A few months ago, Wizards of the Coast (WotC) announced a new Magic: The Gathering Netflix series was in the works. Today, an independent news source has reported that actress Angelina Jolie is being considered for the role of the planeswalker, Liliana Vess.
The A-List actress not only shares a striking resemblance to the powerful necromancer but also has prior experience with films based on games, having starred in the Tomb Raider series back in the early 2000’s.
While the prospect of her filling the role of Liliana Veil is an exciting one, it is still currently unconfirmed. However, having a big name such as Jolie on board is an exciting prospect and could generate a great deal of mainstream exposure for Magic: The Gathering.
