Gran Turismo is reportedly being adapted into a movie or TV series by Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions. This project is said to be at a very early stage of development, and the plot of the adaptation is currently under wraps. The studios are hoping to rope in director Neill Blomkamp to lead this project. The 2009 sci-fi film Elysium and the 2015 dystopian sci-fi film Chappie are also on the way.
Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions have recently collaborated on the Uncharted film adaptation that has received over $400 million (about Rs. 3,106 crore). However, there have been conflicting reports about the nature of this adaptation. According to IGN, Sony is planning a Gran Turismo TV series instead of a movie. Could it be both?
As the Gran Turismo games were made in 1997 by Polyphony and Kazunori Yamauchi, they sold over 85 million copies in total. The Gran Turismo series was first released in March for the PS4 and PS5.
