Fox Plans A “Magic The Gathering” Film

Bryan Cogman, a producer, story editor and writer on HBO’s “Game of Thrones”, has been set to script a potential franchise launching film based on the fantasy card game “Magic The Gathering” at 20th Century Fox and Hasbro.

First introduced in 1993, the role-playing fantasy game became the forerunner of a growing card game movement.

Involving wizards, creatures, weapons and spells that have various levels of strength, certain cards were quite rare which made them valuable commodities on the collectors market.

Simon Kinberg, Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis will produce.
