Rupert Wyatt will direct Gambit

We already know that 20th Century Fox's X-Men spin-off movie for "Gambit" has already locked on to Channing Tatum for the title role, now it is also finally getting its director, and it's going to be "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" director Rupert Wyatt. [hit the jump to continue]

Wyatt is an ideal choice for the role. His success in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" proves that he is the kind of filmmaker who can effectively deliver an action-sci-fi which can be rich with its storyline aspect as well. Wyatt also directed the 2014 remake of "The Gambler". Apart from playing the lead, Channing Tatum is also producing "Gambit" alongside Reid Carolin, Lauren Schuler Donner, and Simon Kinberg. Production is expected to get underway later this year, with a targeted October 7, 2016 official release date.

Gambit, whose real name is Remy LeBeau, is a New Orleans native and a mutant with a penchant for gambling and turning objects (like playing cards) into throw-able explosives. In the comics, he was introduced in the 90's and became a fan favorite member of the X-Men. (Speaking of which, the 80s-set X-Men: Apocalypse is also currently in production).
