Men Spinoff Gambit Loses Director Gore Verbinski

Men Spinoff Gambit Loses Director Gore Verbinski

Gambit is in need of a new director. Let's just run down this list for a quick recap. Verbinski joined the movie in October following the departures of Rupert Wyatt in October 2015 and Doug Liman in August 2016. Liman eventually bowed out as well, in all likelihood because he wasn't satisfied with whatever form the script was taking.

Beleaguered superhero properties are nothing new for Hollywood, but the problems that have plagued Channing Tatum's X-Men spin-off Gambit are one for the ages, with the film having lost its third director in a row.

The long-awaited Gambit solo movie has once again hit a snag on the way to production, this time losing director Gore Verbinski. It's not clear what the reasoning is at the time of this writing. This is an unusual move so late in the game, as the Fox film has been in casting mode and has been gearing up to shoot in New Orleans in March. Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski signed on to helm and a release date of February 14th, 2019 was announced.

'Spouse' includes same-sex partners, European Union court adviser says
Bulgaria, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Slovakia still grant no legal recognition to same-sex couples. They would have been compelled to do so had Mr Coman's partner been of the opposite sex.

All jokes aside, the decision for him to direct probably meant that the Gambit film was going to be a bit of a swashbuckling adventure with a significant bit of humor (like many of Verbinski's other projects), so this could be a significant loss to the project.

So, what now? Well, the release date can be easily changed and there's a good chance that this whole thing could be thrown over the side when the Fox - Disney merger begins to take shape.

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