Joe Cornish And Shane Black Said To Be GAMBIT Director Contenders


We recently found out that Edge Of Tomorrow director Doug Liman was being courted to step in and take the helm of Fox's Gambit movie, and now we have two more names to add to the list: Attack The Block's Joe Cornish and Iron Man 3's Shane Black. More past the jump...



The Gambit movie may have lost original director Rupert Wyatt, but if one of the guys said to be in contention to replace him gets the gig, Channing Tatum and Fox will have landed on their feet.

Heroic Hollywood has heard that in addition to the previously reported Doug Liman, Shane Black and Joe Cornish are also on the studio's radar to helm the X-Men spinoff. Black has directed many fan-favorite flicks, most recently Marvel's Iron Man threequel, while Cornish has also worked with that studio as a writer on the Ant-Man screenplay. Since his acclaimed debut, Attack The Block, he's been lined up for several other big projects, but never landed any - could Gambit be the one?

Doug Liman In Final Negotiations To Direct Channing Tatum's Gambit Movie


20th Century Fox is in final negotiations with Doug Liman to direct the Gambit solo film, according to THR.
Liman met with Fox several times about the position, including a Thursday meeting, which apparently went smoothly. Previous reports claimed Channing Tatum, who will star as the card-tossing mutant, has been courting Liman ever since Rupert Wyatt unexpectedly exited the project 2 months ago.
The 50-year-old filmmaker is known for Swingers (1996), The Bourne Identity (2002), Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005) and Edge of Tomorrow (2014). He recently wrapped filming on an '80s drug cartel film, Mena, which reunited him with his Edge of Tomorrow star Tom Cruise.
Simon Kinberg (Fantastic Four, X-Men: Days of Future Past) will reportedly "exercise a strong hand as one of the producers." Liman previously worked with Kinberg, who wrote the Mr. & Mrs. Smith screenplay.

Channing Tatum's Gambit Described as Heist Movie and Sexy Thriller


Geek Łber-producer Simon Kinberg, who has his hands in both the Star Wars and X-Men franchises at the moment, talked to Collider about the next solo chapter in the latter universe, Gambit, and what to expect tonally. He said that each solo movie will take on its own feel, much like the solo comics do compared to big team affairs.
"Gambit will have its own different flavor and tone to it," Kinberg said, "[it] will be more of like a heist movie and a sexy thriller in a way."
He said that Deadpool, the first of three X-Men films scheduled for 2016, "has a very different, almost antithetical tone to the mainline X-Men movies," meanwhile.
Kinberg didn't confirm or deny previous director reports for Gambit, but did say "we have a director, it's somebody we're excited about and somebody I adore," and that he's hoping they'll make an announcement soon. This director has already been in meetings with Channing, producers, and the screenwriter Joshua Zetumer.
While he didn't say it outright, Kinberg hinted that the October 7, 2016 release date will probably be pushed back to 2017, as "we hope to start shooting next spring," and a special-effects super hero film will probably need more than 5 or 6 months for full production and post.

Channing Tatum's Gambit Starts Filming In New Orleans This March


Channing Tatum's Gambit will begin filming in Hollywood South this March, according to WGNO.
The X-Men solo film was supposed to begin filming in November 2015, but those plans were put on hold when director Rupert Wyatt unexpectedly exited the project in September. After a couple months, 20th Century Fox hired Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Edge of Tomorrow) to helm the project.
Tatum will play the card-tossing mutant, Remy LeBeau (Gambit), whose family come from a guild of thieves. He's a master-thief capable of stealing your wallet and your heart with his endless charm. Lea Seydoux (Spectre) is playing Belladonna Boudreaux, a childhood friend of Remy's in the comic whose family belongs to a rival guild of assassins. To unite the guilds, a marriage is arranged between the two.
As of right now, nobody know if any of the source material will be covered in the film, which the producer Simon Kinberg described as a PG-13 "heist movie and a sexy thriller in a way."

