Just announced is news that 20th Century Fox is moving forward with a Gambit spinoff which will feature Channing Tatum as the Ragin’ Cajun. The plot will come from a treatment by Marvel writer Chris Claremont, who co-created Gambit in 1990. Fox officially hired Josh Zetumer (RoboCop) to write the screenplay.
Gambit made his first appearance in film in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, when he was played by Taylor Kitsch (True Detective, Lone Survivor). Tatum will take over Gambit beginning with the upcoming X-Men: Apocolypse set to release in 2016.
