"X-Men: Gambit" Movie Updates

  • SneakPeek
According to new reports, the Fox stand-alone "Gambit" feature, produced by Lauren Shuler Donner, with the working title "Chess", showcasing "X-Men" mutant 'Remy Lebeau' (Channing Tatum) and the female super-villain 'Candra The Benefactress', aka 'Red Death', now has a brief synopsis:

"...'Remy Lebeau' (Tatum) is on trial in New Orleans. He’s considered a huge security risk. We flashback to almost 25 years before. Master thief 'Luke Lebeau' runs into eight-year-old 'Gambit' while doing a heist. Impressed by his skills, he offers to take the mutant orphan under his wings. Raised alongside other strays he calls 'cousins', the teenage Gambit becomes the superstar of the 'Thief Guild'.

"He encounters 'Bella Donna Boudreaux' while on the run from the police. Sparks immediately fly since Bella is also a fellow mutant.

"Their love is directly prohibited by both families since the Boudreaux family are sworn enemies of the Lebeau clan. Deciding to unite the two sides,

Wonder Woman 2 production start date revealed, Cold War setting possibly confirmed

With Patty Jenkins signing a bumper deal to return to the director’s chair and Warner Bros. setting a December 2019 release date for the film, it now seems we have word on when Wonder Woman 2 will enter production.

According to a listing on My Entertainment World (via Omega Underground), filming on the Wonder Woman sequel will begin in June 2018, with the production listing stating that “the sequel will be a pariod piece, with Princess Diana facing off against the Soviet Union during the 1980s”.

This would seem to confirm previous rumours, although it’s possible that the production listing has simply taken said rumours as fact until more information betcomes available.

New Report Says That Gambit Will Be A Crime/Heist Film

We still can’t quite believe the Gambit solo film might actually get made. Channing Tatum was chosen for the role way back in the mid 2000s, but had to duck out of X-Men Origins: Wolverine to appear in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (talk about being stuck between a rock and a hard place), with Taylor Kitsch taking the part instead. Which was, at the time, a three-picture deal to play the character.

Well, we all know what happened there. But you can’t keep a good mutant down, with the Gambit project then spending years floating between various directors, with Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman coming very close to actually making it to production. Now, finally, it looks as if Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski is to take the reins and finally, finally, get this thing out of the gates.

The New Mutants Delivers A Frightful Teaser To Honor Friday The 13th

The X-Men cinematic universe isn’t known for its scares (save for X-Men Origins: Wolverine, though that’s a story for another day), but with The New Mutants, director Josh Boone is about to steer Fox’s mutant juggernaut into relatively uncharted, and very dark territory.

Forget the costumes, the supervillains and the plans for world domination, New Mutants is a horror-oriented oddity that largely takes place within the ice-white walls of a governmental research facility, where five young mutants are being held against their will. They’re hormonal, they’re powerful, and they’re ready to wreak havoc on just about anyone who crosses them, as today’s first-look teaser proves.

Similar to how Logan scaled back all of the grand, apocalyptic story elements scattered across Fox’s core X-Men franchise, Josh Boone’s spinoff sets itself apart as an intimate, relatively self-contained pic about five gifted teenagers who

Gambit” will unleash his powers on Feb. 14, 2019.

20th Century Fox has set a release date for the “X-Men” spinoff starring Channing Tatum.

Gore Verbinski recently signed on to direct from a script by Josh Zetumer. Tatum is producing with partner Reid Carolin through their Free Association company, along with Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner.

Gambit, otherwise known as Remy LeBeau, is a New Orleans native with the power to mentally manipulate kinetic energy. His weapons include a staff and a deck of playing cards. The character was created in 1990 by Chris Claremont and Jim Lee, and he first appeared on the big screen in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” portrayed by Taylor Kitsch.

Fox has scheduled three movies in its expanding “X-Men” universe for 2018, with “New Mutants” set to open on April 13, “Deadpool 2” on June 1, and “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” on Nov. 2.

Gambit Scores Valentine’s Day 2019 Release

Too often we hear of film projects falling apart when a director/star walks away or, in the more common scenario, a studio pulls the plug altogether. From Fantastic Four 2 to Sony’s fabled Sinister Six crossover, you don’t have to search too far to locate a big-name project that failed to get off the ground. Thankfully, Gambit isn’t one of them.

Yes, the X-Men spinoff has encountered one setback after another since it was first announced, but despite all those frustrating false starts, Channing Tatum remains attached to headline as the ice-cool Remy LeBeau. That’s the real name of the titular hero, a card-playing Cajun who hails from New Orleans. Originally portrayed by Taylor Kitsch in the widely derided X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the torch has since been passed over to Tatum, whose long-time affinity for the character stretches all the way back to childhood.

Gore Verbinski in Negotiations to Direct Channing Tatum’s ‘Gambit’
Gore Verbinski is in talks to direct “Gambit,” Channing Tatum’s “X-Men” spinoff for Fox.

Tatum is producing with partner Reid Carolin through their Free Association production company, along with Simon Kinberg. “Gambit” has been in development for several years at Fox with Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman previously attached as directors. Wyatt departed in October 2015, while Liman left in August 2016.

Tatum closed his deal to star in and produce “Gambit” in 2015, shortly after appearing at Fox’s Comic-Con panel with the cast of “X-Men.”

The Gambit character was created in 1990 by Chris Claremont and Jim Lee. An expert card-thrower, the New Orleans native has the ability to mentally create, control, and manipulate kinetic energy. Also known as Remy LeBeau, his weapons include a staff and a deck of playing cards. Gambit first appeared on the big screen in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” portrayed by Taylor Kitsch.

Lynda Carter has a firm response for James Cameron and his Wonder Woman criticism

While Wonder Woman has received near universal praise, Warner Bros.’ female-led superhero blockbuster has attracted a handful of critics – most notably filmmaker James Cameron, who back in August criticised the film as a “step backwards for the portrayal of women in movies.

At the time, Wonder Woman helmer Patty Jenkins posted a measured response to Cameron’s remarks, and with the Avatar director subsequently stating this week that he stands by his comments, TV’s Wonder Woman Lynda Carter has now issued her own rather firm rebuttal via her Facebook page.

“To James Cameron -Stop dissing Ww: You poor soul. Perhaps you do not understand the character. I most certainly do. Like all women–we are more than the sum of our parts. Your thuggish jabs at a brilliant director, Patty Jenkins, are ill advised. This movie was spot on. Gal Gadot was great. I know, Mr. Cameron–because I

James Cameron stands by his Wonder Woman criticism

Given that he’s just kicked off principal photography on his four Avatar sequels, you’d be forgiven for thinking that James Cameron would be solely focussed on his latest visit to the world of Pandora. However, it seems that’s not fully the case, as the filmmaker has been chatting to THR about his earlier criticisms of Warner Bros.’ blockbuster superhero movie Wonder Woman, where he’d described it as a “step backwards” for the portrayal of women in films.

“Yes, I’ll stand by that,” said Cameron. “I mean, she was Miss Israel, and she was wearing a kind of bustier costume that was very form-fitting. She’s absolutely drop-dead gorgeous. To me, that’s not breaking ground. They had Raquel Welch doing stuff like that in the ’60s. It was all in a context of talking about why Sarah Connor — what Linda Hamilton created in 1991 — was, if not ahead of its time,
