Magic: The Gathering movie in the works

If you play your cards right.

Long before Hearthstone was even a glint in Blizzard's eye, there was Magic: The Gathering: once just a card game, now a video game, and soon - a new report suggests - a film.


The Magic movie will be scripted by Simon Kinsberg, Hollywood Reporter writes, scribe of Jumper, Mr and Mrs Smith, and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Kinsberg has just finished prepping a script for afterlife-summoning video game Ouija, which should be a barrel of laughs.

There's no word on what the Magic film's story might be about, or who might star in it.

But 20th Century Fox, which has bought the rights to the Magic franchise for an undisclosed sum, has indicated that it wants to create a new fantasy film franchise akin to the size of Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings.
