Channing Tatum May Be Leaving X-Men Spin-Off 'Gambit'

July 29, 2015


Well, looks like Gambit may no longer have a male stripper hidden under that trench coat. According to The Wrap, the X-Men spin-off movie Gambit is now close to falling apart as star Channing Tatum is rumored to be exiting the project. It's said Tatum's reps remain "in active discussions with the studio" to resolve the issue, but whatever is going to happen needs to happen soon if 20th Century Fox is going to meet their October 2016 release. Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt is directing, so the option remains to just have a motion-captured Andy Serkis mimic Tatum's simian nature.
