The last video game that anybody would have expected to get a movie is getting one. The Playstation racing game Gran Turismo is getting the movie treatment. In an interview with Destructoid, Polyphony Digital’s own Kazunori Yamauchi clarifies details regarding the movie.
The Gran Turismo movie will follow the life story of Lucas Ordonez, a professional racer who made his start by playing the Gran Turismo video games. The movie has a relatable story in the fact that it starts off with Ordonez’s mother being concerned that he is spending too much time playing video games. Yamauchi also clarified that the movie will revolve around themes of growth and maturity.
The movie doesn’t have a release date at the moment.
