Channin Tatum nevertheless agreed to play Gambit in the movie dedicated to this superhero. This is reported by The Hollywood Reporter with reference to its sources at 20th Century Fox.
It is argued that at some point the negotiations between the parties really reached a critical point, but then all the contradictions were settled. One of the stumbling blocks was the financial terms of the agreement. The deal involves the actor in a series of movies with Gambit. In some of them, Tatum will not only play the title role, but will also act as a producer. Rise of the Planet of the Apes creator Rupert Wyatt has been appointed director of the first solo movie.
The premiere of "Gambit" is announced for October 7, 2016, and therefore, the shooting of the picture should begin in the near future. Recall that Channing Tatum took part in the Comic-con 2015 festival as a performer of the role of Gambit. It is possible that his character will be featured in X-Men: Apocalypse.
Note that the actor's shooting schedule for the coming years is very tight. In December 2015, viewers will be able to see him in the Hateful Eight western, and in 2016, in the drama Ave Caesar.
