Director Gore Verbinski Exits GAMBIT Movie

Over the years, Fox’s Gambit movie starring Channing Tatum has struggled to keep a director. Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman were both attached before dropping out. However, Gore Verbinski came on board last fall, and the studio set a release date for Valentines Day 2019. Also, Lizzy Caplan was in talks to join as the film’s female lead.

Well, the saga continues. According to Deadline, Verbinski has dropped out of Gambit, citing scheduling conflicts. As of right now, the film still has its 2019 release date, and Tatum is still attached to star. Production was expected to begin this spring, but it’s unknown how that will be affected by a new director.

This marks the third time that a director has left Gambit. I don’t know what it is with this movie, but it keeps hitting roadblock after roadblock. Hopefully, they find a new director soon and get back on track.

Stay tuned for more as we have it.
