Amazon to make Consider Phlebas TV Series

As above:

http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix....cle&ID=2333693

Not sure how I feel about this.consider Phlebas is probably the most space opera-esque and not a bad space to start but still, not sure how well Banks's writing will translate to screen.

Cautiously excited.

They are also doing versions of Wheel of Time, Dark Tower , Ringworld (!?!) as well.

*Very* interested in this. Phlebas was the first Banks book I read back in the mists of time.

Even if they do it well I can't see us ever getting an Excessive given how AI heavy. Player of games would be a good one possibly as well as use of weapons.

I always thought player of games or use of weapons would adapt well to the screen, pretty dubious about the others

Just noticed this; there should be a large, bold warning on this thread, I would have donned my "power ejac"-proof boxers. Has to be said though; there are many ways that this can go wrong. Space battles where the combatants aren't onscreen together? There's a little of that in The Expanse, but this would be taking it a lot further. Are the heaving masses ready for such madness? Not to mention warships with few-if any-crew, a dry wit, and extremely violent tendencies.

Getting away from those more facile aspects though, I hope we get into a proper on-screen depiction of "humans" interacting with advanced AI, and a shedload chucked at the FX budget, just to properly realise the environments involved. Vavatch Mega ship in a GSV General bay, that kind of thing.
