Channing Tatum "Dying" To Play GAMBIT; Negotiations On 1-YD Line
X-Men: Days of Future Past hasn't even been released yet, but its sequel X-Men: Apocalypse is already making headlines. In an interview with THR, Channing Tatum talks Gambit and reveals that while he hasn't officially signed on yet, he should be doing so shortly. Check it out!
A few weeks ago news broke that Jupiter Ascending star Channing Tatum would star as the Ragin' Cajun Gambit in X-Men: Apocalypse and possibly in a future solo film. It was assumed that after producer Lauren Shuler Donner broke the news herself that his casting was official, but that might not be the case. It doesn't seem to be something to worry about though, with Tatum describing talks as being on the 1-yd line. We should expect something more definitive when X-Men: Apocalypse goes into pre-production later this year.

"I hope to be joining -- everything's not done yet," he told THR on May 19. "I've obviously been in talks, and we're on the one yard line," he added.
"I'm always afraid of being like, 'Yes it's totally happening' and then it doesn't happen."
"I'm dying to do it," he said, of the sequel, which would follow the latest film X-Men: Days of Future Past, hitting theaters May 23.
