According to The Hollywood Reporter, Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski might be close to signing on to writing and directing a Gran Turismo movie. The project has been gestating for a while, but this is the first major word on it since 2013.
It's said that Kosinski would be approaching the script anew too. Watchman scribe Alex Tse was once attached to the project, but that no longer seems to be the case. At that point, the game centered around a video game player turned driver, but whether that is the case anymore is unclear.
Honestly, I don't see how you get excited for a Gran Turismo movie. At least with the Need for Speed movie, it was drawing on an arcade-y game that sometimes tries to have a story. In a Gran Turismo movie, the cars might drive…super realistically? I don't know. I'm being overly cynical. I do believe you can make a good movie out of anything.
