Sony Pictures has announced the release date of its Gran Turismo live-action adaptations with acclaimed sci-fi director (District 9, Elysium, Chappie) Neill Blomkamp set to helm the project. 

PlayStation Productions has also revealed some of its acclaimed video game titles that’ll be making their way to live-action in 2023. Gran Turismo is currently scheduled for release on August 11, 2023. 

The film’s story will focus a teenage Gran Turismo player whose gaming skills won them a series of Nissan competitions to become a professional race car driver. The screenplay, according to Deadline has been penned by Jason Hall. 

Project gets the green light

Back in 2013, both The Social Network and Fifty Shades of Grey producers Mike de Luca and Dana Brunetti were attached to Sony’s Gran Turismo live-action adaptation. This particular project was initially set to follow the true story of how GT5 gamer Lucas Ordóñez became a real-life racing driver.

The Gran Turismo film adaptation is amongst other highly anticipated adaptations from PlayStation Productions such as the Ghost of Tsushima movie which will be directed by John Wick’s Chad Stahelski. 

For the TV series, HBO’s The Last of Us has wrapped filming but is yet to have a concrete release date but will not be coming out this year. Other acclaimed titles include Horizon Zero Dawn and God of War are also in the works at Netflix and Amazon respectively.
