Is it April first already?

Seriously, can someone confirm this with a press release? Why hasn't it been mentioned on wizards.com or anything?

I think because Hasbro is in charge of it. But when this info comes on that forum, it IS true :-P

Here is the tread:

No game movie ever turns out well... Maybe a movie about game players (King of Kong, Bobby Fischer) would be better.
I lived all over the place..

Never saw King of Kong (isn't it a documentary), Garri Kimowitsch Kasparow would be a good check movie too, but he doesn't have a that complicated story as Fischer though.

The Yugioh movies did well, so did the Pokemon cards. And those movies were basically advertisements for the card games.

Anyway I agree a movie about card players would probably be better.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but does that post also say Hasbro is planning movies based on Candy Land and Monopoly??

There's a book, but it's not very good.

That's the thing though... Disney did a good job with its own intellectual property. They have a lot to lose if they screw up their own creations.

Universal or whoever really doesn't lose anything if they make a crappy movie based on a Hasbro idea. As long as they make some $$$ they don't really care about the long term. If they redo a classic Universal Horror movie or something they would likely put more effort into it cause that's a Universal property.
