Gambit: Director and new release date confirmed

By Alex Wiggan

A few minutes ago I posted the first official trailer for X-Men spin-off movie, The New Mutants – if you’ve not seen it yet I advise you to check it out. I’m now posting news about another X-Men spin-off movie – the long-discussed Gambit movie.

This morning is turning out to be a right X-fest!

Last week, during New York Comic Con, it was rumoured that Pirates of the Caribbean director, Gore Verbinski was in the frame to direct the long gestating Gambit movie for Fox. This news – originally reported by Deadline – has now been confirmed as being true.

In addition to the director, 20th Century Fox has also announced the release date for the proposed movie: February 14th 2019. Yep, Valentine’s day!

Gambit will star Channing Tatum in the lead role of Gambit/Remy LeBeau – a character previously played by Taylor Kitsch in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009). The film will be produced by Tatum, along with Reid Carolin, Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner.
