It appears that after years of delays Gambit may finally be about to start production.
During an interview with Variety at the Deadpool 2 premiere producer Simon Kinberg gave an update on the project:
“We have a script that we love — that Channing loves. We’ve met with a bunch of directors in the last couple of weeks, and we’re hoping to actually pick one in the next couple of weeks and shoot the movie maybe the end of this summer.”
Though the search for a director is ongoing this is the closest the film has come to starting production. At the time of writing we have no news on supporting roles or potential story.
