X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner has confirmed that Channing Tatum has been cast as Gambit, a character that was previously played by Taylor Kitsch.
In the interview below, Donner was asked about who she's looking at for the character, and she confirmed that Tatum has the role, but she did not let us know which movie he has been cast in.
There are plenty of films Gambit could appear in, including [X-Men: Apocalypse](movie:1194267), an X-Force film or even his own spin-off. Donner even mentioned Deadpool as a character Fox really wants to get back on the big screen.
UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter has now confirmed that Tatum will play Gambit in X-Men: Apocalypse (where his character will be introduce), as well as his own spin-off film, which is in early development.
