Entertainment Weekly are reporting that Rupert Wyatt will be helming the Gambit movie. Wyatt is probably best known for his work on Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes.
Remy LeBeau made his first film appearance in the now defunct X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Taylor Kitsh is out and the part will now be played by Magic Mike himself, Channing Tatum.
Tatum will also serve as a producer for the film along with Reid Carolin, Lauren, Simon Kinberg and, Schuler Donner.
Since comic book nerds got so outraged by the casting of Wolverine in 1999, I hold of judging any X-Men casting until I’ve seen it.
Gambit is out in the UK on 7 October 2016.
