article imageVideo: 'Magic — The Gathering' to get movie treatment

By Can Tran     Jan 15, 2014 in Entertainment
The popular trading card game "Magic: The Gathering," released in 1993, is set to get a live-action movie adaptation, produced by 20th Century Fox.
As reported by IGN, the card game called “Magic: The Gathering” will soon hit the big screen. A release date has not yet been announced.
Production will be spearheaded by 20th Century Fox which has acquired the film rights. Simon Kinberg, who worked on the upcoming Star Wars Rebels TV series and the upcoming movie X-Men: Days of Future Past, is being asked by the studio to join the project as a producer.
Gamespot, in its own way, says that one should not get their hopes up. They say there's a chance the film might not even be made. Should the movie get greenlit, it's unknown on what story will be followed. There's still a chance that an original story could be made.
Wired reports that Kinberg is working with Hasbro for the movie adaptation. The game focuses on magic that revolves around five different colors of mana: white, red, green, blue, and black. Each color has two ally colors and two enemy colors. In one way or another, all five colors are connected with each other. When playing, there is the simple use of arithmetic where players start out with 20 points of life. While MtG has a concrete set of rules, the appeal comes with the cards which supercede the rules while they are in play. There are many expansion sets and game play formats to this still-popular card game.
