20th Century Fox has closed a deal for a film adaptation of the popular card game "Magic: The Gathering".
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.
No screenwriter or director has been attached yet, but Simon Kinberg, Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis will produce.
