Production was set to start this spring on ‘Gambit’, but rewrites have pushed shooting to late 2016, while director Doug Liman moves on to ‘The Wall’.
The stand alone X-Men movie starring Channing Tatum as Gambit has had multiple script rewrites and delays – not a good sign. Reid Carolin, the longtime writing and producing partner of Tatum’s is now taking a stab at the script – he wrote both Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL. Joshua Zetumer (Robocop) wrote the original script.
Doug Liman is still set to direct the film after he completes The Wall for Amazon.
