Hey, Do Any Of You Folks Wanna Direct GAMBIT?

Gore Verbinski

Gore Verbinski, who had come aboard to direct the long-in-the-works X-Men spinoff Gambit, is pulling off of the 20th Century Fox movie. Gore Verbinski has been attached for a few months now after the project seemed adrift, and things seemed to be going so well that there have been reports that Gambit was set to begin filming in March of this year in New Orleans.

Flight of the Conchords Returns with New Jemaine Clement, Bret McKenzie Special
The show comes nine years after the end of their self-titled TV show for the broadcaster ended after two seasons and 22 episodes. The guitar-based digi-bongo acapella rap-funk-comedy folk duo will be returning to HBO for special in May 2018 this year.

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. Despite being a regular fixture in animated versions of the X-Men, Gambit has to date only appeared in one feature, that being the poorly received X-Men Origins: Wolverine. That usually means that we can count on Gambit finding a new director and coming out when it was originally expected. This was an amicable split, we hear, owing to scheduling issues with several other projects on the director's plate. FOX will once again have to go on the hunt for another director, and it's anyone's guess as to how long that process could take. Wyatt pulled out in 2015, and the project continued more or less as planned until Liman, too, exited the next year.

Indian Army jawans injured during practice drill
Three Indian Army soldiers fell off a helicopter after the rope slipped off during a practice drill ahead of Army Day parade. PTI reported that all exercises requiring security forces to slither down to the drop zone have been suspended by the Army.

That shuffling at the top has prompted repeated delays in the film's production, which has been in active development since 2014. Even then though, said director would have to be fine with using the current script.

Trump Defends Surrogate Who Called Him a Genius in Contentious CNN Interview
President Donald Trump , who regularly insults CNN as "fake news", declared Miller "destroyed" Tapper in their Sunday face-off . They praised Tapper for not tolerating Miller's political propaganda and refusing to let Trump's aide run his show.

Though it seems like Fox still feels excited about the troubled comic book movie project, this new set back is definitely troubling. For now though, fans can only wait and see what FOX decides to do.
