Original “Pirates of the Caribbean” trilogy filmmaker Gore Verbinski is in talks to take the helm of the “X-Men” spin-off “Gambit”.
This kick-starts the stalled project which has previously had Doug Liman and Rupert Wyatt come and go as directors.
Channing Tatum stars as the card-throwing, New Orleans-based mutant who can manipulate kinetic energy and fight with a bo staff.
Tatum, Simon Kinberg, and Reid Carolin are producing. “Gambit” currently has no release date.
