Even celebrities have to deal with the occasional break-in as Gambit hopefull, Channing Tatum had to file a restraining order against a squatter.
The story regarding the restraining order is rather bizarre and unsettling. According to reports, a woman broke into Channing Tatum’s house and moved in with her belongings and lived in the house for ten days before someone realized she was living there. Apparently one of Channing Tatum’s assistants discovered her living in the house and promptly called the police. The woman apparently tried to contact the Gambit hopeful before and is not believed to be in her right mind.
Channing Tatum has since filed and was granted a restraining order on the squatter that covers himself, his daughter and ex-wife. It was not granted, however, to Channing Tatum’s two assistants. According to the restraining order, the squatter is not allowed within a hundred yards of the three nor is she allowed to contact them.
Channing Tatum is, of course, known for a number of film roles but is also known for one that never came to life. The actor was originally set to play Gambit in the X-Men films but the part kept being pushed back for a number of reasons. Originally, Channing Tatum was supposed to appear as Gambit for X-Men: Apocolypse before the character was removed in script rewrites. Channing Tatum was then supposed to get his own solo film as Gambit but went through a number of production problems and released date pushbacks. The Gambit film was last slated to be released on 3/13/2020 before Disney removed it from its release schedule altogether.
It is currently unknown if Disney and Marvel plan on putting Channing Tatum in a Gambit centered film in the future.

Veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix in addition to producing the film with Hutch Parker, Lauren Schuler Donner and Todd Hallowell. Dark Phoenix is expected to be Fox’s final X-Men film featuring the core X-Men cast in the cinematic universe launched by director Bryan Singer in 2000 with the Disney-Fox merger now complete.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here’s the film’s synopsis:
“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
