In an effort to push out as many X-related films as possible before Disney comes in and rewrites the entire Universe, 20th Century Fox is moving forward with Kitty Pryde and Gambit (finally) films.

Tim Miller, who directed the first Deadpool film, is set to bring a standalone Kitty Pryde movie to the big screen. The character was previously played by Ellen Paige in X3 and is also known as Shadowcat. Now, with the merger still in development and likely we won’t see anything until next year at the SOONEST; this movie would have to be fast-tracked. So for now, let’s just say that it’s In Development and could stay there a very long time.

Gambit on the other hand, finally has a March shooting date. The movie has been LOOONNNGGG in development and I honestly never thought it was going to happen. Actually, I still don’t. So many things can happen before a movie comes out, we’ll just see; but for now the production is expected to be taking place in New Orleans in a couple of Months. Channing Tatum is still attached to play the character and bring the ‘Ragin’ Cajun’ to life.
