Channing Tatum Says LOGAN And DEADPOOL's Genre-Bending Success Has Fox Rethinking GAMBIT

Channing Tatum says the success of Ryan Reynold's Deadpool and Hugh Jackman's Logan has led to a new approach on Gambit. But does that mean the Cajun thief's solo film outing will be rated R?

Despite Foxs SDCC panel focusing on Kingsman: The Golden Circle and not featuring any updates on Deadpool 2, New Mutants or X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Yahoo caught up with Tatum after the panel and focused extensively on what's happening with Gambit.

Said Tatum on the film's current status, “We got really lucky. We had a first draft it was good but we were coming to at a time at that creative phase of [the X-Men], where these movies went through a bit of a paradigm shift, where the X-Men movies and the superhero movies with Logan and Deadpool really broke down a lot of doors for us. We were trying to do some things that we actually weren’t allowed to do, and they just smashed down the doors, so we’re giving it a bit of a rethink.

But should fans take the influence of Deadpool and Logan as a sign that Gambit will be rated R?

"We’re not quite going there, because I enjoyed Gambit as a kid so I don’t want to rule out PG-13."

Since being formally announced in 2014, the Gambit movie Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman were both attached to direct but dropped out due to scheduling conflicts.  The latest rumor is that Frank Darabont will rewrite and direct the film.  In 2015,  Léa Seydoux was attached to play Assassins Guild member Bella Donna Boudreaux  but it's currently unknown if she's still attached.
