We've been smacked with yet another rumor concerning the comic book film world. This time, its Showbizspy.com claiming that Lost's Josh Holloway is going to be playing Gambit in a fourth X-Men movie.

If this is true, that means 20th Century Fox is, in fact, taking another stab at the X-Men franchise, which has been very profitable for them. The original word on the street was that they were through with the series, and were instead going to focus on one-off features revolving around Wolverine and Magneto.

About the project, Holloway stated, "We had a meeting and they wanted me to play Gambit, the card dealer character, they thought I'd be perfect for the part. We'll see. l would love to play a superhero. I'd love to wear a cape and tights."

It's highly inevitable that we will see another X-Men film. But will this news pan out to be true? Only time will tell. Stay tuned for updates.
