ACCORDING to movie news sources, Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street star Channing Tatum is reportedly dropping out of the FOX produced Gambit X-Men Spin-off project. Gambit, was scheduled to begin production later this year in line for an October 7, 2016 release. Neither Tatum or 20th Century Fox have commented on this unconfirmed report.
This may come as a complete shock to fans considering that Tatum, was all smiles and seemed fully invested in the project at this year's SDCC. He was scheduled to both star and act as a producer on Gambit. He appeared very enthused alongside the rest of the actors featured at 20th Century Fox's Marvel panel at San Diego Comic-Con. It's unclear whether Tatum will remain as a producer.
