GAMBIT Reportedly Starting Production This Winter, Right Before The Disney Merger Is Completed

Fox is reportedly doing anything they can to get Gambit off and running. The film, with a completed screenplay and a star attached has been looking for a director over the past year to no avail...

Gambit has been a burden for Fox, a project that has been so close to starting production multiple times with no success. Famed directors such as Doug Liman, Gore Verbinski and Rupert Wyatt have all joined and dropped the project over the past few years, citing creative differences all three times. With faith in the screenplay and Channing Tatum on board, Fox and Simon Kinberg are desperate to get the film going before the Fox-men close up for good.

According to Omega Underground, who has been very credible as of late, Fox is attempting to start production once again, with new crew hires reportedly coming soon. Filming in New Orleans and Big Easy Studios, the current start date is February 15th. It is worth noting that the site emphasizes the story as a rumor, so take the news with a grain of salt.

To be fair, it is plausible to assume that the studio is doing everything they can to get Gambit going. It still stings to see Channing Tatum in the 2017 SDCC Fox photoshoot knowing his film might never hit theaters, and though no one really wants to see this movie, fans are still rooting for you.
