  Peter Hamilton's Night's Dawn Trilogy has both pirates and mercenaries though in different storylines. William Gibson has a fondness for mercenaries in a lot of his cyber-punk novels. Iain M. Bank's novel Consider Phebas is centered on a hapless group who are both pirates and mercenaries (whatever pays, or seems to).   Why would the studio have paid for rights to the book if they didn't have specific ideas for incorporating the "Pirates" universe into it. We'll find out eventually of course, but the wait is.

It's a good book, though the prose can be a bit tough. I've been playing Space Engine[1] recently, and that has made me realize the scope of the universe. For a large scope, I suggest the work Alastair Reynolds. House of Suns is his most grand book; while Chasm City has that bounty-hunter feel. In Charles Stross's blog, he describes the never-going-to-happen third book in The Eschaton Series, including how space pirates work in that universe. Summed up by the working titles of Space Pirates of KPMG, or The Crimson Permanent Assurance In Space. .

Treasure Island, a adaptation of Stevenson's book, starring Orson Welles. Pirates of the 20th Century, a Soviet adventure film about modern piracy. The Island (), a film based on Peter Benchley's novel. The Pirate Movie (), an Australian film loosely based on The Pirates of Penzance, stars Christopher Atkins and Kristy McNichol. Big Universe is now part of Fuel Education, one of the industry’s largest K digital curriculum providers.
