Simon Kinberg on the distinct tones between upcoming X-Men films.


Collider spoke with DEADPOOL, X-MEN: APOCALYPSE and GAMBIT producer Simon Kinberg, who described how each upcoming film has its own unique style.

“I mean Deadpool obviously has a very different, almost antithetical tone to the mainline X-aid. “The X-Men movies are dramatic and almost operatic, whereas Deadpool is irreverent and hysterical and sort of a dirty R-rated comedy in many ways. an d Gambit will have its own different flavor and tone to it, will be more of like a heist movie and a sexy thriller in a way.”

On collaborating towards makng the best solo venture for Gambit, Kinberg said “…we’ve been spending a lot of time together,he said of Channing Tatum, who’s starring and producing, along with Reid Carolin and creenwriter Josh Zetumerust working on the script, and we hope to start shooting next Spring.”

Fox had originally scheduled Ocotber 7, 2016 for the film’s release, before script changes and an increased budget pushed production back by months and reportedly led to director Rupert Wyatt bowing out. . Kinberg seemingly confirmed the date was likely not going to happen.
