Default GAMBIT Gets A Writer; Channing Tatum OFFICIALLY Attached To Star





Gambit has been given a green light with a writer found for the movie which has Channing Tatum officially attached to star. However, before you start tearing into the project, the fact that a beloved X-Men comic book scribe has penned its treatment should help change your mind...




According to Deadline, Fox are moving ahead on the X-Men spin-off starring Gambit and have hired Robocop scribe Josh Zetumer to pen the screenplay. After being strongly rumoured and confirming that he was in talks, Channing Tatum is finally officially attached to star in the movie. You have to imagine that we'll see him make his debut in X-Men: Apocalypse, but there's no mention of that from the trade. Tatum is also producing with is Free Association partner Reid Carolin, and X-Men vets Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg. One of the most exciting parts of this news is the fact that the screenplay is based on a treatement written by legendary X-Men writer Chris Claremont, the man who created the character alongside Jim Lee in 1990! Plot details are being kept under wraps for the time being however. What do you guys think? Share your thoughts below!

I didn't have a problem with Taylor Kitsch. I bet he would have been fine to do it like in Wolverine origins but don't let the director or writing/CGI gay up the powers.

Channing Tatum Talks GAMBIT; Confirms Origin Story Plans And Possible X-MEN Ties


Talking in the latest issue of Empire Magazine, Channing Tatum (Foxcatcher) has revealed more details about his take on Gambit in the 2016 movie, shares his thoughts on the current draft of the script, and how "we're going to be changing some of the tropes of these movies.". Check it out!



2016 is a crowded and incredibly exciting year for superhero movies, but one release which is flying somewhat under the radar is Gambit, an X-Men spinoff starring Channing Tatum. The actor landed the role after making it clear in interviews how interested in the Cajun character he is, and Fox are currently in the process of hunting for a director. So, just how excited is the actor about the movie?

"I love Gambit," Tatum says in the latest issue of Empire Magazine. "I grew up in the South; my father's from Loiuisiana. We'd go to New Orleans and I heard all the dialects. It felt so different from the rest of America; it has its own ancient culture. So I identified with that. And he always felt the most real of the X-Men to me. He's kind of a tortured soul and he's not a good guy. But he's not a bad guy, either. He walks his own path. And of course he plays cards and drinks and is a martial-arts badass!" It sounds like the movie is going to be pretty faithful to the comic books then, but that's not a huge surprise what with X-Men scribe Chris Claremont writing its treatment.

As for the current status of Gambit, the actor added: "Josh Zetumer just turned in the first draft of the script, and it's killer. None of us were sure how he was going to deal with the X-Men world. But we're going to be changing some of the tropes of these movies. It's always about saving the world (Laughs), but maybe we're going to shift things a liittle but. There's so many ways you can take [an origin story]. You could do it like Batman Begins, or a different take and go the Guardians of the Galaxy route. All I can say is, I'm super excited." The chances ofGambit showing up in X-Men: Apocalypse remains to be seen, but this movie sounds like it could be a sleeper hit!

