Tobey Maguire Considers Bobby Fischer Role

A passing reference in a Deadline Hollywood article notes that Steven Knight recently completed work for Columbia Pictures "on Pawn Sacrifice, a drama about Bobby Fischer's unlikely victory over Russian chess champ Boris Spassky. Tobey Maguire is producing and eyeing the Fischer role."  This may be the same project mentioned here last May (see Bobby Fischer on Film) based on Bobby Fischer Goes to War which had been optioned by Universal Pictures but later dropped.
