The 22 Jump Street star continues to talk about playing Gambit in an X-Men movie, despite having no deal in place yet.
With the 22 Jump Street actor nearing a deal to join Fox’s X-Men franchise, Tatum makes it clear he wants Gambit to stand out first as a solo act.
The actor hasn’t signed on to appear in X-Men: Apocalypse just yet, but he assures “we’re on the one-yard line.”
The actor came close to playing Gambit in Brett Ratner’s 2006 film, but then the character was written out of the script.
The Friday Night Lights actor says he would be up for a Gambit movie, but has no problem with Tatum taking over the role.
X-Men franchise producer Lauren Shuler Donner confesses, “I’m dying to do a Gambit movie with Channing Tatum,”