Channing Tatum’s ‘Gambit’ Movie Is Having Trouble Locking Down A Director


You could see how badly Channing Tatum wanted to play Gambit back when he first started talking about wanting the role. Now that he’s got the studio behind him and a script in hand, you’d think the production would be moving forward faster than a humming-bird flaps its wings. You’d be wrong. It seems that Tatum and the studio can’t lock down a director.
Fox is working hard on all their Marvel properties, with Bryan Singer cranking out X-Men: Apocalypse and Tim Miller and Ryan Reynolds doing wonderful looking things with Deadpool, but when it comes to Tatum’s Gambit, there’s a fly in the ointment, the production has had four directors turn down the opportunity.
Back in April it was reported that Bennett Miller (Moneyball), who worked with Tatum on Foxcatcher was offered the director’s seat, but turned it down. Next up was Darren Aronofsky (Noah, The Wrestler) who also passed. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though, there’s all kinds of reasons someone might turn down a project, scheduling, interest, or personal issues. So having two directors pass on a project isn’t very troubling in itself.
The troubling part comes when one considers the October 2016 release date because that means the production should start principal photography later this fall. There’s no script issue, Josh Zetumer (RoboCop) has already turned in his script that the studio, and Tatum like. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for a director to get his teeth into the project before shooting begins.
So we’re up to two directors passing, the next two, according to Meet the Movie Press Podcast were Gareth Evans (The Raid: Redemption, The Raid 2) and J.C. Chandor (A Most Violent Year, All is Lost). You’ve got to hand it to Tatum and Fox, they are going after some damn fine directors that keep turning them down.
Tatum has promised that Gambit will be different and unique among Super hero movies and if they land a director with the level of talent they seem to be searching for, we very well could get something to see. On the flip side of that coin, I am beginning to wonder if what we’ll end up getting is rushed and disjointed.
Who do you think should sit in Gambit’s director chair?

Rupert Wyatt Set To Direct Channing Tatum As GAMBIT

We've known that Channing Tatum (Foxcatcher, Magic Mike, the G.I. JOE movies) would be playing the crimson-eyed card-flinging mutant for a while, but now Entertainment Weekly reports that the X-Men spin-off finally has a director: Rise Of The planet Of The Apes' Rupert Wyatt!




According to EW, 20th Century Fox has hired Rupert Wyatt (The Gambler, Rise of the Planet of The Apes, The Escapist) to helm their solo Gambit movie, which will star Channing Tatum as Cajun mutant, Remy LeBeau.

This won't be the character's first live-action incarnation of course, as he was played by Taylor Kitsch in X-Men Origins: Wolverine - but fans were left underwhelmed by both the movie and that interpretation of Gambit, and have been looking forward to seeing some justice done.

Aside from the star (and now the director) we don't know a whole lot about this, but Tatum has told us to expect a different take on the typical origin story, and that the plot will play around with the usual tropes associated with superhero movies.

Channing Tatum Talks GAMBIT; Confirms No X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Appearance

When we first heard that Tatum had landed the role of Remy LeBeau in Fox's X-universe, the plan was to have him debut in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse. While taking part in a Reddit AMA ("Ask me Anything"), the actor finally confirms that's "definitely" not gonna happen...





Back when word first reached us that Fox was interested in getting Channing Tatum on board as Gambit, producer Lauren Shuler Donner suggested that X-Men: Apocalypse would be the perfect place to introduce him. Once Tatum was officially on board, that still seemed to be the plan of action - but recently the actor stated that a solo outing might be a better option than having the Cajun card-shark debut with the other mutants in a team-based movie. Now, during his Reddit AMA, he finally confirmed that we definitely won't be seeing a Gambit cameo in Apocalypse.

The other day we found out that Rise of The Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt would be helming the Gambit movie, and Tatum also comments on that, before once again expressing their intent to do something different with this character.






Are you glad we won't be seeing Gambit in X-Men: Apocalypse or do you think it's a wasted opportunity to introduce him? Be sure to click the lino below to check out Tatum's very entertaining AMA in full.

Could GAMBIT Be A Period Film?

"You never know what time [period] it's going to be set in," was the recent tease from Gambit lead Channing Tatum. Will director Rupert Wyatt and Tatum set Gambit in the '60s, '70s, '80s or '90s?




While promoting Magic Mike XXL, actor Channing Tatum spoke with CBR about his progress on the solo Gambit film from 20th Century Fox. Tatum cautioned that it's still early in the development process but he and director Rupert Wyatt are both keyed in on making the film stand out from other superhero films. Said Tatum, "We're so early in it. I really have some things in mind, but who knows -- it's pretty fluid at this point. I do believe that [director] Rupert [Wyatt] and I have the exact same vision of what we want to do. We want it to be different. I think Gambit is a really specific sort of character to not do some of these other things that some of the other superheroes kind of have to do. It's who they are. I think his character lends itself to doing something maybe slightly different. "

Wrapping up the conversation, Tatum said something rather interesting regarding the possibility of Gambit not being a present-day film. "Who knows? You never know what time [period] it's going to be set in."

