Sony Moving Forward with "Gran Turismo" Movie, Hoping to Build Its Own "Fast and Furious" Franchise

Posted: November 22nd, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Sony Moving Forward with "Gran Turismo" Movie, Hoping to Build Its Own "Fast and Furious" FranchiseSubmit Comment
After Universal Pictures was able to turn "Fast and Furious" into a billion dollar franchise, other studios took notice. DreamWorks immediately got to work on a "Need for Speed" movie, which is based on a popular video game. And now comes word that Sony Pictures is moving forward with a "Gran Turismo" movie, based on another popular racing video game.

Sony just hired "Watchmen" writer Alex Tse to put together a script and is hoping to begin casting soon. Michael De Luca, Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti, who teamed for "Captain Phillips," are production.

"Gran Turismo" is one of the biggest franchises on the PlayStation console, with sales in the $60 million to $70 million range. But since there are no specific storylines, Tse will have to come up with an original story that captures the feel of the game.

Oh sh*t, that's what we need EVERY f*ckin' studio doing fast car movies.

Guess the found footage fad is over...now it's "lookie see movie cars go vroom vroom" mindless action time.

I'd rather have a GTA movie.

@ BadChad.

Great idea. closest we have currently is Crank, with Statham.

Don't we already have a GT movie? Disney's Cars.

The actual storyline will focus on the GT Academy.

There fixed.

If it's anything like the game itself, the movie will be four hours of a single race that will be so boring it'll makes NASCAR seem exciting.
The only thing Gran Turismo ever had going for it was its so-called "realism".
Unfortunately, the "reality" of driving a car is that IT'S f*ckING BORING.

A Midnight Club movie would make way more sense, not Gran Turismo.

Somewhere in the world, Christopher Nolan just got a huge erection....

A movie based on the roadrash games would be a better idea an hour and half deathrace movie with motorcycles. Would still be better then need for speed.
