A movie about a game about incredibly detailed cars that do more than make left turns!

Buckle up (or do something else dramatic and car-related): Sony will be making a movie based off their Gran Turismo racing series. The announcement came during their Gamescom 2013 press conference in Germany.

News concerning the movie, which will be produced by Dana Brunetti and Michael De Luca (Social Network, upcoming 50 Shades of Grey), was first reported by The Wrap back in July. For De Luca, this isn't his first time producing a sports film—his previous work includes 2011's Moneyball. As for Brunetti, a Gran Turismo movie is something he's been chasing "for over 3 years," per his Twitter account.
