Edge of Tomorrow's Doug Liman being wooed to direct Gambit

Gambit Doug Liman Channing Tatum Banner

Production on GAMBIT starring Channing Tatum as the card-flinging mutant was expected to start soon, however that was before Rupert Wyatt left the film last month. The project still hasn't found a director yet, but Deadline is reporting that "recent Hollywood chatter has Doug Liman on an inside track to direct." Although the site goes on to say "there’s also talk that Liman and Tom Cruise might do a sequel to Edge of Tomorrow," The Wrap's Jeff Sneider is claiming that Tatum has been courting Liman to helm the comic book movie.

This doesn't mean that Liman will definitely take the job though, and there's no word on if he's even interested in directing the project. But I'd be more than ok with him taking over for Wyatt, and if he does, hopefully he won't have any creative differences with Fox. Would you rather see the filmmaker behind the camera for GAMBIT or an EDGE OF TOMORROW sequel?

GAMBIT has been set to open on October 7, 2016.

I say go for it. He's a strong enough director when it comes to this kind of movie.

Edge of Tomorrow is great, but the reason it didn't bank at the box office is because of Liman's "workshoppy" style. Not good for a big budget action movie. That's why Marvel extensively storyboard and use animatics before shooting (also why they like TV directors). If they can rein him in, then fine.

Edge of Tomorrow's Doug Liman? Why not just Doug Liman? He's not exactly a newcomer.

I would be more than fine if he were to sign on. Would give me a lot more confidence in the final product.
