Everquest movie in the works!

everquestSo what’s the next video game to get a movie adaptation? Looks like Sony Online Entertainment’s classic MMORPG Everquest will get the superstar treatment and take a limo to the big screen. IGN has the word that former Marvel film-honcho Avi Arad is helping to bring Everquest to the movies!

Tentative release dates are either 2009 or 2010. Looks like writer Michael Gordon (300) has been penciled in to write the initial screenplay.

As of now, plot details have been kept under wraps, but an initial detail has the film being based on a few of the seminal characters from the game.

Other than that folks, no other details were available as of writing. Arad has had a good history of bringing strong entertainment properties to the big screen, such as Spider-man and Fantastic Four, so I think he could pull off another fantasy-type movie.

Also, believe it or not, Everquest and its sequel are still prime contenders in the ongoing MMORPG war-front.
