After spinning its wheels for years now, 20th Century Fox have finally moved to confirm the Channing Tatum-headlined Gambit for a new release date.
As it stands, Gambit will be hit screens on February 14th, 2019, which will see it open up against Isn’t It Romantic on that particular Valentine’s Day. And what says “Happy Valentine’s Day, dear!” better than a kinetic energy-manipulating cooler-than-the-other-side-of-the-pillow Cajun mutant?
Previously, Gambit had been initially pegged for an October 2017 release. Yes, as in any day now. With directors Doug Liman and Rupert Wyatt both departing the project over the past eighteen months or so, the film was casually removed from the studio’s release calendar as many began to wonder if the long-gestating picture would ever get made.
Following months of radio silence, it was only earlier this month that we heard Pirates of the Caribbean’s Gore Verbinski was in talks to direct Gambit, although there’s still nothing official come of that at this stage.
As ever, expect more on all things Gambit as we get it.
