After the exit of Rupert Wyatt, the production crew for the movie, “Gambit,” is looking for a quick replacement. It is rumored that Channing Tatum, who is going to star in the film, is expecting Doug Liman to take up the project, but other sources confirm that there are at least three directors out there who will be considered for the role.

According to the website, Heroic Hollywood, there are at least three directors out there who will be considered to fill in the role of a director for the feature film, “Gambit.” In a recent news from the online magazine, The Wrap, it was revealed that Channing Tatum, who is going to play Gambit in the movie, was expecting Doug Liman, who is the director of hits such as “Edge of Tommorrow” and “The Bourne Identity,” to direct the movie.

Other contenders for the position include Joe Cornish, who has directed “Attack the Block” and Shane Black, who has directed “Iron Man 3.”

Joe Cornish has recently penned the movie “Ant Man.” It didn’t do well on the box office. His directorial ventures haven’t seen much success, but he will probably see more success if he is given a strong story.

Shane Black is obviously a better bet. His directorial ventures include hits like “Iron Man 3” which made over 1.2 billion dollars at the box office. He would probably be good at editing out the script too. Let’s not forget that he co-wrote “Iron Man 3” which had a sterling script.

Most people would want to pick Shane Black for the job, but if Channing Tatum has a good rapport with Doug Liman, he would be a good fit for the role too. Who do you think will be a better fit? Sound off in the comments section below.
