Director of Oblivion and Tron, Joseph Kosinski is deep in negotiations to take the lead role in directing the next big racer movie - Gran Turismo!

Revealed back in 2013, the [Gran Turismo](movie:1056761) movie was said to revolve around the premise of a gamer turned racing driver. Specifically aiming to highlight the particular story of a Lucas Ordonez, a Spanish student who went on to win the first GT Academy competition. A scheme run by Sony Playstation to take gamers from the sofa to the track.

However, new sources have suggested that with Kosinski behind the wheel, there is surely going to be some changes in store. The old script although original, doesn't have the edge to take poll position in the box office.

"Kosinski has been itching for a racing movie for a while. The director spent a couple of years developing a movie based on Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans, written by A. J. Baime, for Fox. Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise were circling, but ultimately the project spun off the track and Kosinski moved on." Hollywoodreporter
