Women love him. Men love him. Pretty much everyone loves him. Action star, comedic actor, dancer and all-around renaissance man Channing Tatum was announced to play beloved X-Men character Gambit earlier this year. It has now been announced that the card-slinging Cajun will be getting his own spinoff film, with Tatum in the starring role. The Magic Mike star gained immense popularity through films like Step Up, She's the Man and, more recently, 22 Jump Street. Gambit, of course, had a small role in X-Men Origins: Wolverine back in 2009, but many fans feel the film did not do the character justice. With his southern roots and smooth talking, hopefully Tatum will finally do Remy LeBeau some justice.
