Gran Turismo Movie to be Directed by TRON: Legacy’s Joseph Kosinski

There’s been a Gran Turismo movie in the works for a couple of years now, and whilst it may seem a little odd that a game with no perceivable story is being made into a motion picture, it looks like it’s at least getting the right people on board to make it work.

The movie, which is supposedly based on the true story of a lad who played so much Gran Turismo it prepared him well enough to race real cars, a rags-to-riches sort of story if you will.

Joseph Kosinski, the man who took the lead on the perfectly serviceable TRON: Legacy movie starring Garret Hedlund and Jeff Bridges, will be directing the Gran Turismo movie.

It’s an interesting choice of director, lets just hope he can do something a little different and not tarnish the good name of Gran Turismo.
