If they really want to go with a 17, 18 or 19 year old Jean, Scott or Ororo; then just place the movie in the late 1980's.
As for Gambit, I think it's safe to say that he was early 20's to early 30's in the mid-80's (based on what we saw in Origins). So it's kid of difficult to get Gambit and Rogue together, especially with Bobby in the way.
IF they ever do another future (OT) cast, with the movie taking place in say the 2020's (post Wolverine "waking up"), then Gambit would be anywhere between early 50's to early 60's; while Rogue (who was around 16 in 2005) would be early 30's. Could it be done? Sure, but IMO they would really need to force it.
Truth is they just screwed up that storyline by having Rogue in the OT cast and then having Gambit in Origins. Oh well.