GAMBIT Production Start Date Pushed To Late 2016; Doug Liman Expected To Recast Supporting Roles

With director Doug Liman overseeing rewrites on Gambit, it's no surprise that production has been moved to late 2016. However, it sounds like the cast, outside of Channing Tatum, may be getting an overhaul.


An X-Men spin-off for the Ragin' Cajun Gambit with Channing Tatum (Hail, Caesar!) starring and Doug Liman (Edge Of Tomorrow) directing is certainly on the way, but it sounds like it'll be a little later than initially expected and for good reason.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that with Gambit currently in the midst of rewrites, which are being overseen by the Edge Of Tomorrow & Bourne Identity director, the film's production start date has unsurprisingly been moved to late 2016. The shift has also freed up Liman to direct The Wall, a psychological thriller, for Amazon Studios this summer before launching principal photography on Gambit in the fall. Additionally, The Wrap adds that Liman is expected to start his casting search from the ground up, meaning that Lea Seydoux (Spectre), who was cast as Bella Donna Boudreaux back in August 2015 and the only confirmed cast member outside of the long-attached Tatum, will possibly be recast barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Liman initially boarded the superhero spin-off back in November 2015 after Rupert Wyatt (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes) decided to bow out. Channing Tatum has been attached to the project since May 2015, and was officially confirmed last Halloween. No word on an expected release date, but a late 2017 release seems probable.

Channing Tatum Reportedly "Fully Committed" To GAMBIT, But Will He Still Join The DC Films Universe?

Despite speculation that Channing Tatum may have departed Gambit in preference of a role in the DC Films Universe, a new report offers some clarification on where things stand with the delayed spinoff...


There was a lot of speculation this weekend that Channing Tatum could be making his way to the DC Films Universe (more details on that can be found by clicking here), but now Latino-Review has weighed in with their thoughts on the matter. Apparently, they've reached out to a "deeply embedded source" who tells them that Fox is moving forward with Gambit and that Tatum remains committed.

That's fair enough, but could he still appear in the DC Films Universe? Fox don't seem to have the same non-compete clause it's thought Marvel Studios put in their contracts (hence why Fantastic Four star Michael B. Jordan is jumping ship to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Black Panther), and while the site says that the speculation is off the mark, it's not entirely clear whether that's referring to him leaving Gambit or both that and the actor being cast in an upcoming DC Comics adaptation.

Honestly, there's probably nothing to see here, but stranger things have happened, so we'll have to wait and see. For now, Gambit remains undated and the next comic book movie Tatum will be seen in is the sure to be brilliant Kingsman: The Golden Circle from Matthew Vaughn. What do you think?

Fox Eyeing Spring 2017 Start Date For GAMBIT; Josh Boone's NEW MUTANTS Will Be "Very Loyal To The Comics"


Well, it looks like Gambit has indeed been pushed back a couple of months due to director Doug Liman's current slate. Plus, we have a small update on Josh Boone's New Mutants and the next X-Men film!


Back in June, we received word that Doug Liman (Edge Of Tomorrow) had signed on to helm Lionsgate & Summit Entertainment's upcoming film adaptation of the young adult sci-fi thriller novel Chaos Walking and while it wasn't explicitly stated, the announcement seemingly suggested that another delay for 20th Century Fox's Gambit might be on the horizon, especially with Chaos Walking also eyeing a fall start date.

Yesterday, That Hashtag Show released their brief interview segment with producer/writer Simon Kinberg from the 42nd Saturn Awards and when asked about the status of the upcoming Channing Tatum-starrer, Kinberg revealed that the script, which Liman had been overseeing rewrites on for months, has finally been completed and then goes on to reveal when they plan on kicking off production: "Yeah, we have a great script on that, and hope to shoot that movie at the beginning or spring of next year." This shouldn't come as too much of a surprise as this was somewhat expected ever since Liman took over for Rupert Wyatt (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes) back in October and with him signing two new projects in the time since. Looking ahead, it seems more likely than not that Gambit will hit theaters on one of the two 2018 dates Fox has already slated for a Marvel release or if not then, then at an undetermined future date.

