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.
