Orlando Bloom, the star of the upcoming Gran Turismo film adaptation, has recently stepped on board, according to a script by Jason Hall and Zach Baylan. The film will direct Neill Blomkamp, who has written several films for the Gran Turismo game.
Asad Qizilbash, Carter Swan, Doug Belgrad, and Dana Brunetti will all serve as producers on the film adaptation of Gran Turismo, which already has a theatrical release date set for summer 2023.
Bloom is well-known for playing Will Turner in several installments of the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. He has also played Legolas in The Lord of the Rings trilogy Kingdom of Heaven, Elizabethtown, and The Three Musketeers. In the 2010s, Bloom starred in the Prime Video series Carnival Row, as well as the sci-fi romance film Needle in a Timestack.
Harbour is well-known for playing Hopper in Netflix's Stranger Things, as well as in Marvel's Black Widow. He will appear in several new films, including Violent Night, We Have a Ghost, Thunderbolts, and The Trashers. Madekwe is well-known for appearing in the series See, as well as in the films Heart of Stone and Saltburn.
The original Gran Turismo game was released in 1997 for PlayStation and sold over 10 million copies. The game revolutionized driving games due to its (at the time) authentic graphics and realistic gameplay. However, the figure may be higher as a result of the fact that the latest game in the series, Gran Turismo 7, was released for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 during a good review.
Gran Turismo will be released on the Sony Pictures Theater on August 11, 2023.