Fox has already shown they're not afraid to set their X-Men films in different time periods. First Class was set in the '60s, Days of Future Past was set in the '70s and X-Men: Apocalypse is set to tackle the '80s. Could Gambit be set in the '90s? Or will Tatum and Wyatt double back and set the film in a time period that one of the X-Men films previously tackled? We should learn more details as we near SDCC 2015. Stay posted to CBM for the latest details.

Gambit Movie Logo Revealed At SDCC





To end the Fox panel, moderator Chris Hardwick gathered the cast of each film featured in the panel (Fantastic Four, Wolverine sequel, X-Men Apocalypse, Scorch Trials, and Deadpool) for a selfie with the most super heroes ever. Stan Lee and Channing Tatum also emerged to take part in the epicness.
However, as the selfie took place and the crowd of 7,000 began to make their way out of the convention center's largest room, an image was displayed on the Hall H screens which revealed the Gambit movie's logo.
See it in the image below.

Channing Tatum's Gambit Movie Will Cost A Lot More Than We Thought




With the First Class-led X-Men trilogy coming to an end, Fox is now investing in the future of its superhero franchise… literally. Deadpool is already revving up for release, a New Mutants adaptation is somewhere down the line, and a Fantastic Four-X-Men crossover is under discussion, but Gambit will cost an arm and leg for the studio to make. How much exactly? Oh, just over $150 million.

The Louisiana Economic Development’s Fastlane, a site that tracks projects filmed in the state, estimates that making Gambit will cost Fox $154,975,309. A further breakdown of the information postulates that $111,834,168 of this money will be spent within the borders of Louisiana, while $28,098,668 of that chunk will go to local employees. This is no chump change, and it gives us an idea of just how grand Fox is planning to make Gambit, something we probably weren’t expecting. And that quote isn’t even factoring in the massive paycheck that will no doubt go to Channing Tatum, the man portraying Remy LeBeau.
ADVERTISEMENT

However, if you think back to Deadpool’s Comic-Con debut, fans were floored by Ryan Reynolds and his performance as the R-rated merc with the mouth. This film hits a few of the same notes as Gambit — a standalone X-Men film about a popular rogue mutant portrayed by a well-known actor with a substantial fan base. With the current line-up of X-Men seemingly switching up — Jennifer Lawrence will probably leave the franchise after Apocalypse, while the film introduces younger versions of well-known mutants — there’s no reason why the combined force of Ryan Reynolds and Channing Tatum couldn’t carry Fox's mutant franchise forward. But that means Fox has to make Gambit worthwhile.

Gambit is already said to have gone into pre-production, while principal photography is slated to kick off this October 13, running through February 12, 2016. Rupert Wyatt of Rise of the Planet of the Apes and The Gambler is directing the film for Fox. When Gambit was first announced, the original idea was for him to be featured in a cameo appearance in X-Men: Apocalypse (in theaters on May 27, 2016) before headlining his own film. Tatum has seemingly debunked this story, though his presence at Comic-Con raised some questions. Plot details for Gambit are currently unknown, but Tatum recently confirmed that it will be an origin story, teasing that there are many different ways to handle that. It’s unclear whether it will connect to the continuity of the X-Men trilogies, and the actor also said that this film aims to change a lot of those common superhero movie tropes. Deadpool, for one, will likely stay in his own world (for now), and yet that's what we thought about the Fantastic Four and now there's hope for Fox's own shared cinematic universe. We shall see.

