Lauren Shuler Donner confirms Channing Tatum Gambit casting

Total Film took part in the X-Men X-Perience Global Tour last night, by standing on a rainy blue carpet and chatting to some of the stars and creators of the awesome X-Men: Days Of Future Past .

And while we were there, we got a little bit of a scoop. We asked Lauren Shuler Donner how the Channing Tatum talks are going, and she told us that the talks are over. In the best possible way.
