Gran Turismo: Expected cast, plot, release date, trailer and more details
Gran Turismo is an upcoming American biographical coming-of-age sports drama film directed by Neill Blomkamp, based on a scenario by Hall and Alex Tse.
The most recent of numerous planned video game adaptations by Sony Pictures and PlayStation Studios is Gran Turismo. Another video game movie is an easy pick given the Uncharted movie, which starred Tom Holland and made $400 million at the box office. Gran Turismo, based on the eponymous video game, will join a number of PlayStation exclusives that are transitioning from consoles to live action, including significant works like the mythological epic God of War and the zombie survival game Days Gone.

Gran Turismo: Plot
Gran Turismo was designed by Sony to be a coming-of-age sports biopic. The Gran Turismo video game series doesn’t have any characters or a plot because it’s entirely about driving and racing. Sony deftly exploits the PlayStation Studios name by portraying the true story of Jann Mardenborough.
Moreover, the official logline of the film reads, “Gran Turismo is based on the unbelievable true story of a team of unlikely underdogs – a struggling working-class gamer (Archie Madekwe), a failed former racecar driver (David Harbour), and an idealistic motorsport executive (Orlando Bloom). Together, they risk it all to take on the most elite sport in the world. Gran Turismo is an inspiring, thrilling, and action-packed story that proves that nothing is impossible when you’re fueled from within.”
Gran Turismo: Release Date
Gran Turismo will be made available on August 11th, 2023 by Sony Pictures. The Last Voyage of the Demeter, a Dracula movie from Universal, will open opposite the movie in theaters.
