Gran Turismo Movie Begins Filming, First Image Released

The new Gran Turismo film has started filming and an image of the production has been released. PlayStation has many cinematic adaptations of its biggest franchises planned. While some of the most likely candidates such as: not mapped and The last of us got priority, others like it Gran Turismo have also surfaced, much to everyone’s surprise. The racing series is not remotely story-driven and is more of a technical showcase. It pushes the graphics fidelity of the PlayStation hardware to its limits and it’s all about creating a highly realistic racing simulator. To even suggest the idea of ​​a story in a Gran Turismo game seems almost silly.

However, Sony has District 9 director Neill Blomkamp at the helm of a Gran Turismo movie and it sounds like it really has a lot of potential. The movie is now being filmed after assembling a star-studded cast that includes actors such as Orlando Bloom, Weird stuff star David Harbour, and even a member of the Spice Girls. The first image of the film has been released and while you can’t see much, you can see a handful of cars on a starting line with a clapper board in front of it. The movie has reportedly been in the works for a while, but this is the first image and its official confirmation. Sony has also confirmed that the film is based on the true story of Gran Turismo player Jann Mardenborough who won a PlayStation competition and became a professional racing driver. It should make for a rather interesting story.

At this point, it’s unclear how dramatized the story will be and whether there will be significant creative freedoms. The fact that a Gran Turismo film is incredibly interesting, especially when you look at the talent it supports. While it could be a disaster, all the names involved in the production certainly inspire a lot of confidence and should at least lead to something exciting.

Gran Turismo will hit theaters on August 11, 2023. Are you excited about the movie? Let me know in the comments or give me a call Twitter @Cade_Under.
