Channing Tatum has officially signed on to the Gambit solo movie. Prior to his casting, Channing already displayed interest in playing this X-Men character, stating "There's a lot of superheroes out there. I'd like to play Gambit [...] Because I'm from New Orleans, around that area, and my dad's from New Orleans, and I like to do the Cajun accent."
Robocop screenwriter Josh Zetumer is set to write the script. The source wrote, "The script is reportedly adapting a treatment by co-creator Chris Claremont, who debuted the character with penciller Jim Lee back in 1990." No release date yet.
