Gran Turismo 6
Gran Turismo Movie Reportedly Revving Up

If you were to present us with unlikely games to turn into movie adaptations, we'd say that Gran Turismo is pretty high on the list. Polyphony's racing series is great and all, but doesn't really strike us as the kind of game you'd make into a film. But that's reportedly what Sony is planning to do.

Apparently, Sony has enlisted 'Fifty Shades of Grey' producers Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti to drive the Gran Turismo movie in to production, presumably because everyone's after a slice of Universal's hugely successful Fast & Furious fast car action movie pie. Still, having sold 70 million copies worldwide, it could be that the Gran Turismo franchise's popularity will pull in punters at the multiplexes.

Dreamworks is also working on an adaptation of EA's Need for Speed with Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul in the lead role, while Legendary Pictures is eyeing a movie based on the Hot Wheels toy brand. Yes, Hollywood is running out of ideas.

Meanwhile, back in video game land, Gran Turismo 6 is due to launch later in the year. You can read our hands-on preview here.

Here's how I think the "plot" will play out:

The lead character is in a race, gets taken out of the race is what later turned out to be planned.

He finds out who is responsible but to get to who ever it is. he needs to work his way back to the top.

The movie will feature Sebastian Vettel doing track times and the entire film will be about a rookie driver trying to beat them!

I don't even... If Sony want to start making movies of their IPs, like Ratchet and Clank, atleast chose ones that have a storyline.

God Of War
Last Of Us
Jak and Daxter

would have all been much better choices.

Im the asshole that keeps giving them money to do things like this. I live in Texas so my closest rqcing outlets are Drag (which is stupid in my opinion) and Nascar which im no fan of either. So my choices are video games and movies so blame me for this lol.

I'm still waiting for the Tetris movie. A fast-paced, densely-packed political thriller set in the fall of the soviet union.

I think the only way that a game can be turned into a good film is is the game producers write a screenplay themselves and submit that to a credible director/producer. For example in the film Resident Evil, if the company wasn't called umbrella I would never have made a connection between the game and the film if it wasn't for the title.

This could be an awesome movie if it is done right. Just hoping they don't try to go all fast and furious with it cause for the life of me I do not understand the fascination with those movies.
