Tatum has also signed on to serve as a producer for this film adaptation. Screenwriter Josh Zetumer has been brought on to oversee the script. Chris Claremont, the Marvel Comics writer who created this character with Jim Lee, penned the first draft of the script.
Here’s more from Deadline: “The storyline is being kept under wraps. The character, which also goes by the name Remy LeBeau, has the ability to charge matter with volatile kinetic energy, causing the object in question to explosively release its charge on impact. The character materialized in a short burst in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine.”
