Sony working on Gran Turismo movie - Report
A film adaptation of the game series will reportedly be led by Fifty Shades of Grey directors Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti.
Racing series Gran Turismo may be heading to the big screen, according to a report by Hollywood industry publication The Wrap.
While no official announcements have been made by Sony Pictures or Sony Computer Entertainment that the project is in active development, the site currently tips Fifty Shades of Grey producers Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti to lead the project. Sony executives Elizabeth Cantillon, DeVon Franklin, and Hannah Minghella will manage the film for the studio.
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 PS3 sometime during 2013. A demo for the game was released earlier this month, while Polyphony Digital president Kazunori Yamauch previously confirmed that the studio has a PlayStation 4 version of the game "in mind for the future."
A Sony Computer Entertainment spokesperson was unavailable to confirm the report at the time of publication.
