The production of Gambit has had a rocky gestation, struggling to find a director before landing on Planet of the Apes' Rupert Wyatt, who would go on to drop out. Then, it looked as though their star Channing Tatum might drop out, too (but don't worry! He's still in!). Now THR reports that Doug Liman is in final talks to take the reins. He knows his way around an action film (also, troubled productions) having made The Bourne Identity, The Edge of Tomorrow, and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. So, let's woo Rogue and get this show on the road, eh, mon ami?
