‘Gambit’ Movie: Mega Budget For the Movie Announced; Channing Tatum Starts Filming For 2016 Film Release

It all started with a solo “Wolverine” movie. “Deadpool” and “Gambit” were the ones who were thought to be the worthy characters to get a solo movie. It is being said that the “Gambit” movie has been in discussions for a while and due to the absence of people passionate about it, the movie was not able to see the light of the day. However after Channing Tatum and director Rupert Wyatt, things started to fall in place and the movie got going. In a latest update, the movie’s budget was revealed and it is going to be a big one. Read on.

According to Screen Rant, the Tatum-led movie has some updates that might intrigue many. The movie’s production budget, in particular, is something that tells you how big the project is going to be. The movie that is beginning production on Oct. 13, 2015, after having started with pre-production in June itself will be shooting till February next year. With months of preparation going into the making of the movie, fans can expect another hit for the franchise. The budget, however, remains to be the most impressive component in all of this.

Louisiana Economic Development has a website called Fast Lane that recently revealed the budget of the movie. According to it, the budget is said to be somewhat close to $154.9 million, out of which about $111 million will be invested in the state with a total Louisiana payroll of $28 million. In accordance with this at least 431 production jobs have been listed and with the movie releasing on Oct. 2016, once it completes shooting it will have more than enough time to complete the post production.

The budget does appear to be bigger than what was expected, as the story will delve more into the life of the card throwing Cajun mutant Remy LeBeau. Perhaps the movie will involve a lot of high-octane action sequences that will prove to be an integral part of the movie and maybe fans will get to see not just one mutant but others as well.
