Rumor has it that Channing Tatum may be making his way out of the door on 20th Century Fox's X-Men spin-off.

The Gambit movie was supposed to start shooting in October, but if Tatum leaves the project, that would obviously put it in jeopardy.

There is no word on exactly WHY Tatum would leave, or if he does indeed leave, if he would stay on as a producer or not.

This is strange, as casting reports have been coming in for the movie, even as early as two days ago, with Tatum being involved with screentests to find a female lead.

Currently the movie is slated for a release October 7th, 2016.

We'll keep you posted on updates.

Two questions for ya:

  • Are you happy or sad about the possibility of Channing Tatum leaving the Gambit movie?
  • Who else would you like to see in the role of Gambit, if Tatum does leave?
