazy on “Men,” Sheen says "I just think it makes sense” for him to return to “Men,” Cryer recalls being labeled “The Show Killer,” and Conchata Ferrell recalls auditioning for Berta. »

Cable channel HBO has had a history of critically and commercially acclaimed shows, from The Sopranos to Game of Thrones. Adding to their ranks this past television season was the channel’s newest offering, True Detective. With Cary Fukunaga and Nic Pizzolatto respectively directing and writing each episode, fans of the show were intrigued to see what shape the show would take in season two, with leads Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, as well as Fukunaga, following through on their promise to exit the show after its first season. With Justin Lin stepping into the director’s chair for the first two episodes of the new season, the show’s casting began to take shape a while ago, with Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, and the recently confirmed Taylor Kitsch all set to play key roles. Now the show has added a number of other performers to its roster.
Headlining the new additions is Rachel McAdams. »

With the main cast nearly set for Season 2 of True Detective, the HBO series is rounding out its supporting cast, with Kelly Reilly, Michael Irby, Abigail Spencer and Leven Rambin either signed on or finalizing their deals for the heralded series.
This season takes place in California and centers on three cops, Ray Velcoro (Colin Farrell), Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch) and Ani Bezzerides (a role offered to Rachel McAdams last month), who join forces with career criminal Frank Semyon (Vince Vaughn) to unravel a conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.
Kelly Reilly will play a "self-obsessed" character named Morgan in a series regular role, while Michael Irby will play Elvis, Ani Bezzerides' partner. Abigail Spencer is playing Alicia, the survivor of a sexual assault, with Leven Rambin playing Sophia, a "beauty with a history of drug problems."
True Detective is rounding out its cast. Four more actors are near deals to join the dark crime drama. As first reported by Deadline, True Detective is looking to add: Kelly Reilly (Black Box, pictured above) in a series regular role. Plus Michael Irby (Almost Human), Abigail Spencer (Suits) and Leven Rambin (Hunger Games) for recurring roles. HBO would not confirm the new names. Meanwhile Rachel McAdams is still the top contender for the female lead, and Taylor Kitsch has pretty much confirmed he's on board too. When and if signed, the actors will join the only officially announced cast »

Sure, there are plenty of reasons why Tim Riggins has your heart, but actor Taylor Kitsch is just as sexy off screen, too. The 33-year-old Canadian actor first won over fans as tough, hunky football hero Riggins on Friday Night Lights, and over the past few years, he's been on the big screen thanks to movies like John Carter, Battleship, and Savages. Most recently, he appeared in The Normal Heart, and he's rumored to be returning to the small screen with a buzzed-about role on True Detective. In any case, now seems like the perfect time to look back at some of his sexiest snaps from over the years, including a mix of red carpet appearances and crazy-hot magazine editorials. Brace yourself - there are some really, really good ones. Source: Entertainment Weekly »
The "True Detective" Season 2 cast is growing. With its four lead stars (almost) in place - Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch have been confirmed while Rachel McAdams is said to be near a deal - the HBO crime series is close to adding another quartet of actors including Kelly Reilly ("Flight," ABC's "Black Box"), Abigail Spencer (Sundance Channel's "Rectify"), Michael Irby ("Almost Human") and Leven Rambin ("The Hunger Games"). Reilly will appear in the series regular role of a "self-possessed" character named Morgan, while the other three will enjoy recurring roles as Elvis, the partner of McAdams' detective character (Irby); the survivor of a sexual assault (Spencer); and "a beauty with a checkered past" (Rambin), according to Deadline. Both Spencer and Reilly are rumored to have met for the part that ultimately went to McAdams. As previously reported, Vaughn is set to play Frank Semyon, a criminal »
