    I read a review this morning from a friend in India.

    Though I like the artistic expression of the director concerning the Nerdyness or the nerds there is neither Artificial Intelligence nor Chess in this movie.

    Hollywood to Bring Iconic US-Soviet Chess Standoff to Silver Screen

    WASHINGTON, September 26 (RIA Novosti)

    A movie dramatizing the iconic 1972 showdown between US chess prodigy
    Bobby Fischer and Soviet grandmaster Boris Spassky will start filming next
    month, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

    “Spider-Man” actor Tobey Maguire, who will star as Fischer, has been
    developing the film for years, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
    The movie, to be called “Pawn Sacrifice,” will be directed by Ed Zwick,
    whose previous screen credits include the 2003 Tom Cruise epic
    “The Last Samurai,” according to IMDB.

    American actor Liev Schreiber is in negotiations to star as Spassky,
    while Peter Sarsgaard is in talks to play Fischer’s priest confidant.
    The movie will start shooting in Montreal in October.

    Tobey Maguire could probably pull it off.
    I do hope there's some hardcore pawn action in it!

    The Grass Arena is probably the best dramatization of chess on TV I've seen. Although it is more about John Healy's addiction to alcohol than his chess. In my opinion it's better than the biography it's based on.
