David Fincher to Direct Bobby Fischer Biopic Pawn Sacrifice 2010-03-15 12:24:17

David Fincher Gears Up to Make a Sacrifice

David Fincher is currently putting the final touches on The Social Network, but the director of Fight Club and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button has set his sights on his next project. Fincher is slated to direct Pawn Sacrifice, a biopic on the life of chess prodigy Bobby Fischer. Fincher has a penchant to tell darker stories (hello, Seven), so I can see him getting into the nitty gritty of Fischer's life, and not just glamorizing his talent.

Tobey Maguire will produce, and apparently a ton of other big names have already expressed interest in the project. No surprises here, since biopics are still all the rage in Hollywood these days — with Fincher's involvement, I can practically hear the award nominations already.
