Gran Turismo coming to theatres on August 11th, 2023

According to a fresh rumour from Deadline, Sony’s planned Gran Turismo film will be released in theatres on August 11th, 2023, which is earlier than we might have imagined. The film will be directed by Neill Blomkamp and will be based on a true story.

“Based on a true story, the film is the ultimate wish-fulfilment tale of a teenage Gran Turismo player whose gaming skills won a series of Nissan competitions to become an actual professional race car driver.”

That means the story will most likely be based on someone from the GT Academy, which existed from 2008 to 2016 and allowed Gran Turismo pros to fight for a spot on a real-life racing team sponsored by Nissan. The casting information in Deadline’s story is missing.


The film is only one of numerous PlayStation game adaptations under development for the big and small screen. The first hints of the Gran Turismo film surfaced last month, coupled with the announcement that a Horizon Zero Dawn Netflix series was in the works. In the Twisted Metal event coming to Peacock, Will Arnett will play Sweet Tooth.

The Last of Us, an HBO series, concluded filming last week, but the drama will not be released this year. Last year, Sony announced a Ghost of Tsushima film and is working with Amazon on a God of War TV show.

While that may seem like a lot of video game adaptations, some previous films based on gaming franchises have been huge hits, suggesting Sony’s strategy will pay off. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 by Sega and Paramount outperformed the original at the cinema office, while Sony’s Uncharted film, despite mediocre reviews, was a box office hit.
