Put Down Your Pitchforks Everyone- Channing Tatum As Gambit Is Happening

I know some (some) of you were in an uproar about Channing Tatum’s Gambit movie possibly falling apart the last possible second and the star of the movie was ready to walk.Well fear not as it looks like the actor and FOX were able to come to an agreement. Reports say that there were definitely some bumps in the road but it all falls under normal parameters when dealing with top level movie stars.

One of the bigger sticking points were the amount of films that Tatum would conceivably be signing up for, including crossovers and the like. Hugh Jackman has made a career off of playing Wolverine for over a decade but had been able to re-up his deal multiple times. Channing could have been looking at a similar arrangement right off the bat with no additional negotiation. Sources also claim that backend compensation was also a heated subject. C-Tates has GOT to get his!

As with most dealings, we will never know the full story but the good news is that we can all sleep soundly knowing that Channing Tatum is going to play Gambit in another X-Men related movie.
