After a long period of calm, news of the blockbuster Gambit finally began to surface. Just recently, rumors leaked on the Internet that Daniel Craig could play the main antagonist of the film, and now the Deadline portal is revealing the name of a potential director of the project.|
Gore Verbinski is in talks with 20th Century Fox to lead the filming of Gambit, according to the source. The main role in the film is still assigned to Channing Tatum. The major announced two years ago that the actor will play the role of Remy LeBeau, a mutant with the ability to control kinetic energy. Since then, much has changed in the X-Men universe. In addition to giving Hugh Jackman goodbye to Wolverine, the studio has redefined its approach to superhero films following the success of Deadpool and Logan.
When viewers' interest in film comics gradually fades away, film companies are trying to diversify the genre in every possible way. Gore Verbinski has his own unique style, which can be discerned in any of his works, be it Pirates of the Caribbean or animated Rango. True, the director's latest creation, the horror film "Medicine for Health", did not meet the expectations of moviegoers and as a result failed at the box office.
Previously, "Gambit" attracted the attention of Rupert Wyatt and Doug Lyman, but due to constant delays, both filmmakers refused to work on the project. However, Channing Tatum believes that the current situation will only benefit the blockbuster.
