French actress Léa Seydoux from Blue is the Warmest Color and the upcoming 24th James Bond pic, Spectre, is reported to have been offered the female lead in Fox's upcoming Gambit solo film. Something of a passion project for Channing Tatum, the actor has been attached to star since the movie was nothing more than a rumor floating around Hollywood.

Léa will reportedly be playing Bella Donna Boudreaux, the daughter of the leader of a New Orleans' assassin's guild, and Gambit's first love. The two are married to unite her father's guild and the theives' guild to which Gambit belongs. Things quickly turn south and after the nuptials the card throwing cajun must flee.



Bella Donna, of course, has her own mutant powers similar to Gambit's, plasma blasts. Will she be an aide to or antagonist of Tatum's anti-hero? The best bet is on a little of both.

We'll see how Channing's cajun accent compares to the natural accent of the French actress. If she accepts the role, this movie could sound weirder than Costner's Robin Hood.

Man, blue balls spread pretty quickly in mutants.

The Rogue Cut, if you didn't know, is a re-imagining of X-Men: Days of Future Past with Rogue's storyline left in the final product. Unfortunately Singer and Fox decided to remove her plot from the theatrical release to save time. Now all you fans of the southern belle turned mutant, can see what appears to be a brand new story.

The huge success of Deadpool, both financially and critically, came only as a result of years of preparation for Ryan Reynolds. He had been impatiently waiting and preparing since the awful X-Men: Origins to return to the role of Wade Wilson.

So it should come as no surprise that after all that, Reynolds is in no hurry to give up the role.

"I would love to play Deadpool for as long as they would let me play Deadpool," he told Variety. "We have outlines and stories for a number of different films."

Since it was announced that the newest outing for Wolverine Logan would be following in suit of Deadpool and going into R rated territory, Reynolds has been keen on the idea of doing a movie staring both the characters. Hugh Jackman, who has announced that Logan will be his last movie as Wolverine (we'll believe it when we see it), is far more uncertain.

"I'm hesitating," said Jackman, "because I could totally see how that's the perfect fit. But the timing may 
be wrong."

We're slightly more skeptical than Reynolds is regarding how well that movie would work. Wolvierine relies on a very serious atmosphere to effectively make his brooding personality work on screen. A movie in the fourth wall breaking, witty, sardonic tone of Deadpool probably just wouldn't work. It takes more than mashing two R rated superhero movies together to make a good film.

We'd definitely need to see how Logan plays out before any of it would sound like a remotely good idea.



But most of our doubt probably comes from how hard it is to forget the last time these two characters were on screen together...

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?
