Channing Tatum’s Gambit movie is moving ahead

November 1st, 2014 by Marc Comments

It looks like things are progressing nicely with the Channing Tatum Gambit movie.

Robocop co-writer Josh Zetumer has been hired by Fox to script the X-Men spinoff and Tatum will not just star but also co-produce along with Reid Carolin, The Donners Company’s Lauren Shuler Donner, and Genre Films’ Simon Kinberg.


Interestingly though, the script will be based on a story by Gambit co-creator Chris Claremont. Gambit has previously been on the big screen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and was played by Taylor Kitsch.

Word is the movie will follow-on from X-Men: Apocalypse and Gambit may well be briefly introduced there before the spin-off happens.

More as we get it folks..

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….
