Chess Movie: Knights of South Bronx

Kudos for for announcing the upcoming chess movie starring Ted Danson (Cheers fame). See

The chess community will always have Searching for Bobby Fischer as the greatest movie regarding chess, but it is nice to see other directors/producers trying to incorporate the chess theme. We'll see how it works out. (The theme sounds goods, using chess to help under-privileged children, but it might be a little too "cutesy, wutesy" for my taste).

On a other chess note, one of the Biography channels is airing an episode regarding Bobby Fischer in the next couple days. I have it TIVOed, but if I get more information, I'll be sure to share it. I am curious to see if he is generally portrayed in a positive or negative light.
