The Gambit movie has had a troubled history, with the X-Men spin-off film gaining and losing directors and writers, and nearly losing its lead star Channing Tatum in the process. Tatum has stuck by the project since it was first announced in 2014, but the Gambit film has remained in limbo ever since.

But as the status of Gambit remains in question and the initial release date scheduled for the film (July 2018) draws closer, rumored plot details of the film have hit the internet. Whether they are true or not ( the only thing the film has going for it is an unshakable lead star) is yet to be seen. But if true, Gambit could set in motion an even greater interconnected X-Men universe.

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.
