Magic The Gathering set to become a movie

Popular card game and now video game, Magic: The Gathering, is set to become a movie.

20th Century Fox has snapped up the rights to the film, which will be scripted by Simon Kinsberg, who was previously responsible for such gems as Jumper, Mr and Mrs Smith, and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

It seems that 20th Century Fox have big ambitions and are looking to create a new fantasy film franchise the size of Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings, so they chose Magic The Gathering. 

Good Luck with that.

What would you base a fantasy film on? How about Elder Scrolls or The Witcher?

Leave your thoughts below.

This has to be a joke right?

I originally thought Tom Cruise - Oblivion, was based on the ES game. Imagine how disappointed I was

It will probably have the same concept as Yu-Gi-Oh TV-show (it is a similar card based game). If executed correctly it should be interesting. The thing is - the idea is cool, but it is difficult to write a good script, or at least a good script that will be used in a movie

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
