Léa Seydoux Offers Update On Her GAMBIT Casting

Has Spectre leading lady Léa Seydoux accepted 20th Century Fox's offer to portray Belladonna Boudreaux opposite Channing Tatum in the Gambit big-screen adaptation? Hit the jump and check out her response, albeit one delivered hours prior to the recent director news.



Back in August, when Rupert Wyatt was attached to direct Gambit, Spectre star Léa Seydoux was offered the female lead role of Belladonna Boudreaux opposite Channing Tatum's Remy LeBeau. Earlier yesterday, just hours before news broke that Doug Liman will now take over the director's chair, the French actress was asked for an update on her casting in the Fox Marvel adaptation.

"Listen, no, I haven't signed for Gambit," Léa Seydoux revealed to French website AlloCiné. Obviously, Gambit was in a troubling state when this interview was conducted given Rupert Wyatt had abandoned the project in September, so the actress implied that is the reason she's yet to sign on officially. "I just can't make any official announcement, I don't have information," she added.

Nonetheless, with Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman in final negotiations to helm Gambit, development on Channing Tatum's passion project can now move forward with just enough time to meet its October 7, 2016, release date. And hopefully someone asks Léa Seydoux for another update while she's currently out and about promoting Spectre. Anyhow, we'd like to thank Maria for the transcription of the abovementioned interview, which you can watch in French below.
