It’s been no secret that Fox’s Gambit film has had its fair share of production issues. The film lost its latest director, Gore Verbinski, and it appears the production of the film is set to be delayed yet again. According to Omega Underground, the film has been removed from production schedules for the time being.
Omega Underground also stated that they wouldn’t be surprised if the film switches filming locations. Gambit is currently slated to film in New Orleans, Louisiana, but we shouldn’t be surprised if it switched to Montreal, Quebec. This has been a reliable location for past X-Men films, so a move to here wouldn’t be outrageous with yet another delay for the film.
The film is now looking for what would be a 4th director to be attached to the project, as Doug Liman, Rupert Wyatt, and Gore Verbinski were previously attached to it before departing for different reasons each. Fox had recently changed the release dates of some of their upcoming films, Gambit is one of those. The film got a new release date in the form of June 7th, 2019 instead of its original February 19th, 2019 date. The only constant the film has had in its initial stages is that Channing Tatum is still attached to star as the Ragin’ Cajun.
