Sony Moving Forward with Gran Turismo Movie, Hoping to Build Its Own Fast and Furious Franchise

After Universal Pictures was able to turn "Fast and Furious" into a billion dollar franchise, other studios took notice. DreamWorks immediately got to work on a "Need for Speed" movie, which is based on a popular video game. And now comes word that Sony Pictures is moving forward with a "Gran Turismo" movie, based on another popular racing video game. Sony just hired "Watchmen" writer Alex Tse to put together a script and is hoping to begin casting soon.
