Cancellation of movieing, as well as the premiere of the movie "Gambit" due to the lack of a script that would satisfy its creators. Project producer Simon Kinberg spoke about this in an interview with FlickeringMyth.
"Unfortunately, we did not have a script at our disposal that would match the scale of the project. So we continue to work on the script. The work is already close to completion, that is, we are almost finished. And we hope that Channing Tatum, who many commitments for other projects will be ready to be movieed late this or early next year, "he said.
According to Kinberg, the latter version of the script "he really likes", but he declined to comment further on this.
Recall that the premiere of "Gambit" was originally announced on October 7, 2016, but in February 20th Century Fox studio officially announced its cancellation. Doug Lyman is still listed as the director, and in addition to Channing Tatum, Lea Seydoux is going to take part in the movie, who was supposed to play Belladonna. Whether the French actress will remain in the project has not been specified at the time of this writing.
Note that talk about movieing "Gambit" has been going on since 2014, but since then there have been no significant changes.
