The agile X-Man is eventually heading back to the big screen... and he's going to be played by Channing Tatum! While chatting with Total Film, X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed the 21 Jump Street star will step into Remy LeBeau's boots. The producer previously stated she wanted the actor for the role and, during press interviews for White House Down, Tatum also expressed great interest in the character.
Donner says Tatum's a good fit because he's a "rogue" and a "rascal" just like the card tossing X-Man. She also emphasized how Tatum knows New Orleans well and claims he can absolutely handle the action segments. You can watch the full interview here.
Viners, what do you think about Tatum as Gambit? Can you see him carrying a bo staff and strutting around in a trench coat? Speak your mind below.
