The movie, which is set to be released in October of 2016, will be directed by Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) director Rupert Wyatt.

While it’s currently unknown what role Seydoux will play in the film written by co-creator Chris Claremont and treated by Joshua Zetumer (Robocop (2014)), it is expected that she will play the lead supporting role for Channing Tatum’s Gambit character.

Seydoux is perhaps best known for her roles in Inglourious Basterds (2009), Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (2011) and The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014), but has also gained critical success in Blue Is the Warmest Colour (2013).
