No one wants to direct Channing Tatum’s Gambit movie

Gore Verbinski has joined the growing list of directors who want nothing to do with Gambit. According to Deadline, the Pirates of the Caribbean helmer has dropped out of the X-Men spin-off, making him the third director to do so. (Going back as far as 2015, Doug Liman and Rupert Wyatt were previously lined up.) Channing Tatum, who’s been set to produce and star as the playing card-flinging mutant throughout the staff changes, remains attached. It’s not clear whether 20th Century Fox will still try to make the Valentine’s Day 2019 release currently on their schedule. It’s likewise unclear whether Disney’s impending Fox buyout and its marrying of Marvel properties will at this point kill the project anyway. For now, the only certainty is that there isn’t a director alive that wants to sit through weeks of listening to Channing Tatum attempt a Cajun accent.
