Another director has quit 'X-Men' spin-off 'Gambit'

  • Deadpool, New Mutants and Gambit all get new release dates; Gore Verbinski exits as director for Gambit

Other films, like The Ring and A Cure For Wellness, showed his directorial chops outside the arena of blockbuster tentpoles, and his addition to Gambit was largely seen as a promising development. Let's just run down this list for a quick recap.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes helmer Rupert Wyatt was attached to direct Gambit in 2015, but left a few months later.

You know where this is going, right? Now Gambit's lost another director, Gore Verbinski, just two months before the superhero movie is set to start filming in New Orleans. It's not clear what the reasoning is at the time of this writing.

According to "X-Men" mythology, Gambit was born in New Orleans as Remy Etienne LeBeau but was kidnapped from the hospital and raised by thieves.

YouTube Drops Star Logan Paul
YouTube says it has punished an American blogger over a video that appeared to show the body of a suicide victim. Game Of Thrones star Sophie Turner called Paul an "idiot" and said his apology was "self-praising".

Now, last we heard, the Gambit script was being rewritten to make it "more New Orleans".

This is definitely a passion project for Tatum, and if this movie ever does come to pass, we'll likely look back on this moment as a key turning point for the project - either to lament the fact that Tatum should have let it go, or to praise him for his devotion to telling the character's story.

The film has a script by Josh Zetumer and is being produced by Tatum, Reid Carolin, Simon Kinberg and Lauren Shuler Donner. He just might be able to pull this off, and he's also been looking to get behind the camera, developing potential directorial debuts such as Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock and The Son. I'm not so sure it does.

In light of Fox's mutant shake-up, one which resulted in new release dates for Deadpool 2, The New Mutants and Gambit - for the record, X-Men: Dark Phoenix was unaffected by the changes, and is still due to take flight on November 2nd - The Hollywood Reporter (h/t CBM) has offered some insight into why Gambit was delayed in the first place.
