It’s official: Gore Verbinski is set to direct the Gambit film starring Channing Tatum. But there is more as 20th Century Fox has officially scheduled the film to come out on February 14, 2019!
So if you don’t have plans yet for Valentine’s Day in 2019, make it extra special with some X-Men action! Production will supposedly start sometime next year. Gambit is being executive produced by Tatum, Reid Carolin, Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner. Perhaps 2019 will be another big year for the X-Men Universe as 2018 is packed with X-Men films.
