** Wiseau himself originally wrote the story as a play, and then a 500 page novel before he decided to make it as an independent film. The novel has never been published.

* The first ''VideoGame/XCom'' game has had two novelizations made of it: An American one with a female Commander working to build up a new military base in Switzerland (written by Dianne Duane), and a Russian one that tells the tale of a member of your first eight recruits.

* The novelization of ''TheMummy Returns'' has an added bit where showing loyalty to the Scorpion King meant ''cutting off your forehead'' and chanting "Mi Phat As". Rick O'Connell tries to mimic it as best as he can: "My Fat Ass!"

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' has an impressive number of novelizations and short stories set in its universe. The quality of writing varies but is usually decent. [[GauntsGhosts At least one series]] supposedly changed the way an entire faction was perceived by the fanbase; Games Workshop (which both makes the tabletop game and publishes the literature under its own publishing branch) knew a good thing when it saw it and adjusted accordingly.

** On a more obscure note, there exist two ([[NoExportForYou Japan-only]]) novelizations of the anime, written by the original anime director Creator/TakeshiShudo. The second volume includes a ToBeContinued note in the afterword, but it was CutShort; no third installment was released, plus Shudo died in 2010.


Added DiffLines:

* There is a three-installment novelization of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'' which expands on the main cast members' characterization while having several scenes play out differently than they did in the anime.

* ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' spawned a tie-in book calling itself a "Movie Novel" - though it isn't. It's merely a comic book that adds speech bubbles to poor-quality screencaps from the film. There were several of these in TheSeventies; ''Hair'' was another example of them.

* Each of the four ''Franchise/{{BIONICLE}}'' DirectToVideo movies have been adapted into novels, in such a way that they fit neatly into the ongoing novel series. Since they were written according to pre-finalized scripts, they were all different to various degrees from the films, and often contained deleted scenes. The book for the fourth movie in particular had a very different feel, since the writer allegedly wasn't aware that the movie would take a more "cartoony" approach.

* ''HomeAndAway'' has been novelized.
* ''TheTenthKingdom'' was co-written, under the pseudonym Kathryn Wesley, by the husband and wife team of Kristine Kathryn Rusch and Dean Wesley Smith. Seeing as it was based on an earlier version of the screenplay, it suffered from invalidated script syndrome. The end result contains some things which would have made for intriguing scenes in the movie (such as the Queen telling the Dog Prince a "bedtime story" about how she came to end up in prison, the literal burying of the magic axe, Virginia's RecurringDreams about Wolf, or an interesting variation on the Swamp Witch's cottage scene with Clay Face rather than Acorn). Other sections have some surprisingly deep explorations of character and motivation, such as the longer conversations between Virginia and the Huntsman, Virginia and the Queen, Virginia and Snow White, or Virginia and Tony about her mother; or where they hear in Little Lamb Village about the Trolls ravaging the kingdom and Tony, who accidentally golded Wendell, feels responsible. And some [[AllThereInTheManual explanations]] for otherwise headscratching moments are included, such as the old woman in the forest and the Cupid girl in Kissing Town both being Snow White in disguise. There's also lots of fun [[DeadpanSnarker snarking]] in the characters' thoughts, especially Wolf's and Tony's.
