There was a lot of scepticism from fans surrounding a reboot of the Planet of the Apes franchise back in 2011, but the series has so far exceeded expectations with Rupert Wyatt’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Matt Reeves’ follow-up, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Next up is War for

The movie had been earmarked to debut in October 2016, but that was dependent on it going before the cameras this year. However, since director Rupert Wyatt left the project, Gambit has only just recruited his replacement. Edge Of Tomorrow's Doug Liman is set to sign on the dotted line.
Chatting to Collider - days before Doug Liman's involvement was revealed - producer Simon Kinberg said that "we have a director in and I don’t know if I’m allowed to say who it is yet because his deal isn’t done, but it’s somebody we’re excited about, and somebody I adore, »
Back in January, 20th Century Fox set an October 7, 2016 release date for their X-Men spinoff Gambit, which has Channing Tatum attached to star and produce. Production was originally scheduled to start this fall, with Rupert Wyatt attached to direct, until the filmmaker backed out in September. The project is now back on the right track, with Doug Liman entering talks to direct last week. Collider spoke with producer Simon Kinberg, before the Doug Liman news broke, and he revealed that shooting won't happen until next spring, which could mean that the release may be shifted to 2017.
"We have a director in and I don't know if I'm allowed to say who it is yet because his deal isn't done, but it's somebody we're excited about, and somebody I adore, and hopefully we can make an announcement soon about that. But we've been spending a lot of time together - Channing, »
To call Remy LeBeau’s path to the silver screen meandering may be something of an understatement, but now that Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman has been instated in the film’s hot seat – filling the void left by Rupert Wyatt – Gambit is finally beginning to pick up a sense of momentum.
Keen to keep that momentum trucking along, Fox producer Simon Kinberg has been speaking to Collider about the tone and general set-up of the X-Men spinoff. When compared to Tim Miller’s Deadpool film, Kinberg noted that the Channing Tatum-fronted actioner will have “its own different flavor” along with a few hints about what we can expect from the finished feature.

When viewed against the overarching X-Men universe, the producer began by stating that Doug Liman’s mutant standalone piece will be angled as a “sexy” heist thriller.

20th Century Fox's Gambit was expected to head into production this fall, however exactly two months ago, things took an unexpected turn when Rupert Wyatt (Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes) bowed out of the project and the film was left without a director. The status of the film was left in a somewhat uncertain state for a few weeks, but some recent movement confirmed the project is still very much a go as a recent report revealed that Doug Liman (Edge Of Tomorrow), who recently wrapped the thriller Mena with Tom Cruise, was in final negotiations to jump on-board as director, which would be a major win for the seemingly ill-fated superhero film. Over the past week, Collider has been providing great updates on the X-Men film universe, revealing detail after detail from their extensive chat with producer/writer Simon Kinberg. After giving us some great stuff about X-Men: Apocalypse & Deadpool, »
Gambit: Last month, we heard Edge of Tomorrow and Bourne Identity director Doug Liman was one of the possibilities to take over the X-Men spinoff Gambit, following Rupert Wyatt's departure. Now Liman is finalizing a deal to helm the comic book movie, which stars Channing Tatum as the card-tossing titular mutant. The movie is still expected to hit theaters in less than a year, on October 7, 2016. [THR] Toy Story 4: Recent Academy Award winner Patricia Arquette is joining fellow Oscar-caliber talents Tom Hanks and Joan Cusack for the next Toy Story sequel. The Boyhood actress won't be playing a toy, however. She's reportedly voicing a "laid-back" mom described as a "hippie." Arquette has actually never done...

Back in August, when Rupert Wyatt was attached to direct Gambit, Spectre star Léa Seydoux was offered the female lead role of Belladonna Boudreaux opposite Channing Tatum's Remy LeBeau. Earlier yesterday, just hours before news broke that Doug Liman will now take over the director's chair, the French actress was asked for an update on her casting in the Fox Marvel adaptation. "Listen, no, I haven't signed for Gambit," Léa Seydoux revealed to French website AlloCiné. Obviously, Gambit was in a troubling state when this interview was conducted given Rupert Wyatt had abandoned the project in September, so the actress implied that is the reason she's yet to sign on officially. "I just can't make any official announcement, I don't have information," she added. Nonetheless, with Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman in final negotiations to helm Gambit, development on Channing Tatum's passion project can now move forward »
There's a new chapter in the story of "Gambit," the "X-Men" spinoff and Channing Tatum passion project that always threatens to not quite happen: another director! Following Rupert Wyatt's departure in September (the official story is scheduling conflicts, but, according to reports, he wanted to rewrite the film and Fox said no, so he dropped out), Doug Liman is in final talks to direct. Variety said this morning that it was a done deal, but that article has now disappeared, so we're left with The Hollywood Reporter's story that Liman is in "final negotiations." The project has gone through a few ups and downs. Though Taylor Kitsch played Gambit in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," Tatum, a big fan of the character, was announced as the new Gambit last year. Then, in January, we found out that Tatum would star in a standalone Gambit film, set to be released in October »

Coming off of what’s likely to be the best film of 2015, Cate Blanchett has now become attached to another highly-anticipated project: the next film from Boyhood and Before trilogy director Richard Linklater. According to The Wrap, the Carol actress is in talks to lead his adaptation of Maria Semple‘s novel Where’d You Go Bernadette. With a script adapted by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (The Spectacular Now, Fault in Our Stars), the story is narrated by the 15-year-old-daughter of an agoraphobic architect and mother named Bernadette Branch who goes missing prior to a family trip to Antarctica. There’s no word yet on when it might begin production, but with Annapurna Pictures re-teaming with Linklater after his upcoming Everybody Wants Some, hopefully it’s next year.

