If you are a video game with cars in it, there is a very good chance that you will get to be a movie eventually. Cases in point: the still in-production Need for Speed movie which will probably be a lot like Fast & Furious except with Aaron Paul instead of Paul Walker, and Sony's newly announced Gran Turismo movie. Yes, the PlayStation exclusive driving simulation series has been greenlit for a film adaptation, courtesy of The Social Network and 50 Shades of Grey producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti.
The Wrap's exclusive report on the announcement gives few details on how the producers might seek to shape a plot-less driving simulation into a thing people would pay $14 to go see in a movie theater. Presumably, there will be quite a few cars driving at exceedingly fast speeds, actors you may have heard of speaking words, and some kind of story involving one of those actors who drives those cars because of important reasons. He will also probably be very handsome.
For those of you currently readying comments exclaiming this to be the stupidest idea ever, I would point you to the part in The Wrap's story where they remind us that there is also a Hot Wheels movie currently in development. So just weigh that information before chiming in.
