Sony's Gran Turismo is getting its own movie. Here's what we know about it so far.

There's been a surprising uptick in video game-inspired movie and television adaptations in recent times, primarily from Sony's catalog of PlayStation titles. From the likes of Uncharted hitting the big screen, and The Last of Us dominating viewership on HBO, it's no surprise that more projects are in the works.

Both God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn are set to get TV adaptations, but one title is set to get a film release later this year — Gran Turismo. While a racing film will need to contend with the likes of Fast and Furious, this upcoming movie is set to be based on a true story of a young Gran Turismo player who aspired to be a real-life racing driver. The film has been in development for some time and, fortunately, this means there's a number of details available ahead of its release.

Which Streaming Service Will the Gran Turismo Movie be On? How to Watch

The Gran Turismo movie is still in development and likely targeting a theatrical release. It's currently too early to say which streaming service the film will arrive on first, and whether that will be to buy/rent or included as part of a subscription.

The film is also set to be distributed by Sony's own distribution company, Sony Pictures Releasing.
