If you haven't heard, Wizards of the Coast/Hasbro has decided to make a feature film about Magic. And if you haven't heard, Game of Thrones is an awesome TV show.

Today, the two meet.

Bryan Cogman, a producer and writer on the acclaimed HBO series, has signed on to write the script for the upcoming Magic movie. I don't know what we can expect, but if it's anywhere even near GoT level, we're in for a treat.

Watch parties at my house every week for this.

There's still no official timetable set for the release of the Magic film, but the process seems to be moving along nicely. At this point, assuming no major holdups, extremely rough estimates say we could be looking at a film in 2016. I know that feels like a long time to wait, but I have faith the wait will be worth it.

And adding any Game of Thrones flavor can only help that.

  1. Liliana clutched her cloak to her chest to cover herself. “He saw us.” she said to Gideon.

    “How old are you, boy?” Gideon asked the goblin, holding his collar to steady him on the window ledge.

    “10” replied Squee.
    Gideon shrugged and looked at Liliana.

    “He saw us.” she repeated.

    “The things I do for love” Gideon remarked, shoving squeeze out the window.
