Kazunori Yamauchi has a very precise idea of how driving simulators should be and has digilely put it into practice in all these years with the video games of the series Grand Touring. He is a perfectionist, as evidenced by the long periods of development of his titles, for this reason he could not help but notice a mistake made by the film crew …
As the Sony Pictures social media profiles have kept to let us know, the filming of the Gran Turismo film is underway. The film, based on the true story of a Gran Turismo gamer, Jan Mardenborough, who fulfilled his dream of becoming a real driver after winning important virtual competitions, will be released in theaters in August 2023. In the role of the protagonist is Archie Madekwe, while the rest of the cast includes stars such as David Harbor, Orlando Bloom, Djimon Hounsou and Geri Halliwell. Directed by Neill Blomkamp, former author of films such as District 9 and Elysium.
Yamauchi-san, creator and producer of the Gran Turismo videogame series, could not refrain from commenting on the photo from the set. After ensuring that filming is proceeding smoothly, as a perfectionist he also pointed out a detail out of place: the Gran Turismo logo on the take is slightly wrong! A fan of the videogame series can easily notice the absence of the words “The Real Driving Simulator”, which has accompanied Gran Turismo video games since the dawn of their existence.
“The filming of the Gran Turismo movie is proceeding smoothly. The logo is slightly wrong. It will be released in August next year,” Kaz wrote on Twitter. Direct, concise and sincere.
