It seems that Channing Tatum’s long-developing — and frequently delayed — Gambit movie is finally back in business. After losing two directors and his leading lady, Tatum took the X-Men spinoff back to the drawing board to re-develop the screenplay. With Fox’s X-Men universe quickly expanding following the success of Deadpool, it looks like the studio is ready to give Gambit the green light, and they’re eyeing Lizzy Caplan to join Tatum.
Oh, and the anti-climax jokes that ensue. Showtime’s Masters of Sex once ranked as an early breakout for the network, but lost steam in its latter seasons, even as the most recent run returned some critical praise. Sadly, Masters & Johnson have officially closed up shop, as Showtime confirms Masters of Sex won’t return for Season 5.
It’s been a little while since the last update on Deadpool 2, so we’re definitely due for some fresh news — like this casting report, which suggests that several great actresses are on Fox’s shortlist for the role of Domino, a character who has been consistently rumored for the highly-anticipated sequel. According to the latest rumor, the studio is eyeing a handful of stars to play the mutant mercenary (and X-Force member), including Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Kingsman favorite Sofia Boutella.
You can always count on Showtime to debut its wares ahead of schedule, and Masters of Sex gets an even bigger boon this year. Catch up with Bill, Virginia and Libby weeks ahead of Season 4's official premiere, and find out what other big names have joined the cast!
It isn’t exactly scientific to suggest that Showtime’s Masters of Sex has fallen on some harder times after its revered first season, but harder still times seem in store by the first Season 4 trailer. Michael Sheen’s Dr. Masters has his very own sadness beard in the first official sneak peek, heralding both a September Season 4 premiere and the advent of a swinging ‘70s vibe.