Channing Tatum Reportedly Still Attached To Star In GAMBIT

The X-Men spinoff currently has neither a release date nor a director, but producer Lauren Shuler Donner insists that Gambit is still happening. Should we believe her? Hit the jump for details...


Gambit was supposed to be released last October, but after losing both Rupert Wyatt (who left the project over creative differences) and Doug Liman (who decided to work on Justice League Dark instead), the X-Men spinoff finds itself without a director and still no confirmed release date.

However, producer Lauren Shuler Donner has now insisted that the movie is still moving forward with Channing Tatum set to play the ragin' Cajun. It was she who actually cast the actor after he expressed interest in the role of Gambit, so you have to believe that this is something of a passion project. That doesn't mean it will happen, though, and for a long time it's looked like the movie is in dire straits.

First Tatum wanted a pay rise, and then Fox wanted to slash the budget. With two directors now gone, it doesn't seem like it's going anywhere fast, and no one could now blame the actor for moving on.

When Channing Tatum's Gambit Movie Expects To Start Filming








The superhero cinematic universes all have varying degrees of uncertainty about their future projects. Marvel hasn't looked too far beyond it's Phase Three. DC changes its lineup every few weeks. And the X-Men timeline is in a state of development, with several major projects on the precipice of full-blown production. As Logan nears theaters, X-Men fans may be wondering what's going on with the announced but delayed Gambit movie. Well, it sounds like it has a time frame in mind.


CinemaBlend Events Editor Eric Eisenberg recently spoke with X-Men overseers Simon Kinberg and Hutch Parker about James Mangold's Logan, and the state of multiple X-Men movies. When we brought up Gambit, Kinberg confirmed to us:

Quote:
In terms of Gambit, that's a movie that we're still developing very actively, and Channing [Tatum] is incredibly committed to it. We plan to probably shoot that at the beginning of next year.
More to come....

Doug Liman Walk Away From JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK For The Same Reason He Left GAMBIT?

Recently, it was announced that Doug Liman would no longer be directing WB's Justice League Dark movie - a project he signed up for after departing Channing Tatum's Gambit movie at Fox.


If you recall Doug Liman was initially signed up to direct Fox's live-action Gambit movie starring Channing Tatum. However, he departing that project with the following explanation:

"I look for a personal connection to the movies I make and it may not be immediately obvious. You know, like whatís my connection to Jason Bourne? I have a deeply personal connection to that movie because itís all about Iran-Contra and my father ran the investigations into Iran-Contra. In every story I have a personal connection. The Wall, youíd be like what could this filmmaker from New York possibly have in common with these two soldiers pinned down in Irag? But The Wall is really about perseverance. Itís about picking yourself up and you just keep going and thatís something I have firsthand experience with. Not in war but in other aspects of life. With Gambit, I just never found that personal way in. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesnít."

After departing Gambit, Liman quickly signed up for the Justice League Dark movie (after Guillermo del Toro left the director's chair) but it was recently announced that he would also no longer captain that project. In an interview with IGN, Liman cites a different reason for leaving WB's film.

"I was really excited by the characters and that world, but Iím doing Chaos Walking for Lionsgate next and then Tom [Cruise] and I are hoping to do the sequel to Edge of Tomorrow so it just became a scheduling nightmare."

Could Liman's comments be an indication that WB wants to get the ball rolling on Justice League Dark sooner, rather than later? With Wonder Woman receiving favorable review scores and audience turnout, perhaps WB will focus more on its supernatural comic book properties?

Channing Tatum Confirms Heís Working On Gambit Right Now






It seems like Gambit is always in theatrical flux. The movie has been in development for quite some time, and but progress on the X-Men standalone has been slow going. 20th Century Fox is currently focusing on projects like New Mutants and Dark Phoenix, but Gambit isnít far off its mind. After all, Channing Tatum just admitted he is working on the film already.

