Is Channing Tatum out as Gambit?

The Wrap is reporting exclusively that Channing Tatum’s deal to play the mutant Gambit in the titular movie (and potential new franchise) might be unraveling at 20th Century Fox.

Gambit and its star were highly touted at the recent San Diego Comic Con, with Tatum appearing at the X-Men: Apocalypse panel and taking photos with the franchise stars. He and his partner Reid Carolin are set to produce the film, but that may also be in jeopardy.

A solution needs to happen quickly – Gambit is slated for an October 2016 release.

No word was given for the reasons for the possible split, so stay tuned for more information about the future of Gambit. And as for replacements: what’s Taylor Kitsch doing after True Detective?
