“Gambit” Aiming For Summer Shoot?

Movie News

 

Channing Tatum has been linked to the X-Men Gambit role for four years now, but the film itself has hit delay after delay as directors and releases dates change seemingly every few months.

Add to that the wrinkle of the fate of the X-Men being uncertain at this point due to the Disney-Fox deal still awaiting approval. For a while now it has seemed like we’ll never see it, but at the “Deadpool 2” premiere recently, “X-Men” producer Simon Kinberg says things look like they’re finally making progress. He tells Variety:

“We have a script that we love — that Channing loves. We’ve met with a bunch of directors in the last couple of weeks, and we’re hoping to actually pick one in the next couple of weeks and shoot the movie maybe the end of this summer.”

Rupert Wyatt, Doug Liman and Gore Verbinski were all previously attached to direct but dropped out. For now, it’s still best advised to take everything with a grain of salt.
