Gambit Movie Loses Rupert Wyatt; Channing Tatum's Abs to Direct Instead

It didn't take the studio long to find a replacement.

Fox's Gambit movie starring Channing Tatum hit a minor setback Wednesday night, only to quickly rebound, as director Rupert Wyatt announced that he would not direct the project due to a scheduling conflict. "I was very much looking forward to working with my friend Channing and the team at Fox," Wyatt said in a statement, "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 departure sent Fox executives scrambling to find a replacement, but all they had to do was look within. Within star Channing Tatum's shirt, that is. Just hours after the news of Wyatt leaving, sources are reporting that Fox is already in negotiations with Channing Tatum's abs to sit in the director's chair. According to trusted sources close to the production, Tatum's abs were the logical choice for the role, since Tatum, who is also the executive producer for the film, prefers to work with someone he's familiar with.

"Channing is more comfortable being directed by someone he knows, and he's had an excellent working relationship with his beautiful abs for decades," our source told us.

We here at The Outhouse also have a good working relationship with Tatum's abs, working relationship here defined as mildly unhealthy obsession. We congratulate Tatum's abs on getting the job, and look forward to a Gambit movie that is as plentiful with steamy shower scenes as it is with poorly considered cajun accents.

We'll keep you posted.
