BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Itís important that Gambit have a feel of its own rather than rehash previous stories and elements. Now we know how itís going to distinguish itself from the main X-Men movies.
s popular as superhero movies are, finding a director for one is apparently far from easy. Channing Tatum has been working on making a Gambit movie for years. Heís had pretty much everything he needed except a director.
If youíve been following the development of the X-Men spin-off movie Gambit, then you know that it has been in a bit of trouble recently.
The clock is ticking on finding a new director for Gambit after Rupert Wyatt exited the project, but now it appears that have three finalists that are up for the job.
Foxís Gambit isnít the first film ó nor the first superhero film ó to lose its director, but it was nonetheless disconcerting when Rupert Wyatt dropped out. So who would be an interesting enough name to man the helm on the Channing Tatum pic? The latest buzz is forming around Doug Liman.
Although Rupert Wyattís departure from Gambit was originally attributed to a scheduling conflict, it seems other issues may actually be to blame.
Apparently, Gambit has 99 problems, but Rogue ainít one ó which totally blows. Following the news that Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt dropped out of the solo Gambit film for Fox, Anna Paquin has come out to confirm that she will not be reprising her role in the film. Talk about a missed opportunity.
There are many things to consider when thinking about a possible director to make Gambit. Itís a filmmaker who should know how to shoot interesting and kinetic action, but you also want somebody who could find the proper tone to get the right amount of drama.
The Channing Tatum-fronted superhero flick Gambit can't catch a break. The latest hurdle it has to clear is a significant loss, too, as the director has reportedly jumped ship.
Although itís been confirmed that all X-Men films and spinoffs will take place in the same world, itís been unclear how much these characters will be interacting with each other, but now weíve learned there will be official crossovers in the future.
From an outsider's perspective, it seems like Rupert Wyatt's Gambit really needs to get a move-on, as it should be starting production soon but has yet to put some key pieces in place. The good news is that today it seems that the project may soon be getting one step closer towards being a reality.
Weíve only had two solo X-Men movies so far ó X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine, one of which was a major disaster. However, one X-Men actor isnít convinced the solo X-Men movies are always viable.
With the release of Josh Trankís Fantastic Four in theaters, the comic book movie season for 2015 has officially come to a close. Itís been a very interesting year for the genre.
Now that Channing Tatum is officially locked in to play the titular role of Rupert Wyatt's Gambit, the production can start looking at actresses who can play opposite the star as the female lead. According to new reports, the film has not yet zeroed in on exactly who should get the part, but it seems as though three frontrunners have emerged.
For the last couple of years Tatum has been pushing hard to make a Gambit movie happen, with himself in the role of the cajun mutant. Then, this past week there was a media explosion over reports that he was on his way off the project.
A new report indicates that Channing Tatum may drop out of playing Gambit due to his deal with 20th Century Fox falling apart. If Tatum does leave the film, these are the five actors we think could to the longtime X-Men character justice on the big screen.
Director Rupert Wyatt's Gambit movie may be in serious trouble now that it's been revealed that Channing Tatum could possibly leave the project. Whether or not he goes, however, the film will continue, and that means adding to the cast. Apparently while dealing with the Tatum situation, Fox is working to cast the movie's female lead, and it appears that Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol star Lea Seydoux is a candidate for the part.
When 20th Century Fox first announced that they would be making a Gambit movie, it was largely driven by the presence of Channing Tatum - who has been campaigning for the lead role in the project for a while now. Unfortunately, it now looks as though it might all be crumbling apart, as new reports are saying that the actor is making plans to leave the production.
With the First Class-led X-Men trilogy coming to an end, Fox is now investing in the future of its superhero franchiseÖliterally. Deadpool is already revving up for release, a New Mutants adaptation is somewhere down the line, and a Fantastic Four-X-Men crossover is under discussion, but Gambit will cost an arm and leg for the studio to make.
With a release date set for October of next year, Rupert Wyattís Gambit movie is expected to go into production very soonÖ but at this point it seems like the film still has a lot of stuff to take care of in pre-production. Channing Tatum is currently the only actor attached to the project, and itís extremely unlikely that 20th Century Fox plans to keep it that way.
