Bobby Fischer Goes to War

Kevin Macdonald will direct "Bobby Fischer Goes to War", a movie that should focus only on the match against Boris Spassky in Reykjavik 1972. Fischer to become the new american heroe ?! .. could be funny (or not)

Robert J Fischer Goes to War.

Lets cast this movie. Nicholas Cage or Woody Harleson as R J Fischer. Colin Firth could be Boris Spassky. I think Stephen Fry could get by as Lothar Schmid the match arbiter. Max Euwe, the then president of FIDE .... Well can anyone else cast the movie for me.

Bobby Fischer Goes to War

Haha, nice idea... Nicolas Cage could be an interesting Fischer. Elijah Wood may be surprising as Fischer IMO. John Travolta as Boris Spassky ? :) (no, Stallone-Rambo was a bit too much but it quite looks like David vs. Goliath already)

Good Cinema ...

What about Arnold Schwarzenegger as Fischer and Sylvester Stallone as Spassky? Woody Allen whold be a good Max Euwe and Sandra Bull-Dog as Nona Gaprindasvili