After Rupert Wyatt left the project, there were a lot of directors rumored to be in the running to direct Fox's latest Mutant adaptation, Gambit. Shane Black, F. Gary Gray, and John Cornish to be exact.
However, The Hollywood Reporter is now reporting that Doug Liman is in final negotiations to direct the Cajun Mutant.
Let's get to know a little of about Mr. Liman. You may not have heard of him but you definitely know of his work. He had a hand in every single Bourne movie starring Matt Damon and even directed The Bourne Identity. Plus, he's the man behind one of the greatest power couples in Hollywood as he was the director of Mr. & Mrs. Smith! His latest piece of directing that you'd know about was Tom Cruise's futuristic respawning movie, »

Once Rupert Wyatt vacated the director’s chair a couple of months back, it left 20th Century Fox scrambling to find a suitable replacement for its long-gestating X-Men offshoot Gambit, and today The Hollywood Reporter has revealed who will be taking the reins.
More News From The Web
Though his place at the helm is yet to be formally confirmed, Liman has struck up a financially-sound working relationship with Fox in recent times, with Mr. & Mrs. Smith and Jumper earning sizeable chunks at the box office. Moreover, the filmmaker clearly has the support of Channing Tatum – still attached to topline the feature as the card-throwing mutant, despite production setbacks – who reportedly courted Liman for the gig a mere few weeks ago. »

Last month, word surfaced that Doug Liman was on track to get the director's chair for Channing Tatum's "Gambit" after Rupert Wyatt exited the superhero movie earlier this year. But it would seem it's taken a while to get the ink dry on the contracts, but nonetheless the filmmaker has the job and has beaten some pretty touch competition to get it. THR reveals that Joe Cornish ("Attack The Block"; please make another movie soon), Shane Black ("Iron Man 3"), and, F. Gary Gray (who is making the next "Fast & Furious" movie) were all in the mix for the job. Liman still has the reputation he earned on movies like "The Bourne Identity" for being hard to manage and going over budget, but it's reported that producer Simon Kinberg (who worked with the director on "Mr. & Mrs. Smith") will “exercise a strong hand” behind the scenes to make sure everything stays on target. »

Will Gambit be able to keep it's October 2016 release date? That's the question on everyone's mind as 20th Century Fox furiously searches for a director to take over the Channing Tatum X-Men spinoff. All eyes are now on Doug Liman. Rupert Wyatt abandoned the movie about a card-throwing mutant earlier in the year, citing creative differences.
Gambit is still holding onto its October 7, 2016 release date. Barely. Things need to move fast for that to still happen. And the studio has gone through a whirlwind of directing choices, but it's been notoriously hard to find anyone who wants to attach themselves to this Cajun superhero adventure. But now, it looks like Doug Liman may be ready to accept an offer. If you're not familiar with the name, he's the man behind the sleeper hit Edge of Tomorrow starring Tom Cruise. And he recently reunited with the actor for the upcoming drug smuggling drama Mena. »

He.s had pretty much everything he needed except a director. A string of major names have turned the job down, and then the one guy who said yes had to bow out. It looks like Tatum.s cajun nightmare is nearly over however, as Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman is nearing a deal to take the director.s chair. Liman has been one of a handful of directors who have been on the short list ever since Rupert Wyatt.s departure. The Wrap is now reporting that Fox and Liman are nearing a deal. Liman has been said to have been the frontrunner and now it certainly appears to have been true. Liman certainly has the action movie pedigree that »

The production of Gambit has had a rocky gestation, struggling to find a director before landing on Planet of the Apes' Rupert Wyatt, who would go on to drop out. Then, it looked as though their star Channing Tatum might drop out, too (but don't worry! He's still in!). Now THR reports that Doug Liman is in final talks to take the reins. He knows his way around an action film (also, troubled productions) having made The Bourne Identity, The Edge of Tomorrow, and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. So, let's woo Rogue and get this show on the road, eh, mon ami? »

The development of Gambit has been something of a roller coaster. First, the film struggled for months to find a director as every A-list filmmaker turned down the job. Then, Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt took the gig, only to drop out shortly thereafter. And producer and star Channing Tatum threatened […]

With Channing Tatum playing hard ball with Fox over his contract and director Rupert Wyatt parting ways with the studio over creative differences, there have now been at least a couple of occasions where it looked like X-Men spinoff Gambit was going to end up being scrapped. However, determined to make it happen, Fox gave

Channing Tatum has been interested in making "X-Men" spinoff "Gambit" for years, but apparently, not everyone in Hollywood shares his vision. The flick had a hard time securing a director, and when it finally did, he bailed on the job. Now, it appears that a replacement has been selected.
The Hollywood Reporter writes that Doug Liman is the new top choice for the directing gig, and is currently in final negotiations to take over from the recently-departed Rupert Wyatt. Liman has plenty of experience in the action genre, helming 2014's "Edge of Tomorrow" and past hits including "The Bourne Identity" and "Mr. & Mrs. Smith."
While THR notes that those latter two films had trouble-laden shoots, both were big hits with critics and audiences alike. And according to the trade, Liman reportedly has a close relationship with "Gambit" producer Simon Kinberg, who will help steer the proceedings.
