Wizards of the Coast

Around 2001 a mini-series for television was considered by Wizards of the Coast, and Mark Rosewater wrote a story treatment.

Universal

In February 2008, Hasbro struck an agreement with Universal to produce at least four films derived from seven games and toys, including Magic: The Gathering. The arrangement was touted as a significant one for Universal, which had fewer well-known franchises than rival studios. By 2012, however, the project was halted in development.

Walt Disney

The 2010 Disney movie The Sorcerer’s Apprentice had a Magic tie-in. One of the characters in the movie is Drake Stone, played by Toby Kebbell, who is sponsored by Wizards of the Coast. He’s such a celebrity that in the movie he even appears on cards. Instead of just mocking up regular cards, Magic R&D was called upon to make new cards for Drake Stone’s appearance. They even made him a Planeswalker.

Fox

A Magic: The Gathering movie franchise was announced on January 14, 2014.

Twentieth Century Fox and Hasbro joined forces to make a series of films based upon Magic: The Gathering. Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past), whose Genre Films banner is based on the Fox Lot, will serve as the franchise’s creative steward and produce in close partnership with Hasbro.

Execs Kira Goldberg and Ryan Jones were instrumental in the acquisition and will shepherd the films for Fox. Daniel Persitz will oversee for Hasbro. Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner and Stephen Davis and Wizards of the Coast president Greg Leeds will act in production capacities.

First movie

Aditya Sood and Josh Feldman, Kinberg’s key execs at his Genre Films production shingle, will act as executive producers on the first movie.

Bryan Cogman, a producer, story editor and writer on the HBO drama Games of Thrones, has been been brought in to perform a rewrite based on Kinsberg’s screenplay for the first movie.

WotC has put together a team of four people to interface with the people making the movie to help ensure that it stays true to the Magic brand. Mark Rosewater and Doug Beyer are part of the team, and they are very much actively engaged with the project

Nerd Reactor interview: SDCC 2016: Talking Kaladesh and MTG movies with Mark Rosewater (2016)

EDDIE: One of the next biggest questions when it comes to Magic and seeing how so many forms of media are getting that big screen adaptation, you know from comic books, to D&D, can we foresee maybe a Magic film being made?

MARO: Well it’s funny you ask that. We have a deal with Fox Studios. Genre Films is the production company that we signed a couple years ago. I am apart of the team actively working on trying to get a Magic movie made. It’s a slow process. I can’t talk much about it because its super top secret, but as somebody involved in the process our goal is to make not an excellent Magic movie.. an excellent MOVIE that happens to be a Magic movie. I’m really happy with all of our partners. We got the best of the best, um the producer we are working with is a guy names Simon Kinberg, he does the X-Men movies, he did The Martian.. he’s awesome so I have really high hopes fort the movie.. It’s not going to happen right away, cause we are trying to do it right. I believe when we finally get it to the screen Magic players are going to be really excited!

HollywoodReporter: Fox to Bring ‘Magic: The Gathering’ to the Big Screen (Exclusive) (2014)

Magic: The Gathering is headed to the big screen.

20th Century Fox has closed a deal to acquire the screen rights to the hugely popular fantasy card game from Hasbro and will develop the property with an eye to launch a massive franchise on the scale of Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings.

The studio has enlisted Simon Kinberg, the Fox-based writer-producer who is also helping shepherd the X-Men and Fantastic Four universes at the studio, to produce the adaptation. Kinberg will also act as the franchise’s engineer — or supreme sorcerer, if you will — overseeing the development of the movie series in concert with Hasbro execs.
