“I was very much looking forward to working with my friend Channing and the team at Fox,” says Wyatt in a press release, “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.”

One source tells The Hollywood Reporter that the shooting schedule around another of Wyatt’s projects, Mardi Gras, caused the departure. Another source claims that a changes to the script caused the film’s budget to expand, thus causing an extension to the shoot.

Currently Gambit has a UK release date on 7 October 2016. Will the alleged delays and search for a new director cause it to be pushed further back?
