Gore Verbinski No Longer Directing Gambit

'X-Men' Spinoff 'Gambit' Loses Director Gore Verbinski Gore Verbinksi Pulls Out Of 'Gambit' | Deadline

He turned up in the very bad X-Men Origins: Wolverine, played by trying-so-hard-to-make-him-a-thing Taylor Kitsch, and was quickly forgotten about after the fact. Tatum was replaced in that film by Taylor Kitsch, and considering its bad reputation, it seems to safe to say that the actor dodged a bullet.

At this point, I'm starting to wonder if we're ever going to see this film.

Gambit, the member of the X-Men whose very name implies a certain amount of luck (even though his actual powers have nothing whatsoever to do with that) simply can't catch a break when it comes to directors. The project was expected to begin production this March in New Orleans, but it's unclear if that's still the case.

If he gets tagged and doesn't get to test free agency, then things might get sticky. He added that he'd "probably be done" playing football if he sat out all of 2018.

Nothing further is known at this time, but we're guessing - thanks to 20th Century Fox's ongoing success in the X-Men spin-off sub-genre - that yet another director will be announced any time now. Wyatt pulled out in 2015, and the project continued more or less as planned until Liman, too, exited the next year. 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.

Despite these ongoing setbacks, Channing Tatum still remains attached to star in Gambit, whenever the movie actually gets made.

Though it seems like Fox still feels excited about the troubled comic book movie project, this new set back is definitely troubling. 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.
