Jessica Chastain è in trattative per interpretare Molly Bloom, studentessa e atleta, ma soprattutto giocatrice di poker, tanto da organizzare tavoli con le star di Hollywood e la mafia russa.
Molly’s Game segnerà il debutto alla regia del leggendario sceneggiatore Aaron Sorkin (Codice d’onore, La guerra di Charlie Wilson, Moneyball, The Social Network, Steve Jobs, The West Wing e The Newsroom)
Molly Bloom reveals how she built one of the most exclusive, high-stakes underground poker games in the world—an insider’s story of excess and danger, glamour and greed.
In the late 2000s, Molly Bloom, a twentysomething petite brunette from Loveland Colorado, ran the highest stakes, most exclusive poker game Hollywood had ever seen—she was its mistress, its lion tamer, its agent, and its oxygen. Everyone wanted in, few were invited to play.
Hundreds of millions of dollars were won and lost at her table. Molly’s game became the game for those in the know—celebrities, business moguls, and millionaires. Molly staged her games in palatial suites with beautiful views and exquisite amenities. She flew privately, dined at exclusive restaurants, hobnobbed with the heads of Hollywood studios, was courted by handsome leading men, and was privy to the world’s most delicious gossip, until it all came crashing down around her.
Molly’s Game is a behind the scenes look at Molly’s game, the life she created, the life she lost, and what she learned in the process.
La Chastain sta cercando incastrare il film tra i suoi impegni già presi, perchè la parte è di quelle che non si dimenticano e un copione di Sorkin è sempre una sifda per ogni attore.
Produrrà la Sony Pictures.
