The Gambit movie has hit a major stumbling block as it totally went on the back burner and missed its 2017 release date. In fact, the film was supposed to have joined Logan this year as one of Fox’s releases. Unfortunately, the film was never made. But now it seems that Fox is looking to put its back into the X-Men spinoff, which will star Channing Tatum with Gore Verbinski in the director’s seat. The studio has even pencilled in a release date, which will see Tatum’s Gambit released in cinemas on 14th February 2019.
Gigantic Gets Scrapped
Disney is no longer going to produce its Jack and the Beanstalk animated movie, Gigantic. The animated feature was initially supposed to be released in November 2018 but it would seem that Disney has soured on the project all together. Although the news won’t go down well with fans, Disney isn’t short on animated films. Scheduled to hit cinemas in November 2018 and November 2019 are Wreck-It Ralph 2 and Frozen 2 respectively.
Sylvester Stallone To Direct Creed 2
The sequel to Creed is about to begin production with Sylvester Stallone set for the director’s chair. With Ryan Coogler busy helming Black Panther, Stallone is perhaps the best man for the job seeing that he kick started the franchise. The sequel though has some linkage with the original series, with Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren) returning with his son to set up a fight with Adonis Creed. The Creed sequel is due to be released in 2019.
