‘Stranger Things’ alum David Harbor has signed on to star in ‘Gran Turismo’ from Sony Pictures and PlayStation Productions.
A film adaptation of the professional driving simulator franchise, the project is directed by Neill Blomkamp (“District 9,” “Elysium”) from a script by Jason Hall (“American Sniper”) and Zach Baylin (“King Richard “).
Described as “the ultimate wish-fulfillment story”, the story follows a teenage Gran Turismo gamer whose gaming skills were good enough that he won a series of Nissan competitions to become a true professional racing driver.
Harbor will play a retired driver who serves as the teenager’s mentor. Asad Qizilbash, Carter Swan, Doug Belgrad and Dana Brunetti produce.
Sony is planning a theatrical release on August 11, 2023. Also today, the first poster was released for Harbour’s new dark comedy action film “Violent Night” in which he plays Santa Claus.
