GAMBIT (2018): Production Set To Start Next Spring

Gambit Comic

20th Century Fox plans to start production on Gambit in the spring of 2017. The news comes after previous developments that resulted in the X-Men spin-off film’s release date being pushed back.

The announcement was made by Simon Kinberg, who is set to write and produce the movie. Speaking in an interview with The Hashtag Show, Kinberg voiced his satisfaction with the script before revealing that the studio was shooting for a particular time to commence shooting:

Yesterday, That Hashtag Show released their brief interview segment with producer/writer Simon Kinberg from the 42nd Saturn Awards and when asked about the status of the upcoming Channing Tatum-starrer, Kinberg revealed that the script, which Liman had been overseeing rewrites on for months, has finally been completed and then goes on to reveal when they plan on kicking off production: “Yeah, we have a great script on that, and hope to shoot that movie at the beginning or spring of next year.” This shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise as this was somewhat expected ever since Liman took over for Rupert Wyatt (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes) back in October and with him signing two new projects in the time since. Looking ahead, it seems more likely than not that Gambit will hit theaters on one of the two 2018 dates Fox has already slated for a Marvel release or if not then, then at an undetermined future date.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
