Sony is definitely “on fire” these days: while the Uncharted movie comes out today and other projects are on the fire, here we catch a glimpse of a certain… Gran Turismo in the cinema.

An adaptation of Gran Turismo to the cinema

PlayStation: another cult franchise soon adapted to the cinema!

You’re not dreaming: a film (or a series?) Gran Turismo is currently in the boxes of Sony. The news comes to us directly from Carter Swan, working at PlayStation Productions, who spilled the beans in her Twitter bio: this one specifies to be producer for many adaptations like The Last of Us, Uncharted, Twisted Metal, Ghost of Tsushima… and therefore Gran Turismo.

In fact, when we look at the subject, the adaptation of the Polyphony Digital saga is not new and even dates back to 2013. We then learned that the feature film would be produced by Kevin Spacethere with like co-writer Alex Tse, the man who wrote Watchmen. The creator of Gran Turismo, Kazunori Yamauchi, had even mentioned a first pitch: that of a young man champion of video games, trying to find a place in real car racing.

A success story worthy of the destiny of real Gran Turismo Sport players! Two years later, in 2015, it was rumored that the production was negotiating with Joseph Kosinski for directing, the man behind Tron: Legacy and Oblivion.

An ongoing project

However, since then, oil has leaked under the bodywork. Kevin Spacey has made a near-definitive exit from the movie business, while Sony has only recently restructured for film adaptations of its games, with the creation of PlayStation Productions in 2019. Suffice to say that the backstage of the film had to adapt, or even be completely revised.

Nevertheless, the presence of Gran Turismo in the active projects of producer Carter Swan seems to confirm that the site is still relevant: even better, it is even in progress. At what stage, however, is a question to which we have no precise answer.

Remember that the feature film Uncharted (broadcast since today even in theaters) is precisely the first film officially labeled PlayStation Productions. Yesterday, Sony also unveiled the dedicated animation that the public will see in the cinema, directly inspired by Marvel.

Suffice to say that there is something to be curious about the adaptation of Gran Turismo in the Seventh Art… What do you think is the most suitable? A movie ? A series? And to tell what?
