Re: Fred Pohl's "Gateway" to get a TV show?

I'd like an adaptation of Alastair Reynold's Revelation Space series (also very dark -- we're all doooomed) but I'll take Gateway instead. I'm interested to see just how much tweaking the show runners actually do. Will they create an active antagonist other than a faceless corporation or state? Will they make Robinette into a she, more heroic, less flawed, or play up his flawed nature? Will they gloss over the negative aspects of rampant capitalism? Will the Heechee and the Foe show up and when?
