Sony making a Gran Turismo movie?

In one of the stranger stories we’ve seen in a while, Sony are apparently gearing up (pun intended) to make a movie of… Gran Turismo?

Mike DeLuca and Dana Brunetti, producers of mummy-porn smash Fifty Shades Of Grey, will be taking the wheel (pun intended). The announcement follows a wave of other cars-going-fast movies, from the awesome Fast & Furious series to the upcoming Need For Speed starring Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul.

That’s all well and good, but how on earth do you make a film out of Gran Turismo? It’s not about street racing, underground gangs or cops chasing down bad guys. Gran Turismo is a game about the pure joy of driving, and features absolutely nothing resembling a narrative. Hmmm. If we were cynical we might think this will be an unrelated racing movie with a name attached to add a recognizable brand.

That said, if the film turns into an action epic starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Batista and Ryan “heartthrob” Gosling, we will throw any and all amounts of money at it. You have our conditions, Sony.