ComicBook.com's Brandon Davis was able to snag Tatum for a brief question after the actor appeared at San Diego Comic-Con. It was there we asked if the actor was still playing Gambit, and hereís what the actor had to say:
ďYeah, of course. We're working on it right now."
For fans, it is reassuring to hear that Gambit is still alive and well. Tatum has long been attached to the role of Remy LeBeau, but other members of the filmís crew have not been so lucky. Earlier this year, reports surfaced director Doug Liman had exited the film. Producer Hutch Parker recently confirmed the project was still moving along as expected, but Liman detailed the problems Gambit will face with fans shortly after he dropped out.
ďYou know, itís a crowded field of superhero films so the challenge for Gambit or any of those other movies is finding its unique space and its unique take," Liman told IGN. "But, yeah, I think Simon Kinberg, who is producing it, is a great producer and heíll create something great out of it."
Fox has yet to announced a new director for Gambit, but fans are hoping to hear about a replacement soon. Limas left the project since he was unable to form a ďpersonal connectionĒ with the feature, so hereís to hoping the studio lands a new director who is all about the raging Cajun mutant next time around.

Channing Tatum Reveals The 'Gambit' Movie Is Starting Over


X



According to Channing Tatum, Gambit's many delays just might end up being a good thing.
Tatum, who is expected to play the X-Men character in 20th Century Fox's upcoming solo film, recently addressed the film's lengthy creative process in an interview with HeyUGuys. And as he explained, the film's script is essentially starting from scratch, after plenty of previous creative woes.
"Now weíre really getting to do some of the things weíve always wanted to do with the script." Tatum revealed. "Weíve just sort of started over."
The status of Gambit has been a bit of a mystery, with the film fluctuating in and out of development and production since 2014. But the project as a whole seems to be getting on track, judging by the update Tatum provided to ComicBook.com during last month's San Diego Comic-Con.
As Tatum has since explained, the delays allowed fellow Fox/Marvel properties Deadpool and Logan to break the mold of superhero storytelling - something Gambit's script had been trying to do.
"I think we got lucky," Tatum explained, "We got hit with some setbacks and it was all for a good reason. We were trying to do something completely different. We were trying to do something that this genre of movie hasnít seen before. We kept running into the same problems, and then Deadpool and Logan came through and kicked the doors down."
The film's script has come up quite a bit in early talks about the film, with everyone from Tatum to X-Men producer Simon Kinberg arguing that getting the script right is a top priority. Even Doug Liman - who was initially attached to direct the project - argued that the film had to carve out a 'unique space' in the pantheon of superhero properties.
But judging by Tatum's excitement towards Gambit's creative process, it sounds like this new version of the film will please fans once it ends up arriving.

RUMOR: JAMES BOND Star Daniel Craig Eyed To Play The Villainous Mr. Sinister In The GAMBIT Movie

Best to take this with that ever-ready pinch of salt for now, but a new rumor suggests that 20th Century FOX is eyeing none other than Daniel Craig (James Bond, Logan Lucky) to play Mr. Sinister in Gambit.





Last week, Splash Report shared what they claimed was a detailed plot synopsis for 20th Century FOX's Gambit movie. The breakdown revealed that Nathaniel Essex, A.K.A. Mr. Sinister, would be the primary villain of the film, and now we might just have an idea of which actor the studio is looking at to play him.

According to the site's
follow-up report, there are "conversations" about bringing in Daniel Craig - who recently appeared alongside Channing Tatum in Logan Lucky - to play Sinister in Gambit before reprising the role for other future X-Men movies.

We'll have to treat this as a rumor for now, but these guys have had some solid scoops in the past so it's definitely worth keeping an eye on. Of course, even if FOX is interested in the 007 actor for this role, there's no indication that he'll be as enthusiastic about it. We'll just have to wait and see how things shake out.

In the meantime, let us know what you think about the possibility of Daniel Crag playing Gambit's Mr. Sinister in the comments section below.

