In an article that Deadline released earlier today about Channing Tatum parting ways with his longtime reps at UTA and Management 360, it was revealed that Tatum is still making some attempts to try and get his solo Gambit film going. Tatum has been slated to play the lead role since the early stages of the film’s journey but now there are rumors that Tatum is looking to direct.
Tatum has served as producer on several of his movies, including Magic Mike and 21 Jump Street, but this would be his first shot at directing. The film has already gone through three directors: Rupert Wyatt, Doug Liman and Gore Verbinski. There is no starting date of production at this point in time.
