The solo Gambit film has had a rough time making it to the big screen, but is now one step closer to becoming a reality. 20th Century Fox has revealed the troubled project is scheduled for release on February 14th, 2019 according to Deadline.
Channing Tatum is still set to star with Gore Verbinski recently announced as directing. Fox found much success with releasing Deadpool around the same time in 2016. I think an early calendar release will be beneficial to the film, assuming it actually sticks and the project doesn’t fall apart again.
As a kid who grew up on the 90s X-Men animated show, Gambit was my second favorite behind Wolverine. I hope the character is done justice whenever he does receive his big screen treatment.
