Movie News: GAME OF THRONES Writer Lands MAGIC THE GATHERING Adaptation

Written by Kris Heys Friday, 13 June 2014

Movie News

Further to January’s first report regarding a potential MAGIC: THE GATHERING movie in development at 20th Century Fox, comes news of a new, very apt screenwriter joining the project. Working from an existing draft by the ubiquitous Simon Kinberg (the X-MEN franchise, STAR WARS REBELS, the STAR WARS standalones, THE FANTASTIC FOUR), will be Bryan Cogman, who’s no stranger to the fantasy genre after writing, producing and story editing a little show you might have heard of called GAME OF THRONES.

There’s no further news as to what the plot of MAGIC: THE GATHERING will focus on, which, given its very nature, is open to almost limitless possibilities. Similar to Duncan Jones’ WORLD OF WARCRAFT, Hollywood has really just purchased a universe rather than a defined set of characters and narrative. Anything could happen, and being a fan, or even mildly aware, of the popular card game will definitely not be a prerequisite to enjoying the feature.

We’ll have more on this project as it continues to develop. For more information read our previous post HERE.
