Gambit executive producer Simon Kinberg has confirmed that the movie will take a little longer to come to the big screen than first announced.

The film, starring Channing Tatum, had an original slot of sometime in 2016 but Kinberg, speaking to Slashfilm, said this wasn’t likely to happen now.

I think the truth is when you have these movies that need a very special and unique tone, it takes a little while to find that tone,” he said.

I hope that Gambit doesn’t take ten years, but it takes a little honing to get that tone and that voice exactly right. The character has such a specific voice in the comic in the same way that Deadpool has a specific voice in the comic, that we want to make sure that we capture that voice on the page. Really it’s just about getting a screenplay that is worthy of that character, and I think we’re really close right now”.

Doug Liman remains attached to direct the film while Tatum is still on board in the title role.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
