Channing Tatum is still set to play Gambit on the big screen.

That’s according to X-Men producer, Lauren Shuler Donner, who confirmed the news via a Twitter exchange.

Tatum has been confirmed to play the role of the Mutant-charmer for over a year now but little has been heard in recent times of the current stance of the film. Gambit was rumoured to appear in X-Men: Apocalypse, but that never happened. Fox removed the movie from their schedule last February and little has been discussed in regard to the movie’s status.

Thankfully, we now have some sort of confirmation.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
