A feature film version of the hit video game series Gran Turismo is on the way from Sony Pictures, The Wrap reports. Dana Brunetti and Mike De Luca are attached to produce.
The first Gran Turismo was released for PlayStation in 1997 and boasted 140 different sport cars and 11 different racing environments. The most successful game franchise in PlayStation history, Gran Turismo 6 is slated to hit shelves later this year.
The news comes in the wake of Universal Pictures’ Fast & Furious 6 breaking records worldwide and earning more than $700 million worldwide. DreamWorks Pictures, meanwhile, has their own racing franchise in the works, also based on a video game series. The Scott Waugh-directed Need for Speed will hit theaters March 14, 2014.
