Loryn Stone has dedicated her life to the written Word of the Nerd. Her writing has also been published on other pop culture websites such as Cracked, LoadScreen, PopLurker, and Temple of Geek. Her debut young-adult novel "My Starlight" (a contemporary love letter to fandom, friendship, anime, cosplaying, love, and loss) is out now by Affinity Rainbow Publications. When she's not writing, Loryn's other interests include collecting robots (Megazords, specifically), playing bass, and blasting metal.

The Channing Tatum Gambit standalone movie will have a “romantic or sex comedy vibe,” according to a producer.

In an interview with IGN, Simon Kinberg, producer on Gambit and director-writer on Dark Phoenix, confirmed the movie will adopt a “romantic comedy” tone due to the nature of Gambit, himself.

“When you look at Gambit,” Kinberg said, “he’s a hustler and a womanizer and we just felt like there was an attitude, a swagger to him, that lent itself to romantic comedy.”

Kinberg said the studio has taken a similar approach, allowing the film’s main character to dictate tone or genre, with Deadpool and Logan, both of which were big hits at the box office. “Deadpool was an R-rated, raunchy comedy, Logan was a western, Gambit’s gonna be a romantic comedy, and New Mutants is very decidedly a horror film.”

“You know, when I say romantic comedy, I use that term loosely, in the same term that I use the term western for Logan loosely,” Kinberg said, “It’s not like they’re gunslingers at high noon in Logan. It’s just a vibe. And I would say the vibe of Gambit has a romantic or sex comedy vibe to it. While it is also still very much a superhero movie with villains and heroes, as all these movies are.”

Kinberg also told IGN, with a potential Disney acquisition pending, Fox is continuing to work on upcoming superhero projects. “Gambit has a great script and we’re looking to start that movie early next year. Multiple Man, that script’s being worked on right now,” Kinberg said. As for X-Force, “we’re just waiting for Drew Goddard to be done with releasing his film that comes out in a few weeks, and then he’ll get started on that script to direct.”

With regard to New Mutants, Kinberg confirmed the film has gone into reshoots largely in order to make the film scarier. Referencing positive responses to the film’s trailer, Kinberg said, “audiences really embraced the notion of a superhero movie or a comic book movie that was, in its core, a horror film.”
