The famous "Deadpool 2" producer, Simon Kinberg is now looking forward towards its upcoming movie starrer Channing Tatum. The producer is hoping that the shooting of the movie will commence during this summer. Later this week, the team will shortlist a director for the movie.
The movie is titled with the name 'Gambit'. According to TOI, Simon Kinberg said that we have a script that we love - that Channing loves. The team has met with a bunch of directors in the last couple of weeks, and they are hoping to actually pick one in the next couple of weeks.
Since the movie 'Gambit' was announced by the 20th Century Fox, the project had undergone multiple developments. Earlier in September 2015, the movie was helmed by Rupert Wyatt, who left it due to timing conflicts. This problem delayed the production schedule.
But the problems don't stop there. In January, 20th Century Fox announced the release date would again be pushed back from February 14, 2019, to June 7, 2019. This release date got pushed off because of the movie Gore Verbinski exited the movie. Since then the creative team of the movie 'Gambit' has been searching for a new director. The film is slated to hit the big screen on June 2019.
