Last time we checked, the X-Men Cinematic Universe spin-off ‘Gambit’ was on hold and possibly in doubt, but Executive Producer Simon Kinberg gave an update on the Channing Tatum led film.
“We have a great script on that and hope to shoot that movie at the beginning of spring of next year,” said Kinberg to The Hashtag Show.
With a spring 2017 production schedule fans can expect an early 2018 release. ‘Deadpool’ hit theaters on February 12, 2016.
Doug Liman is still in line to direct the film, Monkeys Fighting Robots will post more news on “Gambit’ as it becomes available.
Kinberg in the video below also confirms ‘Deadpool 2’ will begin production early next year, after which he’ll begin writing the next ‘X-Men’ film which would presumably be the ‘Dark Phoneix Saga.’
