Gambit movie

It’s been two years since Channing Tatum took the Hall H stage at Comic-Con 2015 to take a photo with the massive assemblage of X-Men: Apocalypse and Deadpool cast members during 20th Century Fox’s panel. Now, in the midst of Comic-Con 2017, we’re not much closer to seeing him suit up as the card-throwing Cajun mutant Gambit.

The film has experienced a revolving door of directors over the past year or so, and now Tatum says that the movie’s script is being reworked in the wake of the success of unconventional X-Men film like Deadpool and Logan. Get the latest info on the long-brewing Gambit movie below.

Gambit shoot date

Fox is seemingly in a constant state of tinkering with its cinematic version of the X-Men, and one of the key characters they’ve been looking to spin off into his own film has been Gambit, the Cajun mutant with the ability to imbue objects with a powerful explosive charge. The studio has experienced a number of start and stops with a Gambit solo movie over the years, and they’ve been having a hell of a time finding a director to stick to the project long enough to bring it to life.

Doug Liman, the man who directed The Bourne Identity, was once in the director’s chair for a Gambit movie, but thanks to a new interview, we now know why he ultimately walked away from it.

Gambit movie

About three years ago, X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner confirmed once and for all that Channing Tatum would be playing Gambit for a standalone film. And for a while, it all seemed to be coming together nicely. A release date was announced, a director was summoned, casting got underway. Then it lost its director and had to find a new one and the whole thing got delayed.

In recent months, there’s been speculation in some corners that Gambit might not happen at all. But Donner insists that’s not true. In an appearance at the TCAs, she stated that the project is still happening with Tatum.  Read More »

Simon Kinberg Star Wars X-Men

Simon Kinberg was on a Television Critics Association panel this morning for the new ABC series Designated Survivor, in which Kiefer Sutherland plays a cabinet member named President after a terrorist attack at the State of the Union address. After the panel, I caught up with Kinberg to ask about his mysterious Star Wars movie and X-Men universe projects.

First I asked Kinberg if doing a Star Wars anthology movie perhaps gave him more freedom than the Saga episodes that must continue the story along a forward path. “I love them all, to be honest,” Kinberg said. “I also work in the animated show, Star Wars Rebels, so I think it’s not necessarily freedom narratively but maybe a little more freedom tonally, because those anthology movies can have a different tone than the mainline episodes. Honestly, I’m involved in one capacity or another in almost everything over there and I love it all.”

We have yet to see how different in tone Rogue One ends up being, and it’s too early for Kinberg to know specifically about his film as he is just beginning to write it. Kinberg also discussed his upcoming X-Men projects including Deadpool 2Gambit, and Legion. Read More »
