Director Rupert Wyatt Quits ‘Gambit’

Director Rupert Wyatt has quit the Channing Tatum X-Men spinoff Gambit being made by Fox, according to sources at The Hollywood Reporter.

“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,” said Wyatt.

Most recently Lea Seydoux was cast as Belladonna Boudreaux in the film. Gambit is supposed to start filming in early 2016.
