Since Pawn Sacrifice was first announced a couple of years ago, it's gone through various changes.
David Fincher was originally lined up to direct with Jake Gyllenhaal as Bobby Fischer. After a number of changes between studios, it's finally come together with Tobey Maguire as the chess genius and The Last Samurai's Ed Zwick as director.
Following the early career of Bobby Fischer and his infamous battle with Soviet player Boris Spassky, it also takes a look at his raging mental issues and his unhinged personality behind the scenes.
Maguire's been off the boil for some time, so it's great to see him back on our screens and doing work. Likewise, Zwick's a competent director and the script by Peaky Blinders' showrunner Steven Knight looks like it won't hold back.
Pawn Sacrifice is due for release in late 2015, putting it firmly in and around the time for both the Golden Globes and the Oscars.
