Director Gore Verbinski exits Fox's Gambit movie

Pirates of the Caribbean filmmaker Gore Verbinski has exited the Channing Tatum X-Men spinoff, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. One assumes that the scheduled March production start will have to be called off, unless of course FOX can find a replacement director within the next two months. But without a director, it seems like fans will waiting a while longer to see the card-throwing Cajun on the big screen again.

Verbinski is the third helmer to join, then subsequently leave, the film over the past few years, following both Rupert Wyatt (who bailed in 2015) and Doug Liman (who backed out in 2016).

That shuffling at the top has prompted repeated delays in the film's production, which has been in active development since 2014.

It's a shame, because it actually seemed as if the Gambit movie was finally making some progress. After news broke of Verbinski's exit, Fox said Gambit has pushed back its release date of February 14, 2019, to June 7, 2019. 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 could easily scrap the whole thing: Tatum has never appeared on screen in character before, and they haven't made any in-universe decisions that rely on that character specifically showing up. This year alone, Fox is releasing Deadpool 2 on May 18, 2018, followed by X-Men: Dark Phoenix on November 2, 2018. "We make movies because we want to tell great stories".
