Some Grand Strand natives have gone and made a movie, and now all their hard work is about to pay off with a premier on Monday, May 12, 2014, at the Grand 14 Theater in The Market Common.

"A Chess Player" is a labor of love for producer/star Chip White and executive producer Jason Smith, both from the Myrtle Beach area.

White's sister is none other than "Wheel of Fortune" staple and North Myrtle Beach native Vanna White.

The film is described as, "about what happens when the thing you love, or the thing you are passionate about, becomes all that you are.

The end product is said to be less Bobby Fisher and more like "Fight Club."

Color us intrigued! The curtain goes up at 7 p.m.
