Well, it seems that Fox and the Gambit movie project has finally locked down its’ director. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Planet Of The Apes director Rupert Wyatt has taken the job to direct Channing Tatum as the cajun mutant from New Orleans in 20th Century Fox’s Gambit.

“While the character of Gambit, a.k.a. Remy LeBeau, appeared in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine and was played by Taylor Kitsch (True Detective), this will be the comic-book fan-favorite’s first solo outing. Gambit, who eventually becomes part of the X-Men team in the comics, has the ability to charge objects with energy (his favorite being playing cards), rendering them explosive.”

Gambit opens in theatres on October 7, 2016.
