As a long time reader fo the culture novels, I'm delighted to hear about this film - inner nerd worries and all. It's coming from fantastic source material. It's a new story for a film, not a remake. It has British ancestry. It's hard core nuts and bolts science fiction. Bring it on!!

Dominic Murphy looks to be a fantastic director (ok i aint seen White Lightnin' yet but it looks fantastic) and i'm glad that someone with a bit of imagination and real talent is getting a go with the Culture.
i agree with Banks though - I would love to see Consider Phlebas on the big screen - though i disagree about all the concessions!
I'd aldo love to see the Algebraist - though considering how much money would be needed for that - when really its not much of a big budget movie in plot terms makes it very very unlikely.

...I wanted them to film The Player of Games with Kevin Spacey in the lead role (Jernau Morat Gurgeh )...maybe now perhaps Viggo Mortensen...and Alan Rickman as the voice of Mawhrin-Skel would be great imo...
