20th Century Fox Moves Dates of Several X-Men Films

A Hollywood Reporter story claimed that Wyatt felt micro-managed by executives at Fox, and chose to depart the film rather than stick with something he didn't necessarily see eye-to-eye with them on.

Nothing further is known at this time, but we're guessing - thanks to 20th Century Fox's ongoing success in the X-Men spin-off sub-genre - that yet another director will be announced any time now. After news broke of Verbinski's exit, Fox said Gambit has pushed back its release date of February 14, 2019, to June 7, 2019.

Gambit is expected in theaters on June 7, 2019.

Deadline reports that Pirates of the Caribbean and The Ring helmer Gore Verbinski, who was set to direct the X-Men spin-off, has exited the project due to scheduling issues.

Also unclear is whether the move marks a change in direction for the film, perhaps prompted by Disney's impending acquisition of Fox.

At this point, I'm starting to wonder if we're ever going to see this film.

That shuffling at the top has prompted repeated delays in the film's production, which has been in active development since 2014.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt was the man in the directors' chair for awhile, before giving way to Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman.

In the comics, Remy LeBeau, a.k.a. Gambit, is a mutant with the ability to manipulate objects using kinetic energy.

Budget details for the film were unavailable, although its original 2015 filing with the state film office indicated at the time that it was operating with a $155 million budget.
