Fifty Shades of Grey Producers to Steer Gran Turismo Movie
What with the popularity of Universal’s Fast & the Furious franchise, it comes as no surprise that Sony’s putting pedal to the metal on its own car movie based on its existing Gran Turismo video game series. What might raise an eyebrow, however? The Gran Turismo movie is being steered by the duo behind the upcoming movie adaption ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’
That’s right folks, Fifty Shades of Grey producers Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti are at the wheel of the upcoming car flick, according to The Wrap. No other details have been revealed at this stage, but Gran Turismo will join Dreamworks’ upcoming Need for Speed movie, Legendary’s Hot Wheels and of course, Universal’s existing Fast & the Furious franchise in the race to be King of the ‘fast cars, fast women’ genre. Not that there are many fast women in Polyphony’s Gran Turismo; it will be interesting to see how a somewhat dry driving simulator can be translated into a thrilling action-packed car movie.
