rupert_wyatt_0The Wrap has reported that director Rupert Wyatt, has left the standalone Gambit film due to budget issues and delays.

Back in July, The Wrap also reported that actor Channing Tatum, who is to play Gambit, had left the project. This proved to be false as just days later, Tatum had closed the deal to play the Cajun hero.

The Wrap goes on to say that their insiders have said that the delay has pushed the filming back and conflicts with another project Wyatt has lined up.

The film was supposed to start shooting this November but has now been pushed back to early 2016.
