While Disney's Marvel Films have been PG-13 rated, maximizing the potential audience, Tatum said at July's Comic-Con International in San Diego that "Gambit" was at that time being reimagined in the wake of the success of "Deadpool" and "Logan", two Fox-owned "X-Men" spinoffs that broke the superhero-movie mold by embracing R ratings.
He turned up in the bad X-Men Origins: Wolverine, played by trying-so-hard-to-make-him-a-thing Taylor Kitsch, and was quickly forgotten about after the fact. Last November, Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex, Cloverfield) was hired as the female lead opposite Tatum, and the movie was given a release date of February 2019. Still, it's an odd choice so close to the planned production start, which was to begin in New Orleans in March. It's also possible that Disney's looming acquisition of 20th Century Fox and thus, Gambit, could've played a part in the decision, especially given Disney's strong relationship with Verbinski thanks to the Pirates of the Caribbean films. Then again, when it comes to this particular movie, we won't be able to rest easy until production has kicked off in earnest, as there's been far too many false starts and stumbles. The departure was due to scheduling conflicts and Tatum is still set to star. Other films, like The Ring and A Cure For Wellness, showed his directorial chops outside the arena of blockbuster tentpoles, and his addition to Gambit was largely seen as a promising development.
Created by Chris Claremont and Jim Lee in 1990, Gambit, a New Orleans native mutant, quickly became a fan favorite due to his kinetic energy manipulation abilities and penchant for stealing.
Blue Jays, Donaldson avoid arbitration with record deal

Gambit, as you know, is a long-gestating X-Men spin-off to be centered around - you guessed it - Gambit, the staff-carrying, card-throwing mutant with a sassy cajun accent. Rupert Wyatt, Doug Liman and Gore Verbinski are all talented filmmakers with distinct creative visions, but there's an argument to be made that they might not have the same connections with the Gambit source material that someone like Tim Miller had with Deadpool, or James Mangold had with Logan.
We wonder what's going to happen to the film now that it's facing another major set back.
