Gran Turismo movie based on true story of player turned racer

The Gran Turismo movie is about a kid who played so much Gran Turismo he became a professional race car driver. It's based off the real-life story of Spanish racer Lucas Ordonez, Destructoid reports. (Industry, PS3)

Wow this is EXACTLY what I said would be a good story for the movie in a comment when the first news about a movie came out! Word by word!! Makes a lot of sense. It's the best way to showcase the PlayStation and Gran Turismo life time. This will generate a lot of sells for Playstation and GT.

Out of all the games with great stories and gran turismo chosen to be made into a film seriously..how exciting can see this only hurting the gt franchise with a trashy cash in film.

I don't know why people disagreed, there's hundreds of other games that could've been made into movies, yet they went with the most "awkward" choice.

Think of casuals. Will they be into a movie about a gamer turned racer?

****

Why couldn't they make a GoW movie? Or Uncharted? Or Killzone? Or Gek or MedEvil (instant success, kids would love a skeleton animated film).

Why GT of all games?

What "great stories" do other games have?

And I'm not talking the storylines in the games. I'm talking the human element, the player of the games. How many games have a story like that?

And you don't even KNOW this guy's story, so you don't know what it'll be like when adapted to the big screen.

Oh, well. Overreacting ftw, right?

Well, at least it's better than the Pac-Man or Asteroids movies that were planned a couple years ago.

Or Battleship.

It could be if its written clever enough.

Take GT out of it and it's just one of those crappy/boring "This is how I make it" stories.

^ Exactly what Foxtrot said

Remember the football movie Blind Side? Now do you remember staying awake through the whole movie? Yeah, Nobody does....

that's "how I made it" movies in a nutshell.

I was thinking they will copy Fast and the Furious and just use the name to draw the fans. I am glad this is not the case.

This is actually quite brilliant.

1. It is not a forced movie because the GT academy is real.

2. It will not be a movie game devoid of any gaming. Gaming will be a big part as well as the actual racing.

3. Because there are no iconic character or story that is associated with GT. Fans will not have any problem with the adaption from game to movie as it has been the case with other story/character based games made into movies.

They really only need to show the cars which are actually the stars.

This is brilliant.
