Video game franchises turned into Hollywood blockbuster movies have certainly come a long way since the days of Super Mario Bros. and Double Dragon, yet each new adaptation still gives us pause as moviegoers. Even so, we're prepared to momentarily suspend our cynicism upon learning that Sony is readying a Gran Turismo big-screen treatment, following on the heels of Dreamworks' Need For Speed movie plans.

According to The Wrap, the movie is said to be proceeding under the direction of Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti, producers of Fifty Shades of Grey and The Social Network, with Sony executives Elizabeth Cantillon, DeVon Franklin and Hanna Minghella keeping a close eye on the project.

While not originating from a video game series, The Wrap notes that the Fast and The Furious series has become Universal Pictures' most bankable franchise, triggering a run on car-related movies as of late. Other auto films set to hit the theaters soon include Ron Howard's Rush and Snake and Mongoose, both based on historic motorsports battles.

No word yet on when the movie may see theaters, but it's likely that fans of the franchise will doubtlessly have their copies of Gran Turismo 6 (shown above) before the film's opening night.

Are you excited about the growing crop of car-related movies?
Yes, absolutely 1 (33.3%)
No, absolutely not 1 (33.3%)
I'm not sure 1 (33.3%)
