Channing Tatum As X-Men’s Gambit? Maybe

“X-Men” producer Lauren Shuler Donner has revealed that she’s ‘dying’ to make a movie about X-Men mutant Gambit with Channing Tatum in the role. Tatum previously revealed that he would love to play the role.

Speaking with Empire, Donner says: “I’m dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum. 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.”

Donner was involved in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” which starred Taylor Kitsch in the small supporting role of Gambit.
