…but not adapted from the story you might think…

SlashFilm reports (via ScreenDaily) that an Iain M. Banks Culture story is headed for the big screen. That story is the short fiction piece “A Gift from the Culture” in which a female member of the Culture, now re-gendered and living among humans as one of them, is asked to commit an act of terrorism to cover some gambling debts.

It’s a great story (see my review here) and while it may not be based on one of the more widely-known Culture books, I think this will play out well on the screen…not only because of the story itself, but because short fiction seems to be better suited towards a standalone film.

Maybe this will finally be the push I need to finally start diving into the Culture novels…
