After years of development, re-development, and rewrites upon rewrites, it sounds like the X-Men spinoff film Gambit is set to begin production very soon.

The folks over at Omega Underground are reporting that director Gore Verbinski is eyeing a February production, with the intent of wrapping production in July. Since it was announced that they’d be releasing the film on February 14, 2019, it’s pretty much been assumed that they’d starting shooting the flick around February, but this rumor seems to corroborate that assumption.

Currently, actor Channing Tatum is the only officially on board to play the ragin’ Cajun himself, Remy Lebeau (aka Gambit). As of right now, Lizzy Caplan has been reported to be in talks for the film, and it’s unknown what her role would be (especially since we really have no idea what the film is about yet).

Of course, given that there isn’t much of a cast and crew to speak of yet, the production month could shift one way or another, but it sounds like this is a movie that’s actually happening, for better or worse. We’ll be keeping an eye on things as the February shoot date approaches. We’re sure to get a bunch of casting details in the very near future should things start moving forward.
