Channing Tatum Is On Board For A Gambit Movie, Says ‘X-Men’ Producer

While promoting White House Down last year, Channing Tatum expressed interest in playing X-Men‘s Gambit. Here’s the full quote, transcribed by /film:

“I would like to play Gambit. Gambit’s my favorite. I’m from New Orleans, around that area. My dad’s from New Orleans, and I like to do a Cajun accent. I could do it for real. No knock on Taylor Kitsch, though, ’cause I actually like his Gambit, but I’ve always lived around Cajun people. […] Gambit was always like the woman-loving, cigarette-smoking, drinking [guy]. He was the punk rock of all the superheroes. He’s a thief. He kind of rode the line.”

Burnsy already made the case for why this needs to happen (holla atcha boy), but this story just took a turn for the awesome. X-Men: Days Of Future Past producer Lauren Shuler Donner tells Empire (via The Playlist) that she wants to make a Channing Tatum led Gambit movie happen.

“I’m dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum,” Shuler Donner reveals. “That doesn’t have to be a great big movie. It’s a thief in New Orleans, it’s a whole different story. [Channing Tatum]’s on board, and I have to get the studio on board. How can anyone resist Channing? He’s such a sweetheart.”

If our C-Tates tag is any indication, the answer to, “How can anyone resist Channing?” is because they hate joy. Who could resist this face?
