Gambit is coming to the big screen on October 7th with Channing Tatum starring as the card slinging, slick talking, young Cajun mutant.
This explains Sunday night’s hair choice at the Golden Globes.

When Tatum officially signed on to play the original Remy boy, some comic book fans were skeptical to say the least. Early production hit a snag when director Rupert Wyatt, also behind the lens for Rise of the Planet of the Apes, backed out deciding the project wasn’t a fit for him.
The Marvel film is now back on track with Doug Liman, director of Bourne Identity, at the helm. Gambit is scheduled to begin shooting in Remy’s hometown of New Orleans, this March. Some of us blerds are still warming up to the idea of “Magic Mike” dipping into southern gentleman swag with his best NOLA accent. Only time will tell if 20th Century Fox made the right casting choice for this X-Men spinoff.
