Gambit

GAMBIT a “romantic comedy” says Kinberg…

We heard earlier in the week that Gambit is targeting an early 2019 production start. That tallies with rumours that the film is aiming for a 2020 released. Now producer Simon Kinberg has touched on the tone of the film in a new interview with IGN:

“When you look at Gambit, he’s a hustler and a womanizer and we just felt like there was an attitude, a swagger to him, that lent itself to romantic comedy,” He continued, “You know, when I say romantic comedy, I use that term loosely, in the same term that I use the term western for Logan loosely,”

Kinberg said. “It’s not like they’re gunslingers at high noon in Logan. It’s just a vibe. And I would say the vibe of Gambit has a romantic or sex comedy vibe to it. While it is also still very much a superhero movie with villains and heroes, as all these movies are.”

So… Gambit the romantic comedy? But only loosely.

In the same interview Kinberg talked about Fox’s current plans for the X-Men. He confirmed that the studio is waiting for Drew Goddard to be free in order to continue work on the previously rumoured Multiple Man movie.
