A Gathering of Magic coming to Fox and Hasbro

6546513215654And with that  will a “Magic: The Gathering” Movie Be Magical for Fox and Hasbro?

Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast officially confirmed recent reports of a “Magic: The Gathering” movie with 20th Century Fox in a press release on Wizards.com. There won’t be just one movie, but an entire “series of films” with Simon Kinberg of “X-Men: Days of Future Past” as the franchise’s “creative steward.”

6546513215654_2And with Simon Kinberg is signed on to develop, it’s presumably as part of his first-look deal with Fox. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hasbro Studios President Stephen Davis, CEO Brian Goldner, and Wizards of the Coast CEO Greg Leeds are signed on to executive produce. Their involvement could help give the project a familiar feel to fans. Fox, for its part, apparently wants a big-screen experience reminiscent of the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings films.
An audacious goal, to be sure, and one Tim isn’t so sure is achievable, especially when viewed through the lens of history. Hasbro’s Battleship adaptation earned $303 million worldwide on a $209 million production budget. Earlier, New Line’s adaptation of Dungeons & Dragons earned a dismal $33.8 million on a $45 million production budget. Precedent doesn’t favor Magic: The Gathering’s chances to spellbind audiences.

6546513215654_3Many questions remain, such as what storyline the movies will follow. Will they be existing story arcs or brand new ones? Will they tie in with upcoming sets, be based on current planeswalkers like Jace, the Mindsculptor, or introduce new characters?

Regardless of what stories are told one thing is certain: With Wizards of the Coast’s parent company Hasbro a world leading toy maker we can expect a line of action figures and possibly many other “Magic: The Gathering” products.
