Drawing from the real-life journey of Jann Mardenborough, Gran Turismo chronicles the tale of an ambitious gamer portrayed by Ashley Madekwe, whose burning desire for speed propels him from his gaming chair to the heart-pounding world of professional racing. Armed with sheer determination and a conviction that his gaming prowess can rival that of seasoned pros, Mardenborough sets out on a remarkable journey. Assisting him in honing his racing skills are Jack Salter, a former race car driver portrayed by David Harbour, and Danny Moore (played by Orlando Bloom), a Nissan marketing executive whose unwavering belief in Mardenborough’s potential becomes a driving force for success.
