Channing Tatum Reveals The Movie He Really Hates

Now we know why Channing Tatum’s character dies in the sequel to GI Joe. The actor says he hated his job, hates the franchise and no it is not a good idea to work in something you really hate. You’ve made that clear Channing.

Channing is making the rounds promoting Magic Mike XXL and chose to make it clear how he felt about GI Joe.

According to Ivan Ong, while on the radio show of Howard Stern, the actor said, “I hate that damn movie, only did it because I had signed a contract for three films with Paramount Pictures. I thought it sounded amazing and signed.”

Wow, talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

Trying to justify his words he said “the script was not good, did not add anything interesting to the history of GI Joe, and perished a character from the original story.”

If you recall, Tatum was not in the sequel, which delayed the release a bit, and so the producers called on more eye candy – Dwayne Johnson.

Despite his negativity, the film managed to raise $ 302 million worldwide, and $375 million without him.

Channing Tatum on Gambit Script

Gambit’s Channing Tatum Discusses His Film Role

The X-Men movie franchise has seen its share of success over the last several years and will expand even more. Some of that expansion includes the solo Gambit film coming out in October of 2016.

This year, 20th Century Fox studios is trying to market both the Fantastic Four reboot while filming X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool at the same time, while not forgetting about Wolverine 3 and Gambit’s solo movie. Channing Tatum will be playing the lead role in the movie, making it the third solo franchise film planned with X-Men.

A lot of work will be going into this project, since Gambit’s first on-screen appearance came in X-Men Origins: Wolverine back in 2009, but wasn’t the same person from the comics and animated television series that fans were asking for.

When asked, Tatum said that Gambit was one of his favorites because he felt was one of the most real X-Men to him.

The folks over at FreedomPop also wonder how Gambit fits into the bigger X-Men universe, and the solo movie may get a boost from having him make a cameo appearance in X-Men: Apocalypse.
