Channing Tatum's movie 'Gambit' set for February 2019 release

The Channing Tatum-starring X-Men spinoff will hit theaters on February 14th, 2019, the studio announced on Thursday.

Channing Tatum's Gambit has finally been dealt a good hand.

The script for the motion picture has been penned by Josh Zetumer, following previous reports of multiple script re-writes, and Tatum, Reid Carolin, Simon Kinberg, and Lauren Shuler Donner will co-produce the project.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Fox film will drop February 14, 2019, hoping that the Valentine's Day holiday will be as kind to Gambit as it was to the overnight blockbuster Deadpool in 2016.

Gambit doesn't have a release date. The character of Gambit was created in 1990 by Chris Claremont and Jim Lee and grew to prominence due to the 1992 cartoon series, where his fraught romance with Rogue was a major plot point. The film has been in development for some time, with Verbinski coming on board last week following departures of filmmakers Rupert Wyatt in October 2015 and Doug Liman in August 2016.

Tatum has always been attached to play the New Orleans-based superhero, who was portrayed by Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights) in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

The Gambit release date comes as Fox has been expanding its X-Men properties on the big screen, with 2018 seeing the release of New Mutants (set to open April 13), Deadpool 2 (June 1) and X-Men: Dark Phoenix (Nov. 2).
