Gran Turismo is reportedly being adapted into a film or TV series by Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions. The project is said to be in very early development and the plot of the adaptation is currently being kept under wraps. The studio hopes to snag director Neil Blomkamp to helm the project. Blomkamp rose to prominence in the 2009 sci-fi action film District Nine, and went on to produce the Matt Damon-led 2013 dystopian sci-fi film Elysium and the 2015 dystopian sci-fi film Elysium.

Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions recently collaborated on the Uncharted film adaptation, which grossed over $400 million (Rs. 31.06 crore). Now, Deadline reports that the studio hopes to repeat that financial success with a feature film based on the Gran Turismo game. However, there are conflicting reports about the nature of this adaptation. A report from IGN claims that Sony is developing a Gran Turismo TV series rather than a movie. Can it be both?
Whatever the case may be, it seems like an unlikely choice for this franchise, since the Gran Turismo games don’t have any plot. These games are highly regarded for their highly detailed graphics and precise driving physics. The Gran Turismo series, created by Polyphony and Kazunori Yamauchi in 1997, has reportedly sold more than 85 million copies. The latest addition to the series, Gran Turismo 7, was released in March for PS4 and PS5.
