Joseph Kosinski To Helm “Gran Turismo”

“Oblivion” and “Tron Legacy” helmer Joseph Kosinski is in talks to direct the film adaptation of the popular racing video game series “Gran Turismo” at Sony Pictures.

Alex Tse penned the original draft, but it is unknown if Kosinski will use it or more likely get a whole new one done. Story details are unknown at this time.

Over 70 million copies of the various games in Polyphony Studios’ series have been sold worldwide since the series began in 1997. It marks the highest selling video game franchise under the PlayStation brand.

Michael De Luca, Dana Brunetti, Josh Bratman, DeVon Franklin and Elizabeth Cantillon are producing.
