    That quote has changed since I looked at it first thing this morning - maybe the journalist got a clarification from somewhere.
    It now says: "Downey: We have a company with Dominic, Mass Productions. We are developing a film with him for Channel 4 based on Iain M Banks novels about his fictional futuristic universe where the dominant force is The Culture, called A Gift from the Culture, which is at script development stage."

    Hmm, they were meant to be shooting this thing in 2010, now they're developing the script, Next thing you'll know Frozen Gold will be doing the soundtrack...

    "... based on Iain M Banks novels about his fictional futuristic universe where the dominant force is The Culture." "Dominant force", maybe we better hope this doesn't get made. I'm beginning to suspect they want to make it into Star Trek with Minds instead of Picards.

    Was there ever any follow-up on this?

    I've just had a little poke around on here - http://fame.uk.com - and it's mentioned a few times (see the pages listed below). But this info looks a bit out of date.

    http://fame.uk.com/team/Mike-Downey/
    http://fame.uk.com/team/Sam-Taylor/
    http://fame.uk.com/About_us/FAME_Company_Profile/

    Extract from the company profile page:

    "2011 saw the completion of Gareth Maxwell Roberts’ 3D Film Noir The Mortician and Tim Pritchard’s feature documentary Street Kids United. At present, F&ME are developing Cassy and Jude and A Gift From The Culture by Iain M. Banks with Dominic Murphy, as well as Julien Temple’s next project - the documentary feature Children of the Revolution about the musical and political history of Rio. F&ME are currently in pre-production for Epic written by Pawel Pawlikowski and Ben Hopkins, set to shoot in autumn of 2012."

    Oh dear - I thought I'd revisit this and now I find that all references to the development of A Gift From The Culture seem to have disappeared :-(
