Tobey Maguire's Bobby Fischer film adds Peter Sarsgaard, Liev Schreiber

24 September 2013 9:53 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Peter Sarsgaard and Liev Schreiber have joined the cast of the upcoming Bobby Fischer biopic.

Tobey Maguire will play the late chess genius in the film, which he has been developing for a number of years.

Pawn Sacrifice will be directed by Ed Zwick, with David Fincher said to have been in line at one stage, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It will begin filming next month, with the screenplay written by Steven Knight (Eastern Promises).

Fischer became the youngest chess Grandmaster of all time at 15. In 1972, the American beat Soviet player Boris Spassky in a World Championship match, described as a Cold War battle.

In later life, he became known for his erratic behaviour and for making anti-American and anti-semitic statements. He died aged 64 in 2008.

Schreiber will portray Spassky in the film, while Sarsgaard will play a priest who became a close friend of Fischer's.
