Fox Is Going To Make A Magic: The Gathering Feature Film

Fourteen year old me is super excited about a Magic: The Gathering movie. Twenty-six year old me? Eh. Not as much. Due to the current deluge of IP themed movie properties it’s hard to really get excited about any of them. They all just blend together. Sure, Magic has a rich and complex story fabric from which many interesting stories could be pulled, but the chances of something more along the lines of Battleship happening are significantly higher.

Fox’s go-to scribe Simon Kinberg is currently attached to the project. Kinberg is also helping to craft Fox’s comic book universe which features the X-men and the Fantastic Four. Needless to say Kinberg is going to be one busy dude in the coming year.

Little else is known about the proposed Magic movie, other than Fox wants it to be a franchise similar to Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings.

We’ll see if that happens.
