We first heard some sketchy details back in July, but now the Gran Turismo movie is picking up momentum with Columbia Pictures sourcing screen writer Alex Tse to write the script.

Tse is best known for Zack Snyder’s 2009 Watchmen adaptation, as well as the Crow remake and live action Ninja Scroll adaptation.

According to Polyphony Digital CEO and Gran Turismo series producer Kazunori Yamauchi, the plot will revolve around an avid gamer who uses the skills he learn playing GT to become a professional racer. Crazy Hollywood plot right? Well, it’s actually inspired by the life of a dude called Lucas Ordoñez, who did just that!

That’s about all the information available at the moment but stay tuned to Player Attack for any new developments.
