Since it was leaked last week, news of the Gran Turismo feature film has spread far and wide among the video game, automotive, and entertainment industries, but the project hadn’t yet been publicly confirmed by anyone associated with Sony.
That changed last Thursday, when a Sony representative from the UK confirmed to AOL’s gaming website, Joystiq, that the movie is “being made”.
The movie, however, is likely quite a ways off. The two producers involved, Mike De Luca and David Brunetti, have only just started work on their current high-profile project, the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, which has just received a confirmed release date of August 1, 2014.
Assuming production on Fifty Shades takes up most of their time through that date, it would be unlikely to see Gran Turismo hit the big screen until 2015 – a potential date which could tie in nicely with the series’ debut on the PlayStation 4 console.
