Fox Developing A MAGIC: THE GATHERING Movie

Simon Kinberg will produce and spearhead development for a Magic: The Gathering film franchise for 20th Century Fox. The film studio is said to be looking at WB's Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings franchises for inspiration.

Kinberg is in great demand these days. He's shepherding a shared comic book movie universe for Fox, re-writing the Fantastic Four script for Josh Trank, expanding the Star Wars universe with J.J. Abrams and now developing a film franchise based on Hasbro card game, Magic: The Gathering. President of Hasbro Studios Stephen Davis, CEO Brian Goldner and Wizards of the Coast CEO Greg Leeds will serve as executive producers. Aditya Sood and Josh Feldman, executives at Kinberg's Genre Films will also executive produce. Fox is said to be looking to match the breadth and scope of Warner Bros.' Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings sagas for their own sword and sorcery franchise.
