Back in September, Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street, The Lego Movie) spoke about his desire to portray the X-Men's Cajun card-thrower Gambit on the big screen (a role previously filled by Taylor Kitsch in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and now veteran X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner has spoken briefly about the possibility, stating that she's "dying" to make it a reality.

"I'm dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum," Shuler Donner told Empire Online. "That doesn't have to be a great big movie. It's a thief in New Orleans, it's a whole different story. He's on board, and I have to get the studio on board. How can anyone resist Channing? He's such a sweetheart."
