It seems some thing has found us…

Crawling its way into theatres on January 18, 2008, today marks the tenth anniversary of Cloverfield!

Directed by Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes) and co-produced by J. J. Abrams (Star Trek) and Bryan Burk (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Cloverfield follows a group of six New Yorkers as their city is attacked by a gigantic, building-sized monster.

Starring Lizzy Caplan (Mean Girls), Jessica Lucas (Evil Dead), Michael Stahl-David ("Narcos"), and then-newcomer T.J. Miller (Deadpool), the unique sci-fi thriller is presented as “found footage” from a personal camcorder and offers a modernized take on the beloved creature feature genre. Filmed on an estimated budget of $25M, Cloverfield has since earned its place in the monster movie food chain,

Director Gore Verbinski Exits ‘Gambit’

The road to the ‘Gambit‘ solo film just got a little longer, as Gore Verbinski (A Cure for Wellness) has become the latest director to leave the film. THR is reporting that the long-gestating project is now in search for a new director. Back in 2015, we discussed who we thought should play Gambit in his solo film, but shortly thereafter, Channing Tatum closed a deal to produce and star as the titular character. Shortly thereafter, director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) joined the project, but left soon thereafter due to “creative differences”, as the studio and director had different visions for the film.

Next, Doug Lyman jumped aboard the project in August 2016, but was unable to find “a personal connection to the story” while developing the film. The film then was re-conceptualized after having massive success with R-rated superhero properties in both ‘Deadpool‘ and ‘Logan‘. Verbinski

Channing Tatum's Gambit Movie Loses Director Gore Verbinski

Channing Tatum's Gambit Movie Loses Director Gore Verbinski
The long-gestating Gambit movie has just hit another huge snag. Director Gore Verbinski, best known for his work on the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, has exited the project. Not much is known about the details of his departure at this time, but "scheduling issues" were cited and it's said to be amicable. Even if that's true, and considering how close this movie is to production, this represents a major problem for Fox, while nobody has said this is happening yet, it's possible the movie could be delayed, depending on how this all shakes out.

Channing Tatum, who has been attached to star in Gambit for several years and has been producing it as a passion project, is still on board. Now it's just a matter of finding a new director. The fact that this is the third director to exit the X-Men spin-off is a bit troubling at this point.

Gambit has lost yet another director

Mike Cecchini Jan 11, 2018

The Gambit movie has lost yet another director. Will it ever get made?

Gambit, the member of the X-Men whose very name implies a certain amount of luck (even though his actual powers have nothing whatsoever to do with that) simply can't catch a break when it comes to directors. Let's just run down this list for a quick recap...

RiseOf The Planet Of The Apes director Rupert Wyatt was the man in the directors' chair for awhile, before giving way to Edge Of Tomorrow director Doug Liman. Liman eventually bowed out as well, in all likelihood because he wasn't satisfied with whatever form the script was taking. 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

We are hearing that the planned Gambit movie is finally set to go before cameras this coming March, so reports Nola. Channing Tatum will lead the cast of the X-Men movie spin-off, which is now being directed by Gore Verbinski (A Cure For Wellness).

Gambit movie set to shoot this March

The Gambit movie has been in development over at 20th Century Fox for quite some time and has had a variety of filmmakers attached to direct, including Edge Of Tomorrow and American Made helmer Doug Liman. Gore Verbinski was attached to the project at the tail end of 2017, and is set to get things rolling in just two months time for a potential release on Valentine’s Day 2019. That date is a very popular one, particularly with Fox who have had huge success with comic-book fare in the last couple of years, in 2017 with Logan and the year before

Gambit Gearing Up For A Production Start In March, Budget Reportedly Revealed

It won’t be too much longer before film fans clock eyes on Channing Tatum’s Remy LeBeau.

Truth be told, the former Magic Mike star has been attached to the card-wielding mutant for years – and we do mean years – but it looks as though that unwavering loyalty is about to pay off dividends, as Gambit is within arm’s reach of entering production in earnest.

