The Wrap has reported that actor Channing Tatum is in the process of walking away from standalone movie Gambit. A few weeks ago Tatum was promoting this project at this years Comic-Con, in which he was producing the movie. This makes his sudden decision to walk away from the project seem complicated. The Wrap says Tatum and the studio are in negotiations to keep him, but Tatum has stated in the past how much he hated being pigeonholed, since the 2009 G.I. Joe movie. Hopefully this is just rumors, but we’ll just have to wait until the whole story develops.
