Default Re: "Gambit" starring Channing Tatum?

The reason behind Donner's sudden desire to do a Gambit movie is embarrassingly transparent. It is only because Channing Tatum said he wanted to play Gambit and they are desperate to cash in on the fact that Tatum is hot right now. If the movie gets made, it will be nothing more than a star vehicle for Tatum who (in my opinion) is just not right for the part no matter how much he loves the character. Sorry.

And to be perfectly honest, I liked Kitsch's Gambit so much (thought he did quite well considering the crappy role he was given) that he IS movieverse Gambit for me at this point. I see no real reason to replace him with Tatum other than said cash-in motivation.
