Entertainment Weekly reports that Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt has been chosen to direct the 2016 Gambit movie. The film, starring Channing Tatum in the title role, is scheduled to be released October 7, 2016.

Gambit debuted in the X-Men movie franchise back in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, played by Taylor Kitsch, but 20th Century Fox re-cast the role with Tatum in advance of the solo movie outing. 

Tatum is both starring and producing Gambit alongside long-time producers Lauren Schuler Donner, Simon Kinberg, and Reid Carolin.
