Gran Turismo is the latest iconic Sony game franchise to get a Hollywood adaptation, after the success of The Last of Us. The new film will cover the true story of one gamers dream to become a professional racer. In partnership with Nissan, Sony operate a competition called GT Academy.
The competition gathers the greatest Gran Turismo players in the world who compete within the game, with the opportunity to win a contract with Nissan to become a professional racing driver.
In a new clip from PlayStation David Harbour’s Jack Salter expresses the dangers of the sport. We then witness Jann Mardenborough (Archie Madekwe) in a huge accident. The Nissan GTR nearly takes off and then barrel rolls at incredible speed, watched on by a horrified Danny Moore (Orlando Bloom). A battered and bruised Mardenborough questions his skill, but is encouraged back onto the track by Salter. Watch below.
Originally scheduled for release August 11, Gran Turismo has suffered a slight delay in the US due to the actors strike, the new US release date is currently August 25. The film will continue with its August 11 date in the UK.
