GAMBIT In Trouble?; Casting Call & Budget Revealed

Gambit is now in jeopardy as The Wrap reveals that his deal to star in the movie is close to falling apart, and insiders tell them that director Rupert Wyatt will soon be looking for a new leading man (which means that the studio won't scrap the project altogether). Fox has even been testing young actresses to star in the movie alongside Tatum - including Spectre's Lea Seydoux - but sources claim that "something is up" with his deal. The site points out that there's always a chance that this can be resolved and that the actor may stay on as a producer, but it's currently not looking good.

In other Gambit news thanks to Fastlane who provides production details on the feature. The Rupert Wyatt-helmed solo picture begins filming on October 13th and continues through February 12th of next year for theatrical release on October 7, 2016. It will have an estimated total budget of $154.9 million and create over 431 jobs for the economy.
