In terms of blockbuster franchises, Paramount Pictures has Mission: Impossible, Star Trek, Transformers, Terminator, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the Cloverfield movies to its name. Some of those are more viable than others, so it makes sense that the studio is looking to add some more surefire winners to its library. One of the properties they’re betting on is a series of Ology movies, films that will be based on popular young adult “encyclopedias” that explore concepts like “Alienology” and “Spyology.”
A writers’ room has been put in place to develop scripts for potential movie adaptations, but there’s a catch: the person running the whole thing doesn’t exactly inspire a lot of confidence.
