While studios have largely looked at video games as a potential hotbed for screen adaptations, Netflix is looking to one of the world’s most popular card games for its next hopeful hit.

Netflix officially announced Monday it would be working with Wizards of the Coast to brings its popular trading card game, “Magic: The Gathering,” to the service. On top of that, “Avengers: Endgame” directors Joe and Anthony Russo would be serving as executive producers on the series.

“We have been huge fans and players of Magic: The Gathering for as long as it has been around, so being able to help bring these stories to life through animation is a true passion project for us,” the Russo Brothers said as part of Netflix’s official announcement.

The show will follow the game’s Planeswalkers as they “contend with stakes larger than any one world can hold,” as the announcement describes. Netflix also revealed the game will be adapted as an anime, similar to its “Castlevania” series.

“Working with Joe and Anthony, Wizards of the Coast, and Netflix on such a universally cherished brand is a real highlight for our studio,” Octopie CEO Isaac Krauss said. “Our goal is to not only tell a compelling story leveraging Magic: The Gathering’s incredible body of work, but to also push the medium and perception of storytelling through animation. This series will cross the genres of suspenseful thriller, horror, and drama with deeply developed characters the likes of which are not often seen in animation.”

Octopie will handle primary production for the show.

And the Russo brothers aren’t the only talent being brought on-board for the series. Jose Molina of “The Tick” and “Agent Carter”, along with Henry Gilroy of “Star Wars: Rebels” and “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” have signed on to serve as lead writers for the show. “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” artist Yoriaki Mochizuki will also be serving as supervising director and co-executive producer.
