While we wait to see if the Gambit movie will ever happen, check out a cool piece of fan art featuring Channing Tatum as the ragin' Cajun.
The Gambit movie recently lost its second director and the release date has been yanked. The Gambit movie seems indefinitely delayed as Simon Kinberg recently offered an update in that they are trying to work things out:
I think the truth is when you have these movies that need a very special and unique tone, it takes a little while to find that tone…’Deadpool’ feels like it exploded out of nowhere, but it was a 10-year development process on that movie. I think it was honed over those 10 years.
I hope that ‘Gambit’ doesn’t take 10 years, but it takes a little honing to get that tone and that voice exactly right. The character has such a specific voice in the comic in the same way that ‘Deadpool’ has a specific voice in the comic, that we want to make sure that we capture that voice on the page. Really it’s just about getting a screenplay that is worthy of that character, and I think we’re really close right now.
