Film studio 20th Century Fox has tapped HBO’s Game of Thrones writer, producer, and story editor Bryan Cogman to write the script for a movie based on Magic: The Gathering.

According to Deadline, the studio acquired the rights to make a Magic: The Gathering movie last January, and will have Cogman write a potential franchise movie based on the trading card game. Toy and board game company Hasbro, which bought Magic: The Gathering creator Wizards of the Coast in 1999, will produce the movie along with Fox.

Cogman isn’t one of the lead writers on Game of Thrones, but according to IMDB, he’s written for each of its four seasons, with five episodes to his name so far.

The latest Magic: The Gathering video game, Duels of the Planeswalkers 2015, will release on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, and mobile devices this summer.

Wizards of the Coast hasn’t said when or if it will announce a version of the game for PlayStation platforms. The last entry in the series, Magic: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014, was released on PlayStation 3.
