Last year when doing press for White House Down Magic Mike himself (Channing Tatum) talked about how much he'd love to play the card throwing mutant, and 90's X-Men favorite, Gambit. He even has the cajun accent down.
Well, in Empire Magazine published earlier this week, X-Men producer, Lauren Shuler Donner, said:
"I'm dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum," Shuler Donner reveals. "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."
That's one step closer to this dream coming true. What do you think, would Tatum make a good Gambit?
