Gambit Spinoff Release Date Pushed After Film Loses Another Director

Share

It's a bad sign for "Gambit", which has sputtered in development limbo for quite some time, despite a strong commitment from Fox and still-attached titular star Channing Tatum. The character had a brief appearance in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, played by Taylor Kitsch. Updated with Gambit's new release date. Tatum came back aboard for a Gambit solo movie in 2014, only for things to never come together for the project overall. That usually means that we can count on Gambit finding a new director and coming out when it was originally expected. The project was creatively reworked following the success of Fox's recent R-rated superhero movies like Logan and Deadpool, but Verbinski, who joined last October, has jumped ship, leaving this film without a director for the third time.

CBO: Reauthorizing CHIP Will Save $6 Billion
The federal government paid almost $14.5 billion for CHIP expenses in fiscal 2016, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation . But after Congress approved a short-term spending plan on December 21, ALL Kids withdrew those warnings for the time being.

Deadline says Verbinski's parting of the ways is amicable ("scheduling issues"), and that Channing Tatum, who's always been attached to the film in the titular role, is still onboard. Hopefully, this won't push back production too much, as filming was set to begin in March, with New Orleans playing host to the long-gestating X-Men project for a total of 10 weeks. FOX will once again have to go on the hunt for another director, and it's anyone's guess as to how long that process could take. Pirates of the Caribbean filmmaker Gore Verbinski is the latest director to part ways with the X-Men spin-off movie, which was rumored to start production this March. Then, Tatum's Gambit could conceivably make his debut in an MCU installment, and not have to carry his own film right off the bat.
