Channing Tatum's Gambit movie officially dealt release date and director Gore Verbinski

13 October 2017

Good news if you had Channing Tatum's long-gestating Gambit movie in your "Hollywood project in limbo most likely to actually happen" office pool: the thing's got a release date at last, and Tatum's card-flinging X-Men dreams are about to come true. The only other release that Valentine's Day is New Line's Isn't It Romantic.

It's official: Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski is taking the helm of the long-awaited Gambit movie.

UAE stops issuing visas to North Koreans
Malaysia imposed a travel ban to North Korea last month, following Pyongyang's repeated ballistic missile tests. More than 1,000 North Korean laborers are reportedly working at construction sites and elsewhere in the UAE.

However, it seems like Gambit's ball has started rolling again, because according to a report by Deadline, Fox has just announced that the studio's scheduled Tatum's solo superhero film to hit cinemas on February 14, 2019. The February area of the calendar has been quite successful for Fox's X-Men properties of late, following Deadpool's record-breaking debut in 2016 and Logan in early March this year. Yet, the project has struggled to move past the development stage, having lost two directors (Doug Liman and Rupert Wyatt) and its release date. Gambit has a script by Josh Zetumer and is produced by Tatum, Reid Carolin, Simon Kinberg, Lauren Shuler Donner.

The film joins fellow X-Men films X-Men: The New Mutants (April 13th, 2018), Deadpool 2 (June 1st, 2018) and X-Men: Dark Phoenix (November 2nd, 2018) as films from the franchise with release dates. Whether the Gambit movie actually does get made and makes this release date is another story, though; a February 2019 release would put it almost two and a half years after its initial October 2016 projected release date.
