MOLLY’S GAME is an upcoming biographical drama film written and directed by Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, Steve Jobs) in his directorial debut, based upon the memoir Molly’s Game: From Hollywood's Elite to Wall Street's Billionaire Boys Club, My High-Stakes Adventure in the World of Underground Poker by Molly Bloom.

The film tells the true story of Molly Bloom (played by Jessica Chastain), an Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons. Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey (played by Idris Elba), who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe.

Premiering at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF 2017), the film also stars Kevin Costner, Chris O’Dowd, Michael Cera, Joe Keery, Rachel Skarsten, Graham Greene, and Brian d'Arcy James.
