While Gambit has finally landed a director and release date, other aspects of the production need to come together before filming begins early next year. Crew and casting hirings are the next big step for Fox.
Omega Underground has learned that the studio has hired Oscar-nominated production designer Jess Gonchor, best known for his work with the Coen Brothers.
His credits include True Grit, No Country For Old Men, Inside Llewyn Davis, Burn After Reading, Live By Night, A Serious Man, and Moneyball. Jess has previously worked with both Gore Verbinski and Channing Tatum on films such as The Lone Ranger, Foxcatcher and Hail, Caesar!
Gambit is expected to begin filming sometime between January and February with some of the production filming in New Orleans. Fox has slated it’s release date for February 14th, 2019.
