I predict worthiness.

There are nine books in the series so there's lots of script potential. Banks is dead so he won't get in the way.

Full report.

As it happens, I'm right now reading Consider Phlebas (nearly finished). I found it the weakest in the already mostly poor Culture series. A disappointment as I had quite enjoyed The Algebraist.

But this of course has little to do with what the movie industry will do with it. :P
