|The X-Men spinoff "Gambit" has now lost Gore Verbinski - They've already lost both Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman.
Apparently it was just a scheduling thing.
Will this movie ever get made?

|Hopefully it does not get made until Gambit is RE-CAST|

|I think 20th Century Fox was using Gambit as a contractual placeholder for a Channing Tatum summer; but have continually delayed out of (for lack of a better term) buyer's remorse.
Gambit was announced in 2014 after Tatum's run of marketable success (Magic Mike, 21/22 Jump Street), but since then he hasn't anchored a film with a box office run that justifies putting him at the helm of a hundred-million dollar summer blockbuster. Its not personal, its business; and his return on investment just isn't high enough.
With the buyout of Fox by Disney, I'd expect to see Tatum's Gambit either rolled into an existing ensemble project (post-Phoenix X-Men reboot or X-Force) to determine if enough interest exists to do a solo film afterwards, or scrapped entirely & his contract rolled to a different film.

|Gore Verbinski gave the film some potential. Hopefully Tatum will be replaced in whatever form it goes forward in.|
