MAGIC: THE GATHERING IS GETTING A MOVIE
It was bound to happen. 20th Century Fox scooped up the rights to Hasbro's trading card game Magic: The Gathering. The studio wants to turn it into a big franchise like Lord of the Rings which sounds awesome. The bad news? They’re getting Simon Kinberg to help bring it to life. Let’s just hope it’s not as awful as another beloved franchise that he brought to life on the silver screen: Fantastic Four.
I’m actually a huge MTG fan and, yes, I even follow the lore. While I’d much rather see a Game of Thrones-esque TV series, I’ll gladly settle for a movie. The lore isn’t anything mindblowing to begin with, so there’s definitely room to improve upon the foundations for a film franchise.
