Channing Tatum Gambit Movie Set For 2016



The Channing Tatum Gambit movie is now official as Fox Studios has announced it will have an October 7, 2016 release date.

Tatum will star as the mutant with the power to manipulate kinetic energy and is first expected to appear in Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse, which hits four months earlier on May 27, 2016.

Channing Tatum has been involved with the role for quite a while and most recently said Gambit would be "something different" suggesting it would be more of an anti-hero movie than a superhero film.

The writer on Gambit is Joshua Zetumern who recently wrote the 2014 RoboCop movie.

Channing Tatum has Jupiter Ascending coming out next month as well and is involved in the sequels to Jump Street and Magic Mike.

Tatum's name also surfaced with the Sony leaks where it was stated the actor is interested in a Ghosbusters spinoff with fellow actor Chris Pratt.

Fox also announced the third Planet of the Apes movie will be delayed a year to July 14, 2017.

Fox's Fantastic Four 2 previously held the July 14, 2017 release, which will now be moved up six weeks to June 2, 2017.

Fox also gave the Assassin's Creed movie a December 21, 2016 release which will star Michael Fassbender, with Justin Kurzel directing.

The P.T Barnum movie starring Hugh Jackman opens on December 25, 2016, and The Mountain Between Us starring Charlie Hunnam and Rosamund Pike will open February 10, 2017.
