Channing Tatum’s Gambit film has been in the works for a long time. At times the progress has been slow, but it now looks like they are speeding up the process.

According to a report from Variety, Lizzy Caplan is in talks to join the cast of Gambit. She will reportedly be playing the female lead in the superhero flick. A spokesperson for Fox declined to comment on the report, but sources claim it’s pretty much a done deal.

Variety gives us more details on the film…

“The X-Men spinoff stars Channing Tatum as Gambit, a ragin’ Cajun whose ability to control kinetic energy enables him to weaponize playing cards and other projectiles. He’s also pretty handy with a bō staff. In the comics, Gambit was a member of the Thieves Guild before joining the X-Men. “Pirates of the Caribbean” director Gore Verbinski will slide behind the camera on the film. It’s eyeing a Feb. 14, 2019 debut.”

We have to imagine filming will take place in the early part of 2018, so we will probably be hearing more casting news in the coming weeks.
