The cast of the film adaptation around the PlayStation game Grand Touring expands to welcome some big names.
We announced some time ago the start of a film Grand Touring based on the PlayStation game series of the same name. The website Deadline recently revealed that Orlando Bloom (The Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean…) joined the cast, already including David Harbor (Stranger Things). As a reminder, the production of the film was entrusted to Neil Blomkamp (District 9) and is scheduled for theatrical release on August 11, 2023.
The cast within the cast
Regarding the plot of this feature film, the main lines would be based on a true story: that of a teenager Grand Touring whose talent would have allowed him to win a series of Nissan competitions to become a true professional racing driver.
The film would therefore be inspired by the experience of one of the many participants in the GT Academy (organized and sponsored by Nissan between 2008 and 2016), whose aim was to identify drivers capable of competing in real competitions with official sponsors.
Orlando rises from the cast
And given Orlando Bloom’s little workout video below from this summer, there’s no doubt he’ll be on point for the movie. The actor also specifies having broken his back at the age of 19 and having thwarted all the predictions of his doctors who claimed that he would never walk again.
