Channing Tatum May Be Dropping Out of ‘Gambit’

What what what! Channing Tatum has allegedly backed out of the X-Men spinoff movie, Gambit. That’s right, Marvel loses a beefcake and DC gains one (Chris Pine). This is the closest I’ve followed superheroes in my life.

Tatum already had some screen tests with various female leads including Lea Seydoux and was seemingly very involved in the movie’s production. Maybe he just wasn’t meshing with the ladies and decided to call it quits. HAHAHAHAHA RIGHT. JUST KIDDING.

What would possibly be a bigger blow to the film, Tatum and his creative partner Reid Carolin, were set to produce the Josh Zetumer screenplay. Rupert Wyatt of Rise of the Planet of the Apes was only recently signed on as director. Whether Tatum will stick around to raise his movie baby if he walks out on starring, probably just to go get a pack of cigarettes before disappearing for an undetermined amount of time, remains uncertain.

At current, we-don’t-know-if-Tatum-is-deadbeating status, Gambit will be released October 7, 2016, following other X-Men spinoffs slated release for 2016: Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse.
