Gambit‘s Director Bids Au Revoir (Because Mardi Gras, Maybe)

Mon dieu!

Channing Tatum is sticking by his Gambit guns, but director Rupert Wyatt (Planet of the Apes) has dropped out of the 2016 film. In a statement, Wyatt explained:

I was very much looking forward to working with my friend Channing and the team at Fox, but regrettably a push in the start date now conflicts with another project. I thank them for the opportunity, and I know that Gambit will make a terrific film.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, script changes or adjusting the shooting schedule to account for Mardi Gras may have extended the production and led to Wyatt being double-booked.

Thoughts, gang? Who would you like to see take over Wyatt’s position?
