GAMBIT Film Announces Screenwriter and Treatment Writer

20th Century Fox’s Gambit spin-off film in its X-Men franchise, due to star Channing Tatum, has both a screenwriter attached as well as a finished treatment by X-Men writer, Chris Claremont. The report from Newsarama cites a Deadline article which says that Josh Zetumer, who wrote the Robocop reboot released earlier this year, has been hired to write the screenplay.

The Deadline piece also states that Claremont, who has penned various X-Men comics for over 40 years and is lauded as the franchise’s key creator, has finished a treatment, or basic plot outline, for the film. Gambit (previously played by Taylor Kitsch in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine) was created by Claremont and artist Jim Lee (currently the co-publisher of DC Comics) in 1991, and became a fan favorite through his role in the 1990s animated series. Tatum will make his debut as Gambit in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse.
