"X-Men: Gambit" Movie Updates

According to reports Doug Liman ("The Bourne Identity") will direct the "X-Men" spin-off  'Gambit', starring Channing Tatum, scheduled for a March 2016 start in New Orleans:

Created by writer Chris Claremont and illustrator Jim Lee, the 'Gambit'  character debuted in Marvel's "Uncanny X-Men Annual" #14 (1990), followed by "Uncanny X-Men" #266 (August 1990).

A mutant, Gambit can mentally create, control and manipulate pure kinetic energy.

He is also skilled in card-throwing, hand-to-hand combat and the use of a bō.

Originally a professional thief, Gambit has shown a more vulnerable side of himself with the mutant 'Rogue'. Proud of his Louisiana heritage, he speaks in a thick Cajun accent.

Though he did not appear in the first three "X-Men" films, Gambit appeared on screen in the 2009 feature "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", portrayed by Taylor Kitsch.
