Sony and PlayStation are currently working together on a film translation of the popular racing games. The film should be released around August 11, 2023 and is based on a true story. It now also is confirmed that Neill Blomkamp, director of movies like District 9 and Elysium, will be directing the Gran Turismo movie.
Sony previously announced that it would be filming Gran Turismo. At first there was some confusion about whether it was going to be a series or a movie, but it now appears to be the latter.
Sony has also provided a summary of the story in the movie. It is about a young Gran Turismo player who eventually becomes a real professional racing driver. The story seems to be based on that of Jann Mardenborough, a British driver who started competing in events such as the F3 European Championship after winning the GT Academy reality show at the age of 19. The script is written by Jason Hall (American Sniper).
