David Harbour is leading the cast of Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions’ Gran Turismo film adaptation.
According to reports, the Stranger Things star will play the role of a retired driver who teaches a teenage Gran Turismo player to become a real-life professional racecar driver as his gaming skills previously won him a series of Nissan competitions. Neill Blomkamp of District 9 and Elysium fame will helm the film, which is based on a true story, while Jason Hall and Zach Baylin will pen the script.
Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan of PlayStation Productions, along with Doug Belgrad and Dana Brunetti, are producing, while both Hall and Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi are serving as executive producers. “As one of PlayStation’s longest standing and most beloved franchises, it’s great to be partnering with Columbia Pictures again to bring Gran Turismo to life in an exciting way,” Qizilbash said in a statement. “We can’t wait for audiences to see Neill’s vision of this inspiring true story of gamer turned professional race car driver.”
Stay tuned for an official trailer. Gran Turismo premieres August 11, 2023.