‘Gambit’ Film Gets a Casting Call With Character Descriptions



Fox is firing up the preproduction for Gambit, an X-Men-franchise film set to start Channing Tatum in the title role. Taking what had been established in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and likely throwing it all out the window (along with that film’s Deadpool persona, even though that character was played by Ryan Reynolds and will be played by Reynolds again in the Deadpool solo film), the new solo-star film should start shooting in the last few months of this year. Today we get word that a casting call has gone out for several of the film’s main characters.
According to Showbiz411.com, a 20th Century Fox film called Chess sent out the casting call, but given the fact that the film is shooting in New Orleans and that there has been no other advance-press info on a movie by that title, we’re all making the leap and figuring that this is, in fact, info for Gambit (a “gambit” is a risky move that a player might make in a game of strategy and chance, like…chess. Get it?). As it was given, here is the casting call:
  • Louis– Male, any ethnicity, 40s-50s. Elegant and intelligent. An appealing entrepreneur with an unexpected dark side.
  • Vera– Female, any ethnicity, mid 20s – early 30s. Beautiful, smart, tough, fiery and unpredictable.
  • Wes– Male, any ethnicity, mid 20s – mid 30s. Aspirational but weak minded. Soulful and sensitive.
  • Fritz– Male, any ethnicity, 40s – 50s. A professional thief. Charismatic con-artist. Warm hearted but untrustworthy.
  • Nash– Male, any ethnicity, mid 20s – early 30s. A potent threat. Heir to his mother’s business. Malevolent.
  • Willhelm– Male, any ethnicity, 30s. Dangerous street criminal. Protective and loyal to his family. Intensely loyal and violent.
  • Gary– Male, any ethnicity, mid 20s – early 30s. A little simple; dim-witted and passive.
  • Nonna—Female, any ethnicity, mid 20s – 30 years old. Uptight, corporate, vicious, sexual.
  • Joe– Male, any ethnicity, 30s. He’s a gun for hire. He is the black sheep of his family. Not from good breeding but from a working class family.
  • Ben–Male, any ethnicity, 20s. Just reaching adulthood. A street kid, a disaffected outsider, an orphan.
  • Boris–Male, Hispanic, 20s. Charming, handsome, and dangerous.
  • Clarissa– Female, mixed race, 10 – 12 years old. Ethereal and other worldly. Very expressive.
  • Wolfgang– Male, authentic French, 40s. A French criminal. Must speak fluent French.
  • Howard– Male, Caucasian. 50s. A refined European mobster who speaks fluent French.
A fairly sizable cast of main characters, by the looks of it. Gambit’s budget is reported at $150 million, so odds are good that at least a few of these characters will be played by well-known stars. Let us know in the comments: do any of these descriptions make you think of a certain actor/actress for a specific part?

Channing Tatum Superhero Movie ‘Gambit’ in Jeopardy as Deal Unravels (Exclusive)



Getty Images/Marvel

Rupert Wyatt is directing the comic book film, which 20th Century Fox hyped earlier this month at Comic Con

Channing Tatum’s “Gambit” deal is in jeopardy of falling apart and he is planning to exit the comic book project at 20th Century Fox, an individual with knowledge of the situation has told TheWrap.
The studio had been in the process of testing young actresses to star alongside Tatum, including Lea Seydoux, but insiders suggest that director Rupert Wyatt will soon have to find a new leading man.
It is unclear whether Tatum and his producing partner Reid Carolin plan to remain involved in a producing capacity, or whether Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner will move forward on their own.
Representatives for 20th Century Fox and Tatum could not immediately be reached for comment.

One individual close to the project told TheWrap that Tatum’s reps are still in active discussions with the studio but acknowledged that “something is up.” The situation will have to be resolved quickly, as “Gambit” is slated for release on Oct. 7, 2016.
Tatum recently appeared at Comic Con to hype his turn as New Orleans thief Remy LeBeau, aka Gambit. The character was originally played by Taylor Kitsch in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.”

“Gambit” has long been a passion project for Tatum, whose attachment encouraged 20th Century Fox to ramp up production. However, Tatum also has larger ambitions, which may play a role in the current situation.

There are multiple news sites picking up the same. My guess is it's legit.

