Gran Turismo Movie Gets August 2023 Release Date, See Casts, Plot And More Details

Sony is planning to release a movie based on the Gran Turismo game in theatres on August 11, 2023. In a tweet, the production company confirmed that it has begun work on the Jann Mardenborough-based movie. Stranger Things actor David Harbour plays the character, sources say.

Unlike the games, which involves racing challenges, the movie takes a different approach, exploring the life of Mardenborough. According to details available online, the lead character will mentor an upcoming driver, who is to be played by Midsommar actor Archie Madekwe.

In real life, Jann Mardenborough was a dedicated Gran Turismo player who eventually graduated from competing in gaming contests as a teenager to joining real-life leagues as a professional driver.

South African filmmaker Neill Blomkamp, who directed science fiction movies like District 9 (2009) and Elysium (2013), will helm the film.

“Neill is so cool and such a good director that it’s really been a joy to work on this movie, and this movie’s going to be… Talk about not what you expect, with him at the helm there’s a visceralness to this movie, to this video game world that is so cool. I can’t wait for you to see this movie. Yeah. Sim racing, man, who knew? Those guys are incredible,” David Harbour was quoted as saying by Collider.

The cast also features well-known names like Orlando Bloom, Darren Barnet, Djimon Hounsou, Geri Halliwell-Horner, Daniel Puig, Josha Stradowski, and Thomas Kretchman. Gadgets 360 said that the movie is part of Sony’s plans to adapt its major games into film and TV shows. The outlet mentions that the company is also working on a God of War TV series for Amazon and Horizon Zero Dawn for Netflix.

Between the casts and the technology required to pull off some of the car race stunts the movie will likely feature, we are itching to see Sony’s Gran Turismo film budget.
