Lauren Shuler Donner On The Possibility Of Channing Tatum Starring In A GAMBIT Movie

Not too long ago, 21 Jump Street and G.I. Joe: Retaliation star Channing Tatum revealed that he would love to play Gambit on the big screen. Now, X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner reveals that she's on board with the idea and now plans to convince Fox to give it the green light...


After being played by Taylor Kitsch in the forgettable X-Men Origins: Wolverine, there's been no sign of Gambit on the big screen since. However, after Channing Tatum recently put himself forward for the role, Empire Online caught up with producer Lauren Shuler Donner and asked her for her thoughts on his comments. "I'm dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum. 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." Could it happen? It certainly sounds like it may be, ahem, on the cards!
