Solo movie starting from scratch, release date to be determined

Channing Tatum confirms that 20th Century Fox's Gambit solo film is now undergoing a script rewrite/starting over from scratch. "By the end of the movie, I'd put on like 35 or 40 pounds". Considering both Tatum's clout as a box office star and the beloved nature of the Gambit character, there's a very clear desire from both Tatum and Fox to make this movie happen.

There's been talk of a solo movie focusing on popular X-Man Gambit for years now. In every story, I have a personal connection... While they are now one of the strongest couples in Hollywood, things didn't get off to the best start when Channing chose to try and throw Jenna off the proposal scent. He confirmed that the obstacles to making the film have ended up helping the creative team to find the right tone.

"I think we got lucky", Tatum explained, "We got hit with some setbacks and it was all for a good reason".

With the massive success of Deadpool and Logan (they collectively raked in over $1 billion for Fox), Gambit will likely follow suit, with an edgier, more mature storyline.

Of course, as we know, he more than made it up to her when he pulled off a super romantic Maui proposal - complete with their closest friends on hand - not long after. We were trying to do something that this genre of movie hasn't seen before.

Logan Lucky doesn't crackle like some of Soderbergh's previous heist films, notably the Ocean's Eleven trilogy and 1998's marvelous Out of Sight, but it does operate with the kind of low hum of an expertly crafted engine, moving us exactly where we need to go while letting us revel in anything that seems slightly too ridiculous in favor of just having fun. We kept running into the same problems, and then Deadpool and Logan came through and kicked the doors down.
