We've known for some time that Channing Tatum has been confirmed to appear as Gambit in an upcoming 'X-Men' spinoff film, although how that film will (eventually?) connect to the current films is unclear. Today brings some further motion, as the film is most definitely moving forward, picking up screenwriter Josh Zetumer, who penned the 'RoboCop' remake. We've also learned some potentially good news: Zetumer's script will be based on a treatment by original 'X-Men' comics writer and Gambit co-creator Chris Claremont.

Gambit has been a fan favorite 'X-Men' character ever since his first full appearance in "Uncanny X-Men #266" back in 1990. You would think that would lead to fast track to the big screen, but Gambit's road to cinematic stardom has been shaky at best. The character made a brief appearance in the horrible 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' (played by Taylor Kitsch), but has since not been re-introduced to movie audiences. That could all change as Channing Tatum admits he's met with the 'X-Men' producers about the part.

But now, X-Men franchise producer Shuler Donner has revealed that yes, she would very much like to see Tatum play the character and that yes, a Gambit movie may actually happen.

Frankly, we're tired of all the six-second clips and teasers that tease the actual 'Gambit' trailer. Sure, we got a look at Colin Firth and Alan Rickman in the official movie posters, but what of Cameron Diaz and her rodeo cowgirl character with an accent comparable to little Ms. Honey Boo Boo Child?

It may be a while before we see 'Gambit,' the Joel and Ethan Coen-scripted remake of the 1966 caper starring Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz, but we've got a few seconds of footage and two posters to show you that should -- maybe, probably -- hold you over until then.
