The universe of the mutants has so many interesting characters that gives itself to innumerable films. This line is immense and is endowed with great figures like Wolverine, Professor Xavier, Deadpool, Storm and Phoenix. However, there is one member that Hollywood has not shown in its fullness. ‘ Gambit ‘. That is why Gore Verbinski , known for being the director of the first three films of ‘ Pirates of the Caribbean ‘ and ‘ The Lone Ranger ‘, could have been interested in the history of this card-throwing mutant.
Apparently Verbinski has been talking to Channing Tatum about the film with intentions to participate in it according to reports The Hollywood Reporter . Other professionals such as Doug Liman and Rupert Wyatt wanted to enter the world of X-Men through this character, but left the project because they were already involved in other works.
Daniel Craig is in talks to play Nathaniel Essex , aka Mr. Sinister, in ‘Gambit’ and also in other X-Men films .
Love for Gambit
Despite the circumstances, Channing Tatum still does not surrender. Gambit has come to attract so much his attention that he is unable to abandon the idea of not carrying out his own film. The mutant of New Orleans that manipulates the kinetic energy and that uses as a weapons a deck of cards and a cane has him completely dazzled. In the production of the film are also added Simon Kinberg , a regular in the X-Men saga, and Reid Carolin, with whom he has collaborated on several occasions.
Still, it will not take long to see more stories from the saga as Fox has prepared juicy 2018 releases like ‘ The New Mutants ‘ (April 13), ‘ X-Men: Dark Phoenix ‘ (November 2) and the awaited ‘ Deadpool 2 ‘ (June 1).
