Not a ton of news to report on Gambit. I gather there is at least a rough script, and producer Simon Kinberg has hinted that it might even have a romantic comedy vibe (if so, I called it!).
However, with the Disney deal in the works, I imagine that puts this movie in an awkward spot. Fox is going to continue production on the assumption that nothing will change, but with casting still in progress and filming not set to even begin until next spring, it's likely that Gambit will get caught in the middle. Especially if Disney intends to bring the Xmen into the MCU.
The whole thing sounds kinda dumb to me, and I have trouble seeing Tatum in the role, but I've been wrong enough to have learned my lesson about assuming.