Channing Tatum Stays Onboard Gambit Movie




Fret not, Gambit followers, as Channing Tatum has signed a deal to star in Gambit.
Contradicting rumors earlier this week that Tatum had walked away from a Gambit solo movie, the Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street actor will indeed bring Remy LeBeau to life as planned. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tatum and movie studio 20th Century Fox really did hit a rough patch in negotiations earlier this week, but the two have seemed to work past it.
According to The Reporter’s inside sources, the friction stemmed from Fox’s extended expectations of Tatum. As they made Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine a tentpole in the X-Men movie franchise, 20th Century Fox wanted Tatum to star as Gambit in several X-Universe films. Whether or not Tatum agreed to a multi-picture deal was not disclosed, however. Additionally, backend compensation also slowed negotiations down, though it is unclear at this time who was dissatisfied with the deal on the table.
But regardless of the two hangups Tatum and Fox hit, both parties must have reached a deal that satisfied both of their needs.

Frontrunners For 'Bella Donna Boudreaux' In GAMBIT Revealed

Now that Channing Tatum is officially signed on to star in Rupert Wyatt's Gambit, the hunt for the movie's female lead has begun! They'll be testing for the role this week, and among the trio are a Mission: Impossible star, a Bond Girl, and a bride from Mad Max: Fury Road...



According to Deadline, 20th Century Fox are now taking aim at finding a female lead for Gambit. Channing Tatum very nearly dropped out of the project recently, but after getting a pay increase from the studio, he soon signed on the dotted line! So, who will be starring alongside the Magic Mike and Jump Street star in the X-Men spinoff and who are they playing? Apparently the character is Bella Donna Boudreaux, a Jim Lee creation who was the daughter of the leader of the New Orleans Assassins' Guild, a group Gambit ends up clashing with as a member of the Thrives guild.

Those currently in the mix to play her are Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation), Lea Seydoux (Spectre), and Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road). That's an interesting mixture, and it'll be hard to complain about whoever they end up choosing. I'd personally prefer to see Ferguson pay Captain Marvel to be honest! What do you guys think? As always, let us know your thoughts below.

GAMBIT: Rebecca Ferguson Out Of The Running For 'Bella Donna Boudreaux' Role


It seems the female lead role in Channing Tatum's Gambit movie will be contested between Lea Seydoux and Abbey Lee, as Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation's Rebecca Ferguson has decided to sign on to star in an adaptation of The Girl On The Train, instead...




After her impressive turn as a British Intelligence Agent in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, many fans hoped to see Rebecca Ferguson land the role of Bel Boudreaux alongside Channing Tatum's Remy Lebeau in the Gambit movie, but alas it wasn't to be. Deadline reports that the Swedish actress has taken herself out of the running to play Anna in the Tate Taylor-directed adaptation of Paula Hawkins' novel, The Girl On The Train, with Emily Blunt.

This means that - unless another contender emerges - the role of the daughter of the leader of the New Orleans Assassins' Guild will be played by either Lea Seydoux (Spectre), or Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road). The site makes no mention of which one might be the frontrunner.

Lea Seydoux Lands 'Bella Donna Boudreaux' Role In GAMBIT


After Rebecca Ferguson dropped out, the shortlist for the female lead role in Channing Tatum's Gambit movie was left to Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road) and Lea Seydoux (Spectre). Now, it seems the latter has been offered the part of Bella Donna Boudreaux...




According to Deadline, Lea Seydoux has been offered the role of Belladonna Boudreaux in the Rupert Wyatt directed X-Men spinoff, Gambit, next to Channing Tatum in the title role.

Seydoux, Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road), and Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) were all reportedly in contention, but when the latter dropped out to take a lead role in The Girl On The Train it became a two horse race, which the French actress evidently won.

Bella Boudreax starts out as Remy LeBeau's (Tatum) childhood sweetheart, but the two later become enemies when she takes over from her father as the leader of the Assassin's Guild, and Remy heads up the Thieve's Guild.

