We've heard for some time that X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner has been wanting to make an X-Men spin-off movie with Gambit for some time. She mentioned wanting to get Channing Tatum to play the role. Upon talking to him, it turned out he was down for the opportunity. It was then up to Shuler Donner to convince Fox to make the movie happen.

Back in May it was confirmed a Gambit movie, with Tatum, would happen.

According to Variety, we can now write down the date for the movie on our calendar...provided you have one that goes to 2016. The Gambit movie will be released on October 7, 2016. The movie will be written by Joshua Zetumer. The movie marks the eighth X-Men movie at Fox and it will follow X-Men: Apocalypse which will be released on May 27, 2016. No word whether or not the movies will be connected in any way.

Now that it's becoming more and more official and you've had time to think about it, what do you think about Channing Tatum playing the Cajun X-Man?

He cannot possibly pull off the accent.

Somehow, I completely missed the news that Gambit was getting a movie until now. Weird. Really weird. I mean I am on this site nearly every day.

I can't say I picture Tatum as Gambit, but who cares? I've found it's stupid to guess how an actor will do in a roll until you've actually seen it.

Tatum is a good actor but still not sure how I feel as him as Gambit. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, also that photoshop is hilarious

You know what ; I hated the idea of him as Gambit at first but I'm actually pretty excited for this movie and I think Tatum will do just fine with the character. Can't wait!

One day Marvel will have complete control of their own characters and we won't have to suffer any more. I may be 137 years old when it happens but i'll get what I want.

Same here. At first I didn't like the choice at all, but he seems psyched for it and the more I see from him the more I think he may be able to pull it off. That being said he's only one piece of the puzzle so we'll see when the trailers start coming out.

Yeah, well, to you all I simply state; picture Tatum saying "mon ami" just once ... nuff said.

He's far, far too "L.A" for this role. He can pull off the looks (though he's not as "wiry" or lithe as I picture Gambit to be), and has some charisma, he is still not a character actor. A gumbo with a Louisiana Cajun drawl needs to have some character acting chops. But like a preceding poster stated, let's wait and see before we all get up in arms I suppose.

Tatum will do a good enough job, acting-wise, to pull off Gambit. I mean, lame-o Taylor Kitsch pulled it off reasonably well for Pete's sake.......The real questions are: will he get lean and in-shape enough and will the writing and directing and villains be up to snuff?

I'm not a Channing Tatum fan, but his enthusiasm for the role is promising.

He probably won't. I mean Constantine 2005 was basically without the look or accent, but at least they kept the personality & cigars.

He is from Alabama he can probably do the accent. I never really liked his acting but after 22 jump street I have grown to like him.

I'm interested to see where this goes.

I was actually thinking about boycotting future x-men movies but we will see. Days of future past was seriously damn good.

I'm kind of hoping wolverine becomes a different role than he has been. (if he comes back) it's time to let the new cast shine.

@super_soldierxii:

he's actually from the south and maybe he wont have the accent to your liking (or mine) but he said he can do it and after hearing a real Cajun accent ill stick to the 90s version lol so the closer to that one as possible works for me. as for being a character actor: fox catcher. watch it if you can, he more than proves his acting chops there.

Seriously, this Gambit movie will be just as bad as Elektra. The same goes for Deadpool. 20th Century Fox also feels confident that the Fantastic Four reboot will be successful and a planned sequel has already been scheduled a release date.

Yeah, but we didn't think they could make a worse Wolverine movie after that either. And look what happened.

I'm not excited for this at all really, not the biggest fan of Tatum and honestly FOX's track record on Solo X films not that great. W:O was horrible. Wolverine was ok. That averages at about meh for solo films overall.

Eh, not the biggest Gambit fan. I'll probably still see it, regardless. Here's hoping the film comes out decent.

I have to say he seems like an odd choice. I'm not against him, and I'll see the movie regardless.

Also, does this mean that we might finally get an X-Men movie that DOESN'T have Hugh Jackman in it?