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN Director Gore Verbinski In Talks To Helm X-MEN Spinoff GAMBIT

After losing both Doug Liman and Rupert Wyatt, it sounds like 20th Century Fox is now zeroing in on Pirates of the Caribbean helmer Gore Verbinski to helm their Channing Tatum-led X-Men spinoff Gambit!





Deadline is reporting that Gore Verbinski has entered early negotiations with 20th Century Fox to helm their upcoming X-Men spinoff Gambit, which will star Channing Tatum (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) as the titular mutant hero.

If the deal closes, Verbinski will be the third director to board the project after Rupert Wyatt (Captive State), who exited in October 2015, and Doug Liman (American Made), who exited in August 2016.

The Hollywood Reporter's Borys Kit adds that the deal "could go either way at this stage" and that a critical meeting next week may determine whether or not Verbinski ultimately signs on for the long-gestating project.

Plot details remain under wraps, but Josh Zetumer (Patriots Day) penned the most recent version of the film's script. Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg will oversee the project for the studio while Tatum is also onboard as a producer with his Free Association partner Reid Carolin.

Verbinski is best known for directing the first three installments in Disney's billion-dollar Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and his resume also includes The Mexican, The Ring, The Weather Man, Rango, The Lone Ranger, and A Cure for Wellness. He is currently in pre-production on a new project, titled Spaceless.

Gambit Movie Gets Working Title Chess















After years stuck in production hell, Gambit may finally start filming with word that the movie has a working title. A few years back, news began emerging that Fox was in the market for a solo film focusing on popular X-Men character Gambit. With the prospect of Hugh Jackman finally leaving the role of Wolverine, the studio needed a new lead to anchor the franchise, and the charismatic, card-throwing mutant seemed like the perfect fit. But after casting Channing Tatum in the lead role, the film hasnít managed to make any other progress.
Like DCís The Flash, Gambit hasnít been able to hold onto a director. Despite the fanbase, the X-Men franchiseís success, and Tatumís undeniable star power, the film just canít seem to get made. And a few months ago, word broke that the entire narrative was starting over from scratch. The move seems to have finally helped the film click as just last week we learned that Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski may take over the film. Now, it looks like filming could be just around the corner.





Omega Underground is reporting that Gambit has a working title, the appropriately chosen ĎChess.í Naturally, the name doesnít hint at much beyond alluded to Remy LeBeauís nom de plume and penchant for gambling. What the title does reveal, however, is that production could be on the verge of starting.
<img title="Gambit Channing Tatum Gambit Movie Gets Working Title Chess" alt="Gambit Channing Tatum Gambit Movie Gets Working Title Chess" exify_intitialized="true">
It would certainly be unusual for a film to get a working title before it was set to start shooting. Of course, it would also be strange for a film to begin production with no confirmation of a director. Even then, pre-production would need to come first, with the director and crew assembling to craft story boards and go location scouting.
If the report is true, though, it could mean Verbinski is already on board. While even that news is still a rumor, it wouldnít be surprising. After all, itís been strange how much trouble this film has had in the first place. After Logan and Deadpool, Fox is riding high. And though Gambit doesnít have the same fanbase as the Merc with the Mouth, his solo film certainly isnít the biggest risk for Foxís Marvel franchise.
As we wait for more news on Gambit, weíve been learning a lot more about what it will deal with lately. Tatum has teased that his character will have an actual culture that will be touched on in the film. Meanwhile, a rumored draft of the script contained all sorts of connections to the rest of the X-Men universe. Thereís no telling what the final film will look like, but we could be closer than ever to Gambit finally becoming a reality.

X-Menís Gambit Movie Described As Crime/Heist Film









The upcoming and repeatedly delayed Gambit film, a spinoff of the X-Men movie franchise, will honor the mutant characterís roots as a thief. For years, Gambit remained stuck in a state of limbo despite boasting Channing Tatum as its star. The past few months however, have seen the filmís fortunes change. After Tatum teased the script was starting over from scratch a few months ago, word broke last week that Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean) is now at the helm. With a director potentially secured, things look to finally be moving along.
While Verbinski still hasnít been officially confirmed, yesterday news arrived that Gambit now has a February 2019 release date. Though exciting, it is worth taking the news with a grain of salt as this isnít the first time the film has locked in a date. Still, with Tatum in the lead role and a new script and director potentially in hand, itís only a matter of time before the X-Men spinoff gets off the ground. And when it does, it looks as if it will feature Remy LeBeau doing what he does best.