As reported by Omega Underground, the spinoff, one which is coming by way of Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean), will begin filming in March, when New Orleans will play host to the long-gestating X-Men project for a total of 10 weeks. Perhaps most interesting of all is the alleged budget, as Nola mentions $155 million. Chalk this up as an early estimate, though, as Nola appears to be citing an old listing dated for 2015.

Because in only two years, Gambit has changed locations and tapped a new director,

Why Is Channing Tatum's Gambit Budget So Insanely High?

Why Is Channing Tatum's Gambit Budget So Insanely High?
It looks like Gambit is going to be a potentially very expensive movie. Despite some uncertainty, now that Disney is officially purchasing most of 21st Century Fox, it looks like Channing Tatum's long-gestating X-Men spin-off is still going into production this March and won't be tabled as a result of the Disney merger. One of the last superhero movies being made before Fox folds into the Mouse House is possibly going to be one of the more expensive ones the studio has made, if some newly revealed budget details are to be believed.

According to a new report, it looks like Gambit may cost $155 million to make. The shoot is said to last for 10 weeks in New Orleans and will start this March. $155 million is incredibly expensive, especially for a character that hasn't yet proved to have appeal for wider audiences. Though, Gambit has been a fan-favorite character to

The Room’s Tommy Wiseau would like to make a Star Wars movie

Notoriously bad actor-director Tommy Wiseau, who rose to fame in cult ‘so bad, it’s good’ movie The Room, has said he would like to make a Star Wars film.

The mysterious filmmaker told his Twitter followers he would “absolutely” like to direct a Star Wars movie, but added he would “prefer to act” in one if given the opportunity.

He then issued a direct offer to Lucasfilm and producer Kathleen Kennedy to contact him, in the sort of astounding display of self-confidence that is typical of Tommy Wiseau.

Yes! Absolutely! but I am very busy, so I would prefer to act.#StarWars can contact me -> https://t.co/tQUEyFfJOW https://t.co/96aoGEIyo9

Wiseau released The Room in 2003, having spent six million dollars of his own money to make the movie, which was conceived as a weighty drama at the level of Tennessee Williams.

Channing Tatum's Gambit Delays Shooting Until March 2018

Channing Tatum's Gambit Delays Shooting Until March 2018
The long-awaited Gambit movie has hit a slight snag. Channing Tatum has been trying to get this movie off the ground for a long time and, lately, the production has been picking up steam. Recently, it was reported that the movie was set to begin filming in February. However, it's now said that Gambit has bumped back filming slightly, with the production now set to begin March 2018.

So, what does this mean? Odds are, things just had to get shuffled around a bit for less-than-serious reasons. If Gambit begins filming in March, that still leaves Channing Tatum and the production team plenty of time to get the movie finished in order to make the February 14, 2019, release date. So there's no need to move around your 2019 Valentine's Day plans just yet. The production is still set to take place in New Orleans, Louisiana, with stage work expected to be conducted at Big Easy Studios.

After several years of false starts, creative differences and development hell, it seems that 20th Century Fox is finally ready to begin production on its Gambit movie, with Omega Underground reporting that filming on the X-Men spinoff is expected to get underway in February and continue on through to July.

Sex and Death and the Whole Damn Thing: Gary Walkow and "Radio Mary"

  • MUBI
Mubi is hosting the exclusive global premiere of Gary Walkow's Radio Mary (2017), which will be showing November 28 - December 28, 2017.Gary Walkow’s filmmaking career has a peculiar shape. For a while he looked like a low-key American indie success story waiting for his breakthrough. His first feature The Trouble With Dick shared the Grand Prize at the 1987 Us Film Festival, which was renamed to Sundance a few years later. Notes From Underground (1995), a modern-day Dostoyevsky adaptation, premiered at Toronto and got good reviews and a modest bit of distribution; but Beat (2000), with Kiefer Sutherland and Courtney Love as Bill and Joan Burroughs, had a rocky reception at Sundance and seemed to mark the end of Indiewood’s flirtation with Walkow. After a hiatus that included an unfinished film, Walkow’s career began a second, more clandestine phase with Crashing (2007), a very low-budget comedy that eventually received DVD distribution, boosted