Director Rupert Wyatt Exits Channing Tatum's Gambit




Deadline is reporting that Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Gambler) is dropping out of the Gambit solo movie, starring Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street, Magic Mike) and Lea Seydoux (SPECTRE).
Why the sudden exit? Gambit was supposed to begin filming in November, but was then pushed back to March and for that reason Wyatt is no longer able to direct. He apparently has a prior commitment that is conflicting with the shooting schedule, though, nobody know what that other project is at this time.
Wyatt issued a statement: "I was very much looking forward to working with my friend Channing and the team at Fox, but regrettably a push in the start date now conflicts with another project. I thank them for the opportunity, and I know that Gambit will make a terrific film."
Deadline added, "Fox will move quickly to put a director in place, and they are still fully committed to the film."

Anna Paquin Confirms That She Won't Appear As 'Rogue' In The GAMBIT Movie


Because of their romantic history in the Marvel comics, many fans assumed we might see Rogue pop up alongside Channing Tatum's Remy LeBeau in Fox's Gambit flick. Well, if the character is set to appear, she won't be played by Anna Paquin...




Much like Cyclops, many feel that Rogue got the short end of the stick in Fox's X-Men franchise. In the comics she's a kick-ass Southern Belle who can fly and has super-strength, and in the films she's... Anna Paquin hiding under a hood. To be fair, despite a radical departure from the comics the movie version of Rogue worked well for the story and themes explored in the first film, and Paquin did a good job - but then the character all but disappeared from the sequels.

Fox had the chance to right some of those wrongs by making Rogue a main character in the Gambit movie and bringing one of the most popular superhero love stories to the screen while they were at it, but if the following Tweet from the former True Blood actress is anything to go by, that's not gonna happen.


Of course, there's always the chance Rogue will appear and has simply been recast, but that seems very unlikely. Are you guys disappointed that we won't be seeing Paquin reprise this role for Gambit? Sound off below.

Details Emerge Regarding Why Rupert Wyatt Exited 'Gambit'




Last week it was revealed that Rupert Wyatt had exited the director's chair of the upcoming 20th Century Fox Gambit solo film. When this news broke, both the parties had claimed that the reason for the director's departure from the film was due to script complications that led to an increased budget. This increased budget in turn would delay production and would end up conflicting with one Wyatt's future commitments. Well, it seems that may not have been the actual case.
THR reports that even though the studio got along well with the director, he had an entirely different vision for what he wanted to do with the project. Due to how much they were putting into the film, the studio wasn't about to let him have as much creative control as he desired which led to the director walking away from the project. Not something unusual at all and after this year's Fantastic Four box-office fiasco...can you really blame Fox?
Gambit is currently set to hit theaters on October 7, 2016.

EDGE OF TOMORROW Director Doug Liman Being Courted For GAMBIT


20th Century Fox and Channing Tatum may be closing in on a replacement for Rupert Wyatt, as reports are coming in that the Gambit actor is keen on Bourne Identity and Edge Of Tomorrow director Doug Liman to helm the X-Men spinoff...





Gambit hasn't had a very easy time of it so far, and the most recent blow to the production saw its director Rupert Wyatt (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes) walk - allegedly due to clashes with the studio over the direction he wanted to take the story. Well their luck may be about to change if star and producer Channing Tatum has his way.

Deadline reports that "recent Hollywood chatter has Doug Liman on an inside track to direct Channing Tatum in Gambit," with The Wrap's Jeff Sneider chiming in with the Tweet below.


Quote:
Jeff Sneider @TheInSneider True that Channing Tatum has been courting Doug Liman to direct GAMBIT. We'll see if he goes for it though...
Obviously that doesn't mean he'll take the gig, but you never know. Liman's sci-fi action flick Edge Of Tomorrow was very popular indeed, so there's likely a lot of you CBMers that hope he signs on to bring the Ragin' Cajun to the screen for his first solo movie outing.
