Fox has announced the filming dates for Gambit by confirming that the shooting for this the X-Men spinoff film will take place between February and July 2018. Another news coming in is that concept artist Aaron Sims has been roped in to work on Gambit.
Things are moving at a fast pace for Gambit. The work on this Marvel Comics adaptation started in 2015 with 20th Century Fox casting Channing Tatum as the producer and the lead hero.
Things began moving for the film only this year when the studio hired production designer Jess Gonchor. The latest to join the team is Lizzy Caplan who will be playing the female lead in the film. Even though new reports suggest that she will play the female lead in the movie, it is being said that there are multiple female roles in the upcoming film. Hence, Caplan’s role in Gambit is not clear as yet.
Omega Underground has now revealed that production work on Gambit will begin early next year. The location for the shooting will be New Orleans. The studio has apparently hired location scouts to help them find the right shooting spot. It must be remembered here is that the comic book character Gambit hails from New Orleans.
Another piece of information coming from Omega Underground is the inclusion of concept artist Aaron Smith. Since Smith owns a design and visual effects company with the name Aaron Sims Creative, it is quite possible that the company will be involved in the making of the film as well. The VFX side has worked on The Conjuring 2 and Stranger Things.
Reports of Multiple Man/Jamie Madrox appearing as part of Remy’s crew in the movie is also doing the rounds. Since Franco is associated with the Madrox role, and also since he has worked with Caplan and Channing Tatum on multiple projects, Omega suggests that he might join the team soon.
Gambit is scheduled to release in theaters on February 14, 2019. The movie is being produced by Channing Tatum, Simon Kinberg, Reid Carolin, and Lauren Shuler Donner. The script is by Josh Zetumer, and the film will be directed by Gore Verbinski.
