Since then, Ferguson, who kicked a perpetual load of asses this summer in director Christopher McQuarrie's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, dropped the film for the new Emily Blunt thriller, The Girl On The Train. As for the part of the Marvel femme fatale, Deadline reports that Seydoux herself has snagged her place in Gambit amid talks for the role.
