It’s starting to look like Gambit will have multiple shooting locations as Omega Underground has learned from a local source that the film will be shooting a large chunk of the film in New Orleans, spending ten weeks filming in the city to be exact starting. The NOLA shoot will begin sometime in March.
Our expectation is that they’ll do some exterior shooting and then stage work at Big Easy Studios, where Fox shot Logan and Dawn of The Planet of the Apes.
This would only be a little over two months, giving the impression that Gambit will be seeking other filming locales than just New Orleans.
Two other possible locales we think could be good candidates include Paris and London, that’s if Bella Donna is still expected to be Parisian in the film and British mutant Mister Sinister (Daniel Craig rumored at one point) shows up.
There’s actually exceedingly good chance production could head to the United Kingdom due to another Channing Tatum project shooting there during Gambit’s filming schedule.
Channing Tatum just happens to be producing another comic book film titled Zombie Brother, which will be directed by Kung Fury’s David Sandberg. It’s expected to be filming in London between March-June. As a producer, Tatum might want to be close to that shoot and we know that New Orleans is unlikely the only locale.
One potential stage location could be Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden. Tatum just happened to film Kingsman: The Golden Circle (another Fox comic book film) there.
At the moment, New Orleans is the only location confirmed but we’ll keep you posted if anything changes about secondary locations on the film.
Gambit is set for release on February 14th, 2019.
