Gran Turismo Movie Will Star David Harbour
David Harbour (Stranger Things, Hellboy) has been cast in director Neill Blomkamp's Gran Turismo movie.

Gran Turismo was written by Jason Hall (American Sniper) and Zach Baylin (King Richard). It's due to hit theaters on August 11, 2023.
The Blomkamp film follows Sony's successful big-screen adaptation of Uncharted, which grossed over $400 USD globally. Future PlayStation Productions projects include a Twisted Metal series at Peacock, a The Last of Us series at HBO, a God of War series at Amazon, a Horizon series at Netflix, and a Ghost of Tsushima movie directed by Chad Stahleski (John Wick).
The latest game in Sony's long-running racing franchise, Gran Turismo 7, was released earlier this year. Our review said it's "the best the series has been since its dominant PlayStation 2 era."
