Just a short time after beginning to shoot "The Coldest Game", William Hurt broke his leg. "Luckily for Hurt, a similarly prolific actor also by the name of William was ready and willing to step into the role: Bill Pullman." --NY Daily News

Director Lukasz Kosmicki  says "(Pullman) is a versatile actor with an impressive resume, who has already brilliantly brought to life the character of Joshua Mansky."

Bill Pullman and Lotte Verbeek star in "The Coldest Game".  The thriller takes place as the Cuban Missle Crisis is unfolding.  Pullman plays Josh Mansky, a forgotten U.S. chess genius, playing the Russian champion in a chess match that takes on global signifigance with the world on the brink of nuclear annihilation. 

"The Coldest Game" was shot in Warsaw, Poland.
Synopsis

October 1962, at the peak of the Cuban Crisis. CIA-agents force Joshua Mansky, math genius, former professor at Princeton with a drinking problem and former chess prodigy out of retirement as he is the only one to replace the severely ill US-contender in a chess tournament against the Soviet champion Gavrylow in Warsaw with any chance of winning. In Warsaw, the Russians use every trick in the book to distract Mansky after he wins the first match despite being blind drunk. Then one of the agents who babysit Mansky dies right in front of him. The tournament turns out to be a cover for gathering intel from an informant, a Soviet officer with the codename Gift. Only he can confirm whether the Russians really have nuclear warheads stationed in Cuba. Gift is in Warsaw for a conference of the Warsaw pact. The only one who knew Gift personally is the dead agent.

The Americans are in danger of losing both games – the chess game and the one for world domination. They will have to start playing dirty, too.
