Video gamesEdit

In October 2007, Codemasters announced a licensing agreement to create video games for the Wii and Nintendo DS based on Pirateology, as well as Dragonology and Wizardology.[1] Nik Nak was to develop the Wii titles.[2]

Film adaptationEdit

On January 31, 2018, Paramount Pictures announced they were in the process of developing a film franchise centred around all 13 Ology books, by setting up a writers room currently consisting of Jeff Pinkner, Michael Chabon, Lindsey Beer, Joe Robert Cole, Nicole Perlman and Christina Hodson. The vision for the franchise is the hope that each of the writers will embrace the books by working with visual artists to create treatments which will eventually evolve into seven movie scripts with interconnected stories. Paramount also announced that Akiva Goldsman will act as overseer and producer of the franchise.[3]
