It’s taken the long way through the development process, but Sony’s big-screen EverQuest adaptation just got itself a screenwriter.

Variety reports that Michael Gordon (300) has been hired to write the EverQuest script, confirming a story earlier reported by IGN Movies. Avi Arad, the former Marvel executive who recently earned production credits on Spider-Man 3 and Ghost Rider, will be a member of the EverQuest production team. From the article:

In the game, players create a character they use to explore the world of Norrath, where they interact with other players or fight off creatures while going on quests for treasure.

“EverQuest” was the most popular online role-playing game from 2000-04, before similar games such as “World of Warcraft” launched.

It’s also long been a major moneymaker for Sony, because in order to play, users must buy the game and pay a monthly fee to participate.

At its peak, title had more than 450,000 subscribers ponying up $10 a month to play.
