Has ‘Gambit’ Gained Gore Verbinski For Director?

According to Deadline, Gore Verbinski (the man behind the first three The Pirates of the Caribbean films, and more recently A Cure for Wellness), is in negotiations with Fox Studios to helm the popular X-Man’s standalone feature.

The movie has been highly anticipated for awhile now, with the project swinging through development hell for several years. Channing Tatum (22 Jump Street, Logan Lucky) is attached to play the suave Cajun mutant, who’s known for his ability to transform insignificant objects into a deadly arsenal, using his kinetic-energy-manipulating abilities — with a particular fondness for a deck of playing cards.

Gambit has yet to be given an official release date.

Do you think Gore Verbinski is a solid choice of director by Fox? Spill your thoughts in the comments below!
