For a long time they were preparing the Gambit movie starring Channing Tatum, but it never made it to theaters.
When the film rights of the mutants of Marvel were in the hands of FOX, some movies were planned that never came to fruition. Since when it was released dead pool (2016) and it was a tremendous success, new projects like Gambit from channing tatum. The story was reviewed by several writers and some directors were hired as Rupert Wyatt. But when Disney I buy FOX looks like it killed the movie for good.
Now channing tatum has revealed why they never made the Gambit movie: “The studio really didn’t want me and Reid Carolin to run it. They wanted anyone but us, essentially, because we had never directed anything.”
“You would call it extravagant in your description. Our Gambit was simply the coolest person. He could pull off anything. Most of the superheroes, their outfits are utilitarian. Batman has his belt. Gambit is like: No, this shit is just fly, bro! This shit walked the catwalk in Paris last year. She’s just wearing things that are cool because she loves fashion.”
“Once Gambit left, he was very traumatized. I turned off my Marvel machine. I haven’t been able to watch any of the movies. I loved that character. I was too sad. It was like losing a friend because I was so ready to play it«. confessed channing tatum.
It does not seem that those responsible for Marvel Studios are interested in making the film.
When Marvel Studios regained the rights of the mutants they said they would reboot them all. But since we never got to see Gambit from channing tatum in the cinema, maybe one day I will return to the project. Although for now it does not seem that this is within his plans.
while the actor channing tatum will premiere dog (2022) the first film that he himself has directed with his friend Caroline Reid, forming the tandem that was precisely going to be in charge of Gambit. So we can get an idea of what they would have achieved if the movie studio had given it the green light.
