Swift 3: Unrecognized selector sent to instance Xcode 8

I have programmatically created an

and added
to it:

class ViewController: UIViewController{
var preludeView: UIView!

override func viewDidLoad() {


let panGestureRecognizer = UIPanGestureRecognizer(target: self, action: Selector(("handleTap:")))

func handleTap(recognizer: UIPanGestureRecognizer) {

func initViews() {

func createConstrants() {

But when I am touching the view Xcode is throwing an error:

2016-07-13 09:24:29.918 Draft_Hypa_02[661:83024]
-[Draft_Hypa_02.ViewController handleTap:]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x17d94a10 2016-07-13 09:24:29.921

However, if I remove argument in the
function and remove the colon in the
, everything works fine!

Already spent a day to try to fix this issue and would be very appreciate for your help!
