Gore Verbinski No Longer Directing Gambit

Deadline reports that Pirates of the Caribbean and The Ring helmer Gore Verbinski, who was set to direct the X-Men spin-off, has exited the project due to scheduling issues. 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. He was the third filmmaker connected to the project, replacing Rupert Wyatt - who in turn had stepped in when Doug Liman left the film.

Free Association's Tatum and Reid Carolin are producing the film with X-Men overseers Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg.

The film was expected to go into production in March, which now seems unlikely. This is something which other studios seem to struggle with as they regularly announce shifts in release dates as they struggle to align their planned schedules versus actual delivery. "We were trying to do some things that we actually weren't allowed to do, and they just smashed down the doors, so we're giving it a bit of a rethink".

Essentially, it will be trading places with another of Fox's "X-Men" films, "The New Mutants", which had been scheduled for June 7, 2019, but which will now land February 22, 2019. His last film, A Cure for Wellness, grossed just $26 million worldwide on a reported production budget of $40 million, not including P&A. Gambit was last seen on-screen in the terrible X-Men Origins: Wolverine and was played by Taylor Kitch.

Channing Tatum is in my mind a good choice for the role but they've got to get the right director on-board and make sure that the script is ideal. It has been in development since Grover Cleveland was in office (the first time).
