"Gambit" is probably what Twentieth Century Fox is banking on to replace the successful solo franchise of "Wolverine." With the star power of its lead star, Channing Tatum, this may not be far off from happening. The movie is set to bow in theaters in October 2016 so reports are saying the production is set to start soon.
According to a report in Cinema Blend, production needs to start soon as the movie's release date is a little over a year away. And given that only its lead star so far has been cast, the report also mentioned that the movie is currently doing casting calls for the movie's supporting actors and actresses.
The report also cited their source of the casting calls as the website Showbiz411. The casting call, as listed by the website, mentioned 14 characters, each with specific character descriptions. In some cases, because of the nature of the story, the casting call required the actor or actress to speak fluent French. Of the 14 characters, only three are females, including one 10-12 year old while the rest are male. more >>
