SDCC 2017: Channing Tatum Confirms GAMBIT Is Still A Go
Comicbook.com interviewed actor Channing Tatum at San Diego Comic-Con where the actor was on hand promoting his latest film, Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Comicbook.com asked Tatum if he was still attached to star in 20th Century Fox’s Gambit.
Tatum gave a positive response about the film saying;
“Yeah, of course. We’re working on it right now.”
The X-Men spinoff has been stalled for a few years due to directors dropping out (Rupert Wyatt, Doug Lyman) and 20th Century Fox completely removing the film from its future release schedule. X-Men producer Hutch Parker recently confirmed that Gambit is in active development, but that director Doug Liman dropped out earlier in the year because he couldn’t find a deep connection with the film.
“You know, it’s a crowded field of superhero films so the challenge for Gambit or any of those other movies is finding its unique space and its unique take”
“But, yeah, I think Simon Kinberg, who is producing it, is a great producer and he’ll create something great out of it.”
