Disney to Make Movie about Kasparov's Legendary Chess Battle with Computer

Disney company has acquired the screen rights to a play about Russian chess legend Garry Kasparov’s 1997 match against the IBM computer Deep Blue, a legendary battle between the human brain and artificial intelligence.

      British playwright Matthew Charman will adapt his play about the match, “The Machine,” for Disney-based Mandeville Films and Television, the show business website reported.

      The play, which was staged in New York City this month, centers around the clash between Kasparov and the Deep Blue team led by Taiwanese-born computer scientist Feng-Hsiung Hsu.

      Garry Kasparov, who is widely considered the greatest chess player in history, defeated Deep Blue in 1996 but lost a rematch the following year, which was considered as a great turning point for the development of artificial intelligence. However, Kasparov accused Deep Blue’s programmers of intervening during the games, which was not allowed under the rules of the match. Deep Blue was subsequently dismantled despite Kasparov’s demand for a rematch.

      After leaving his professional chess career in 2005, Kasparov has become active in Russian politics as one of opposition leaders. Earlier this year he announced his intentions to leave Russia because of fears of persecution for his political activities.
