After years of anticipation, “Gambit” is finally going to escape development hell. Channing Tatum is still attached to portray Remy LeBeau, Gore Verbinski is attached to helm the long-awaited project, and a release date has now been set for Valentine's Day 2019.
A new report from Omega Underground estimates that, with the film aiming for a February 14, 2019 release, shooting is likely to begin in February and have principal photography run through July of next year. Much of the filming is expected to take place in New Orleans, Louisiana, with other locales such as Paris also possibly appearing as well.
The announcement of the February-July production schedule comes on the heels of other recent reports related to the overall plot and ensemble of the “Gambit” solo movie. Specifically, it was recently announced that Lizzy Caplan had signed on for the film, though the exact character she will be playing remains unspecified. Aside from Caplan, James Franco is also potentially gearing up to play Jamie Madrox a.k.a Multiple Man in the film as well.
