Heath Ledger's Queen's Gambit


Heath Ledger was reportedly in talks for his directorial debut in a chess-themed film to be entitled, The Queen's Gambit - "an adaptation of the novel about an orphan who becomes a chess prodigy".

Now I don’t know about Heath’s chess skills, but all we know (thanks to Haydn Barber, current CAWA president and himself a multiple champion of Western Australia) is that the actor did play junior chess back in the late 1980’s to early 90’s in the U10 and U12 divisions.
