Deadline is reporting that three actresses are in the running to play the main female lead opposite Channing Tatum in the upcoming Gambit film. According to the Hollywood trade, the role is that of Belladonna Boudreaux, a mutant assassin who was at one time married to Gambit in comic books.

The actresses reportedly in contention are Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation), Lea Seydoux (Spectre), and Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road).

Deadline describes the role as "hotly contested," and this comes just days after Tatum's deal for the film was reportedly finalized after months of hard negotiations.
