At the UK Premiere of Logan Lucky Channing Tatum told us that the Marvel movie of Gambit is now being rewritten following the success of R-Rated films such as Deadpool and Logan.
Brandon Davis was able to snag Tatum for a brief question after the actor appeared at San Diego Comic-Con. It was there ComicBook asked if the actor was still playing Gambit, and here’s what the actor had to say: “Yeah, of course. We’re working on it right now.”
“It is. It is. I don’t have any news on that but there’s still a desire and a passionate interest to see that movie made.”
CinemaBlend Events Editor Eric Eisenberg recently spoke with X-Men overseers Simon Kinberg and Hutch Parker about James Mangold’s Logan, and the state of multiple X-Men movies. When we brought up Gambit, Kinberg confirmed to us: “In terms of Gambit, that’s a movie that we’re still developing very actively, and Channing [Tatum] is incredibly committed to […]
The X-Men spinoff currently has neither a release date nor a director, but producer Lauren Shuler Donner insists that Gambit is still happening. Should we believe her?

A reboot of the diminishing mutant movie series is in the works as Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine heads for retirement and a studio’s $4 billion franchise sits in flux.
Doug Liman is no longer directing Gambit. The Mr. and Mrs. Smith director has moved off Twentieth Century Fox’s X-Men spin-off, which still has Channing Tatum attached to star. Insiders tell The Hollywood Reporter the studio is still intent on starting production in January and has Josh Zetumer on writing duties. A source describes split […]
He was then asked about the status of Gambit, which according to Kinberg isn’t as far away from filming as some previously thought. “We have a great script on that and hope to shoot that movie at the beginning of spring of next year.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Liman is in negotiations to fill the void left by Oscar winner Robert Zemeckis’ departure from Lionsgate’s post-apocalyptic film project. The plan is to begin production this fall, making it the second project Liman will have lined up to make this year as filming on Gambit was delayed to late […]
It looks like fans of X-Men character Gambit are going to have to wait a little bit longer to see Channing Tatum don the trademark trenchcoat for Fox’s big-screen take on the Marvel mutant. Gambit was to have begun production in the first quarter of this year but rewrites have pushed the start of the […]
Gambit will no longer arrive in theaters on it’s planned October 7th release date, and while a new release date has not been announced, Fox has slated two mystery Marvel projects for October 6, 2017, and January 12, 2018. The first film will face off against Andy Serkis‘ The Jungle Book: Origins, while the second […]
“I mean Deadpool obviously has a very different, almost antithetical tone to the mainline X-Men movies,” says Kinberg. “The X-Men movies are dramatic and almost operatic, whereas Deadpool is irreverent and hysterical and sort of a dirty R-rated comedy in many ways. And Gambit will have its own different flavor and tone to it, will […]
After losing original director Rupert Wyatt and with an October 7, 2016, release looming like a hangman, Fox has furiously met with filmmakers to hop on board to direct the X-Men spin-off Gambit. The name the studio has found is a surprising one: Doug Liman. Liman is in final negotiations to direct the comic book […]
On Gambit, Fox never believed that it was heading into a situation with Wyatt that would have recalled its difficulties with Trank, who was said to be withdrawn and isolated while making Fantastic Four. Wyatt is “a talented guy,” says a studio source. “He shows up. He comes early. He stays late. He’s got good […]
Earlier today, Paquin was asked by a fan if she would appear in Gambit and she simply responded: “No.” @ChargeTheCards @_Lady_S_ @shailenewoodley no — Anna Paquin (@AnnaPaquin) September 27, 2015
Director Rupert Wyatt has fallen off Gambit, the Channing Tatum X-Men spinoff being made by Fox. “I was very much looking forward to working with my friend Channing and the team at Fox, but regrettably a push in the start date now conflicts with another project,” said Wyatt in a statement. “I thank them for […]
