After The Wrap dropped a whale of a scoop on Chris Pine playing Steve Trevor they’ve hit another home run on the FOX/Marvel front. They’re reporting that Channing Tatum may drop out of Gambit. There is apparently an ongoing issue with his deal that is causing Tatum to want to exit the project.
The Wrap states that the studio was currently in the process of casting the female lead and now they might have to find their leading man again. Sources tell them that reps for both the studio and Tatum are in active discussion trying to resolve the issue and it should be resolved soon given that filming will begin in the fall. Gambit has been a passion project for Tatum, but apparently his first directing gig might be enough for him to give this up.
How would you guys feel if Channing Tatum left Gambit?
Gambit is scheduled to hit theaters October 7, 2016!
