Well, this won’t come as much of a surprise, seeing as it’s Gambit we’re talking about, but according to Omega Underground the troubled X-Men spinoff has been pulled from 20th Century Fox’s production schedule following the departure of director Gore Verbinski last month.
The film, which has Channing Tatum attached to play the mutant Remy LeBeau, was slated to begin shooting in March under Verbinski, and it was thought that the studio was still aiming to stick to that schedule even after his departure. However, with a replacement yet to be found, it seems the project is now once again in limbo, although Omega Underground is suggesting a summer shoot in possible.
Gambit is currently scheduled for release on June 7th 2019, having been pushed back from its original date of February 14th 2019. The project was first announced way back in 2014, and has since passed through the hands of Verbinski and fellow directors Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow).
