Halo 5: Guardians

Halo is one of those video game franchises that is ripe for a big or small screen adaptation. Peter Jackson and Neill Blomkamp had made attempts to make the former happen. Although, it “ended up collapsing,” and as a result, the film was put on an indefinite hold. But now the game is respawning for the small screen at Showtime. According to new reports, a Halo TV show has found its showrunner and will start filming in 2019. More on the story below.

‘Gambit’ Rumor: Channing Tatum Eyes Doug Liman To Direct Title Film

SDCC 2013: Edge of Tomorrow panel: director Doug Liman rumored for Gambit

Gambit, the Channing Tatum-starring vehicle, has been through a tumultuous pre-production. Contradictory reports said that the leading star was close to dropping out of the title film to pursue other projects, but ended up closing the deal to appear as the Ragin’ Cajun. Lea Seydoux (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Spectre) would then be confirmed to play the lead female role in the film. Weeks after that casting, director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Gambler) left the film either due to scheduling conflicts or creative differences.

Whatever the case may be, it left Gambit without a director, which in turn forced the production to be pushed back almost six months. However, there appears to be a new rumor that says Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow, The Bourne Identity) may be in talks to direct the X-Men spin-off. More on the story here below.

Rupert Wyatt

Just as things were finally coming together for the Channing Tatum starring vehicle Gambit, Rupert Wyatt walked out on the film. The news broke not long after Tatum officially signed on to play the title character – after nearly walking out on it himself – with Lea Seydoux (Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Spectre) signing on to play the female lead Belladonna.

Wyatt said that he couldn’t commit to the project due to scheduling conflicts but wished the team well. That sort of answer is something you always hear when it comes to news like this. Of course it goes much deeper than that, and now it is being reported that creative differences are what drove Wyatt away from the film. More on the story below.

Gambit

The planned Gambit movie with Channing Tatum attached to star in the title role finds itself facing a bit of a speedbump.

Director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Gambler), who signed on to direct the movie back in June, has been forced to depart the movie. Why exactly Wyatt was forced to walk away from the movie appears to be due to a scheduling conflict.

Lea Seydoux Cast As Female Lead In ‘Gambit’

Lea Seydoux

Ever since Channing Tatum nearly walked away from Gambit, Lea Seydoux (Spectre, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) was among one of the frontrunners for the female lead. Tatum would eventually stay on to play the titular character after working out a new deal, but actresses would join Seydoux for the opportunity to star opposite the 21 Jump Street actor. Among those female lead shortlist names were Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, The Girl on the Train) and Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road, Neon Demon). Chemistry tests were held last week to see who would be best suited for the role of Belladonna Boudreaux aka Bella, but with Ferguson now in talks for The Girl on the Train, it would come down to either Seydoux or Lee.

Now there is confirmation that Seydoux will star in her third big budget blockbuster, by entering Fox’s Marvel Cinematic Universe. More on this story below.

Rebecca Ferguson Tops Shortlist For ‘Gambit’ Female Lead

Gambit Rebecca Ferguson

After nearly departing from the title role, Channing Tatum is officially signed on for Gambit. During Tatum’s negotiations, Lea Seydoux (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Spectre) was in talks to play the female lead, though who the character was and her connection to Gambit, was a bit unclear. But with everything squared away, and a start date looming, the testing phase for other characters can begin, and it looks like director Rupert Wyatt has narrowed down his choice for the female lead to three actresses.

A new report says that Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation star Rebecca Ferguson tops the shortlist.

More on this story and who else is on the list below.

Gambit Channing Tatum

Things weren’t looking good for the production of Gambit. It was reported that Channing Tatum may have had to drop out of the title role because he wanted to pursue other projects, namely a directorial debut. The actor had expressed interest in playing the Ragin’ Cajun back in 2013. Producer Lauren Shuler Donner then said that the actor had signed on, though we are learning that he was more attached to the project then confirmed for the role. Tatum even made a surprise appearance at the Fox panel at Comic-Con this year, leading many to believe that he was going to be Gambit.

But the news of Tatum departing from Gambit apparently has been greatly exaggerated, as it has been confirmed that the actor has officially signed a deal. It is also being reported that the deal may not have been in jeopardy as first thought.

Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum made a surprise guest appearance at the San Diego Comic-Con a few weeks back to help promote Gambit during the panels for Fox’s Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse. Unfortunately he was unable to bring any footage, for the film was scheduled to start shooting later this fall for an October 2016 release. But the studio was able to reveal the title card, which took the form of a playing card of all things. On all accounts it looked like there wasn’t any pre-production trouble.

But now a new report says that Tatum may want out of Gambit, but it’s not quite for the reasons you may think of. More on the story below.
