Remember months back when a half serious interview with Channing Tatum discussing Gambit made headlines? Well, looks as if that interview was taken serious by someone at FOX and now a producer from X-MEN has her eye on the Tatum.

Now, as hesitant as I am about Tatum filling Gambit’s shoes, I have to admit the concept has potential. The comment came from Lauren Schuler Donner, who says,  “I’m dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum.” She explains the idea as a small action film about, “a thief in New Orleans, it’s a whole different story. He’s on board, and I have to get the studio on board. How can anyone resist Channing? He’s such a sweetheart.”

He is pretty dreamy… Wait, I mean… Yes, the concept sounds intriguing. Seriously though, a part of me is rather skeptical but intrigued if the Tatum can pull this off.  Taylor Kitsch did fine but just ended up in the worst film possible. Why not give that guy another chance?

What can be deduced from all this is a Gambit film is now being discussed and is more possible than ever before. But should Channing Tatum play the role of the Cajun hero?
