Channing Tatum's X-Men spin-off Gambit lands director, release date

The long-gestating X-Men spin-off movie Gambit, that was all set to star Channing Tatum (and still is, we think), has thus far appointed and lost both Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman as director.

Gambit always was known for being a romantic, so it's only appropriate that his movie is opening on Valentine's Day.

It was recently reported that Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski was in talks for Gambit. Gambit has a script by Josh Zetumer and is produced by Tatum, Reid Carolin, Simon Kinberg, Lauren Shuler Donner. The movie is expected to explore the character's origins in the Guild of Thieves and the war between his LeBeau clan and the Boudreaux family, to which his love interest Bella Donna belongs.

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.

Tatum has always been attached to play the New Orleans-based superhero, who was portrayed by Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights) in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Fox has scheduled three movies in its expanding "X-Men" universe for 2018, with "New Mutants" set to open on April 13, "Deadpool 2" on June 1, and "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" on November 2.
