It looks as if the Channing Tatum Gambit movie will begin filming as early as this coming March in New Orleans.
According to Omega Underground, a source in the know has filled them in that Gambit will film for ten weeks in New Orleans and then will film in other locations.
New Orleans is the setting and location for Gambit in the comics, and Channing Tatum even owns a bar/restaurant in New Orleans with the Bourbon Street club Saints & Sinners.
Details for the Gambit movie includes that Channing Tatum will star as Remy LeBeau, aka Gambit, the mutant who has the ability to convert the potential energy into kinetic energy often using energy-charged playing cards as projectiles.
Lizzy Caplan has also recently joined the cast, thought to be playing Bella Donna Boudreaux, the leader of the Assassins Guild and love interest of Gambit.
Rumors for Gambit include that it will be a heist film and sort of take on Romeo and Juliet to a degree (opposing guilds with Gambit and Bella Donna on each side) with Mr. Sinister rumored as a villain.
Gambit has a February 14, 2019 release date directed by Gore Verbinksi, with Channing Tatum also serving as producer in addition to Reid Carolin, and X-Men’s Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg. Josh Zetumer (Patriot’s Day, RoboCop, The Infamous) wrote the script.
