The world of Magic: the Gathering, the physical and digital deck-building card game, will eventually be coming to the big screen thanks to 20th Century Fox.

The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Fox has come to an agreement with Hasbro to produce a series of movies based on the property, in the hopes that it will become a blockbuster franchise in the vein of Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings.

Whether this is good or bad news for fans and players, only time will tell.

Thanks, Game Informer.
