A Sony representative has confirmed with Joystiq that a Gran Turismo movie is in production. The representative said the film is "being made," but did not provide any further details on the production.
Hollywood news site The Wrap reported earlier this week that the Gran Turismo movie was in development with The Social Network and Fifty Shades of Grey producers Michael de Luca and Dana Brunetti attached.
Brunetti remarked on Twitter, "One that I have been after for over three years. Finally," with a link to the original report.
The film is reportedly being created to cash in on the success of fast car films, citing Universal’s The Fast and the Furious series, Dreamworks' adaptation of EA's Need for Speed, and the upcoming Hot Wheels movie based on Mattel's line of popular children's toys.
The latest game in the long-running PlayStation-exclusive franchise, Gran Turismo 6, is currently slated to ship on the PlayStation 3 sometime during 2013.
