New Chess Movie Soon with Tobey Maguire as Bobby Fischer

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2012

Hi everyone,
Bobby Fischer
There's some interesting chess news when it comes to chess movies. We are soon going to have another movie on none other than World Chess Champion Bobby Fischer. Tobey Maguire is going to play Fischer. He would be producing the movie. 

According to IndiWire, "Ed Zwick has come on board to direct 'Pawn Sacrifice'. First announced in the spring of 2010, with David Fincher loosely attached to direct (it was later revealed he took a meeting, and offered some advice, but nothing more), the film was penned by Steven Knight ("Eastern Promises") and tells the story of American chess player Bobby Fischer and his 1972 victory over Russian chess champ Boris Spassky...".