Omega Underground editor Christopher M reports that Gambit will indeed be a crime/heist film, no surprise given the protagonistís long history as a thief. While the report should be taken as just a rumor for now, itís worth keeping in mind Omega Undergroundís track record. He not only reported on GambitĎs working title yesterday, but usually has good information when it comes to superhero production news.
Itís also not a surprise to learn that the heist genre will be the focus of Gambit. Marvel Studios has had great success mixing superhero films with other distinct genres, and Fox is clearly attempting the same. Both Deadpool and Logan had their own vibe, and they both benefitted greatly from those choices. Meanwhile, the teaser for New Mutants proves that the X-Men universe is ready to start trying new things.
Films like Baby Driver and Logan Lucky this year showed how successful the heist film can still be at the box office, and it makes sense that more and more films are being pitched this way. Considering Gambitís ties to the Thieves Guild, his preference for playing cards, and his nom de plume, itís a smart move to have the criminal underworld and high-stakes job factor into the film. If Fox can marry all of these elements together, then Gambit could be both a fun and exhilarating addition to the X-Men universe.

The Lead Villain In GAMBIT May Have Been Revealed (And It's Not Who You're Expecting)

There have been rumblings that Mr. Sinister will be Gambit's big bad but a new report points to the upcoming X-Men spinoff actually having a female lead villain. Hit the jump for what we know so far.



Gambit was supposed to be released around this time last year but the signs have all been pointing to the movie simply never happening for a while now. Well, it recently landed a release date of February 14th, 2019 and a director in the form of Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean), so things are finally looking up for the Cajun superhero who will be played by Channing Tatum in the long overdue spinoff.

While recent rumours have pointed to Mr. Sinister being Gambit's lead villain, a new report reveals that Candra The Benefactress, a character best known as Red Death. In the comic books, she was a member of the immortal Externals and possessed extremely powerful telekinetic abilities. She was believed to have been killed by the X-Men after her power gem was destroyed, but has since returned with a new-found ability to feed on others' lifeforces. How much of that will be in the movie is obviously unclear.

However, considering the fact she controlled both the Thieves Guild and Assassins Guild in the source material, chances are she'll have a key role in Gambit even if her backstory is altered somewhat.

Gambit is expected to be inspired by Ocean's 11 and will take place both in the past and present as we see Remy LeBeau develop a relationship with Bella Donna and later get hired by the evil Mr. Sinister.

'Gambit' Recruits 'Mad Max' Costume Designer

The long-delayed Gambit movie is wasting no time now that things are moving forward on the X-Men spinoff project. The film can now add costume designer to the production team.
Omega Underground reports that Oscar-winning costume designer Jenny Beavan is now working on 20th Century Fox's Gambit project. According to the report Beavan, who won Oscars for both her work on The King's Speech and Mad Max: Fury Road, will be doing the costumes for Channing Tatum's Gambit as well as other mutant characters appearing in the film.



And with Gore Verbinski expected to direct the film, Beavan will be working with familiar company. Gambit will mark Beavan's second collaboration with the director with the pair having worked together on the horror flick A Cure for Wellness earlier this year.
The addition of Beavan to the Gambit team is the latest in updates for the previously stalled Gambit project. Earlier this week it was reported that the movie was still set to film in New Orleans, while last week the film's presumed working title, "Chess," was also revealed. While an official synopsis of the plot has yet to be provided, all of the recent updates have no doubt made Gambit fans happy. The film has long been in the works, but after a number of setbacks and delays nothing had progressed. Now, however, the film appears to be right on track and Fox has even provided an official release date for fans to mark on their calendars: February 14, 2019.
