20th Century Fox announced this past January that it was developing a feature film adaptation of the popular game Magic: The Gathering, and now the studio has found a writer for the project—one with a bit of experience in the fantasy genre.  Deadline reports that Game of Thrones writer/producer Bryan Cogman has been tapped to pen the screenplay for Magic: The Gathering, which the studio hopes will kick off a potential franchise.  Star Wars and X-Men writer/producer Simon Kinberg is shepherding the film as the producer, with the aim of crafting a new cinematic universe (obviously).

Though showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss write nearly every episode of Game of Thrones themselves, Cogman has written at least one episode from each season, including this year’s “Oathkeeper” and “The Laws of Gods and Men”.  Plot details regarding the Magic: The Gathering movie will likely remain under wraps for some time, but Cogman seems like a fine choice to get the adaptation going.
