The Gambit movie is still trying hard to limp into production and now it seems that it’s got a promising director on board… but it’s not out of the woods yet.
The Bourne trilogy director Doug Liman is on still board but it’ll be a while before anything comes from it – new rewrites on the movie has pushed production – which should have been started by now – to the end of 2016. Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL writer Reid Carolin is penning the movie.
Meanwhile, while the rewrites continue, Liman will direct The Wall for Amazon Studieos: “written by Dwain Worrell, it tells of a sniper and his spotter who are pinned down behind cover by a legendary sniper.”
Liman hopes to have the movie, which is a relatively small project, wrapped in time for filming to begin on Gambit this year.
While we’re excited to see what Liman does with Gambit, we can’t help feeling that this movie may never happen.
Are we wrong? Let us know…
