Gran Turismo movie in development – rumour

Wednesday, 24th July 2013 02:11 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Hollywood gossip suggests Sony Pictures has tapped Fifty Shades of Grey producers Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti for a new movie based on Gran Turismo.

According to TheWrap, which doesn’t name its sources, a feature adaptation of Gran Turismo is in development.

The choice of De Luca and Brunetti is a little startling if true, but the potential movie is not; racing movies are a hot ticket right now thanks to The Fast and the Furious, the upcoming Need for Speed effort, and even a Hot Wheel movie.

Sony Pictures has allegedly nominated executives Elizabeth Cantillon, DeVon Franklin and Hannah Minghella to oversee the project.

The Gran Turismo franchise has sold over 70 million copies worldwide. Gran Turismo 6 is due on PlayStation 3 this year, and may come to PlayStation 4, too.

Thanks, AllGamesBeta.

    GT Movie? That won’t work I guess, GT is about simulation unlike NFS, so what would they do?

    Probably about a kid that becomes a race car driver through the academy.

    I could see this doing well in the box office. Just needs a story that isnt complete shit. We already know the cars will be nice

    They should just make it a documentary instead of a movie

    I hear we’ll have the trailer for 10€ while we wait 2 years for the movie. Then we’ll see some real Daihatsu Sirion CX 2WD vs Daihatsu Sirion CX 4WD action.

    They what now?
    Unless there’s an FIA partnership in this, it won’t work.

    Kinda feel they’re just jumping on the Rush bandwagon with this one, but Rush has Ron Howard, a great cast and an astounding level of authenticity,

    maybe it’s about kazunori’s life.. and his EPIC struggle to make a multi million dollar game. the evil guys will be the forza team:P

    Just kidding. I have no idea why this would be made, when they have such great IP’s lying around (uncharted, god of war).

    Sylvester Stallone as the new kid in the GT Academy program and Arnold Schwarzenegger as the old successful champ.

    When Arnold wants to retire, Stallone has one chance in the last race of the season to beat the unbeaten champ and win the championship+the hot girl.

    Shia the Beef is Stallones son who is very sick and needs daddys championshop money to get a life saving surgery.

    The quintessential Gran Turismo movie would be guys talking about racing, tyre wear, turn apex, sun-assisted passing, and inside-info on races.

    An on-circuit Initial D if you will.
