Though the separation was amicable, the loss of the film's director has seemingly set the film's production back, and according to The Hollywood Reporterthis forced the studio to move the film from a Valentine's release in 2019 to a June release in the same year. As recently as this week, OmegaUnderground reported that production on the Gambit solo film was supposed to begin on March 19 in New Orleans, Louisiana, but I'm guessing that's all out the window now that the project is left rudderless once more.

The movie also stars Lizzy Caplan as Bella Donna Boudreaux, Gambit's first love and the daughter of New Orleans' Assassins' Guild in the comics. Updated with Gambit's new release date. Pirates of the Caribbean filmmaker Gore Verbinski is the latest director to part ways with the X-Men spin-off movie, which was rumored to start production this March.

Disney already owns the vast majority of Marvel Films properties, but long-standing contracts give Fox the rights to the "X-Men" and "Fantastic Four" properties. As a result, Twentieth Century Fox have pushed the film's release date from February 2019 to June 2019.

We have played so much golf together. "I've asked him to fulfill a dual role as a senior player and he has really taken to it". The Europeans will be guided by future Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjorn, while Arjun Atwal takes charge of Team Asia.

Despite these ongoing setbacks, Channing Tatum still remains attached to star in Gambit, whenever the movie actually gets made. Gambit was last seen on-screen in the bad X-Men Origins: Wolverine and was played by Taylor Kitch. Some of the story would, per that story, be told in flashback to establish how young Remy came to be in the custody of master thief Luke Lebeau and how he came to know Bella Donna Boudreaux, the femme fatale.

Budget details for the film were unavailable, although its original 2015 filing with the state film office indicated at the time that it was operating with a $155 million budget.
