Game of Thrones writer and producer Bryan Cogman has been hired by 20th Century Fox to take on the script for their big screen adaptation of Magic: The Gathering. He will work alongside producer Simon Kinberg (X-Men, Fantastic Four) in developing the story.
They have such a huge fantasy world to play with, and the studio hopes to turn it into an epic franchise like The Lord of the Rings. The fantasy based card game was introduced in 1993, and it includes several races of humans and creatures that vary in strength. The players use special weapons and spells with these characters to battle each other.
I haven't played this game since high school, but I had a great time playing when I did. Hopefully they develop a great movie, and turn it into a successful franchise that fans will enjoy. Hiring Cogman on to help in the process is definitely »
