Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Gambler) is reportedly dropping out as the director of the Gambit film.

The reason for this is because filming on Gambit has been pushed back from November to March, which it turns out clashes with another project he is working on. No word on what that project is has been revealed at this time.

Wyatt had the following to say:

“I was very much looking forward to working with my friend Channing and the team at Fox, but regrettably a push in the start date now conflicts with another project. I thank them for the opportunity, and I know that Gambit will make a terrific film.”

The Gambit film is scheduled for release on October 7th, 2016. However, with filming starting so late it’s possible the release date will be pushed back.

Thoughts on this report? Are you disappointed that Rupert Wyatt will no longer be directing the Gambit film?
