A short bit back, the website Splash Report shared a breakdown that they claimed was for 20th Century Fox’s in development Gambit film starring Channing Tatum. Included in this polot synipsis for the film was the revelation that it would introduce Nathaniel Essex, best known as Mr. Sinister, as the primary villain of the film. If their sources are accurate, we may also now know who the studio is eyeing for the role. According to their latest piece on the film, there are reportedly conversations being had about bringing Daniel Craig on board for the solo film with him potentially reprising the role in future X-Men films.
The actor just recently appeared alongside Channing Tatum in the Steven Soderbergh directed Logan Lucky earlier this year. Maybe (if we’re lucky) Fox will also attempt to lure Soderbergh into the director’s chair for the mutant heist film. Fingers crossed. While I’d never really thought about Craig for the role in the past, I have to admit I could see this one working. However, this one is definitely in the rumor deparment for the time being but let us know what you think about the potential casting in the comments section below.
