Gambit Loses Director, Gets Release Date

Director Gore Verbinski is parting with the production, according Variety, The Hollywood Reporter and other industry trade publications. Let's just run down this list for a quick recap.

Wyatt was replaced in November by Doug Liman, but he would go on to leave the project in August 2016. Liman eventually bowed out as well, in all likelihood because he wasn't satisfied with whatever form the script was taking. The project was expected to begin production this March in New Orleans, but it's unclear if that's still the case.

You know where this is going, right? 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. It's not clear what the reasoning is at the time of this writing. Not just in their ability to pull off successful movie after successful movie though, but also in how they are able to plan big blockbusters so far in advance and actually still mostly hit the intended dates that they plan to. Star Channing Tatum is still very much committed, and the studio wants to release the movie, but with Fox now needing to search for a new director which will likely involve even more pre-production changes, it only adds turmoil to what is already a seemingly plagued production. Previously set for release on Valentine's Day 2019, "Gambit" is now set to arrive June 7, 2019.




For anyone who watched X-Men in the '90s or is familiar with the comics, Gambit is one of those characters who has yet to get a fair shake in terms of adaptations.

In addition Deadpool 2 moves from June 1, 2018 to May 18, 2018, while The New Mutants will now be released February 22, 2019 instead of April 13, 2018.
