Apparently X-Men producer, Lauren Shuler Donner, is 'dying' to make a stand-alone Gambit movie with Channing Tatum in the lead role.
It's also been revealed that Tatum would love to play the role, which was previously played by Taylor Kitsch in X-Men Origins: Wolverine in 2009.
"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."
My opinion: Please, please, please anyone but Channing Tatum. I think he is severely overrated and has no real acting abilities.
