'Gambit' Loses Director Gore Verbinski Two Months from Shoot
Connect with us

Gambit, the upcoming X-Men movie starring Channing Tatum (21 Jump Street), has lost its director. Gore Verbinski (the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy) has peacefully left the film due to scheduling conflicts, according to Deadline.

Entertainment Weekly, The Hollywood Reporter, Variety and TheWrap also back up the director’s exit.

The movie begins filming in New Orleans in March, according to a report from Omega Underground on Tuesday. 20th Century Fox has the movie scheduled for Feb. 19, 2019. UPDATE: Shortly after this news, Fox changed the release date to June 7, 2019.

Verbinski is the third director to leave the project after Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) left over creative differences in 2015 and Doug Liman (Swingers) wasn’t feeling the script in 2016. He was first announced as director in October. Tatum was first confirmed to play the superhero all the way back in May 2014.

Gambit tells the story of Remy LeBeau (Tatum) who was born with the mutant ability to charge objects with kinetic energy. He can throw down with a bo staff and charges up playing cards with energy to throw at his enemies. He was portrayed by Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights) in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Maybe Fox can ask Tim Miller (Deadpool) to direct, assuming he’s not helming the Kitty Pryde movie he’s developing as announced yesterday.

The next X-Men movie to come out is New Mutants on April 13. UPDATE: Fox delayed New Mutants to Feb. 22, 2019. The next Fox-Marvel movie is now Deadpool 2, which has also just been moved. Instead of opening June 1, Deadpool 2 now hits theaters on May 18.

Need For Speed Heat Australian release date Is November 8

The Need For Speed Heat Australian release date is November 8 2019. The game will be published by Electronic Arts and comes developed by Ghost Games. The game will be available on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

EA says “The game deepens and expands everything Need for Speed  fans love – expressive customisation, authentic urban car culture, and an immersive narrative that pulls you into the game.”

What is Need For Speed Heat about?

Need for Speed Heat sends fans to Palm City, a brand-new open world where street racers have gathered to make their names known. By day, players compete in the Speedhunters Showdown, a sanctioned competition where they earn Bank to customise and upgrade their garage of high-performance cars. At night, players risk it all to build their Rep in underground races where a rogue police task force roams the streets, ready to take racers down and swipe all their earnings. The roads, the risks, and the rides never end in this street racer where a player can roll deep with their crew, build their garage full of hot cars, and make the city their nonstop playground.

Riley Cooper, Creative Director at Ghost Games said “Our fans have been clear that they want more cars, more customisation, and more challenges, and we’re tuning up on every aspect. From your character’s style to your car’s performance and your driving style, we’re fuelling everyone’s creativity with this new game.”
