“Everything’s not done yet…”
THR recently spoke with actor Channing Tatum at Cannes this week, and Tatum revealed that while he's "dying" to work on X-Men: Apocalypse, he's not 100% confirmed for the project yet.
Tatum stated: "I hope to be joining — everything's not done yet. I've obviously been in talks, and we're on the one-yard line. I'm always afraid of being like, 'Yes, it's totally happening,' and then it doesn't happen."
Previous reports indicated that Tatum would play the reintroduction for the character of Remy LeBeau aka Gambit for the next X-Men sequel, X-Men: Apocalypse, and then he would return to play Gambit again in a spinoff movie. Currently, there's no director attached to the project.
