‘Gambit’ film dead again at Fox, searching for another director

Gambit was supposed to be released in October 2016 but after director Gore Verbinski walked away from the movie due to apparent scheduling issues, its current release date moved from February 2019 to June 2019.

It was previously reported that production would begin on March 19th, but with Fox now looking for someone else to take charge of the spin-off, it’s been pulled from the studio’s schedule.

Filming was set to commence in the summer in Montreal, Quebec, the same city that X-Men: Apocalypse was shot in.

Whether or not Gambit will still head to New Orleans is now unclear.

Channing Tatum is still attached to star and it’s been described as a heist movie which heavily relies on comedy.
