Anna Paquin: Gambit movie probably won't happen
The upcoming Gambit film doesn’t seem to be in the cards for Anna Paquin.
When asked by a fan on Twitter if she’ll be a part of the upcoming X-Men spinoff starring Channing Tatum, the actress — who has played Rogue in four previous X-Men installments — replied, “No.”
Rogue and Gambit (Tatum) are romantically involved in the X-Men comics universe. In the films, however, Rogue has a relationship with Iceman (Shawn Ashmore).
After media outlets began reporting the Rogue news, Paquin returned to Twitter to clarify her response.
“That wasn’t a press release!!! I was asked and answered with the information that I currently have,” she wrote. “That is all!”
Gambit is set to arrive in theaters on Oct. 7, 2016, with production set to begin in early spring.
