X-Men Gambit Movie Lands Director

Channing Tatum’s X-Men spin off Gambit has officially found a director, with Twentieth Century Fox confirming the Rupert Wyatt will direct, aiming to meet a release date of October 2016.

Wyatt was most recently responsible for delivering Rise of Planet of The Apes and seems to have the confidence of Fox to now try and expand their lucrative X-Men cinema universe. With X-Men Apocalypse already on the way,  Fox is keen to take full advantage of Gambit’s popularity. The character was a big part of the successful X-Men 90s cartoon series and has quickly become established as  fan favorite in the more recent comic book runs.
