Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut Molly’s Game has a trailer and it’s fantastic
Are you ready for the Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut? I know I am. Molly’s Game is the upcoming project of the acclaimed screenwriter (based on true events) and in it, Jessica Chastain portrays the titular role. That of Molly Brown.
Moly Brown a beautiful, young, 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 (Idris Elba), who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe.
Sorkin wrote the screenplay based on Molly Brown’s book „Molly’s Game: From Hollywood’s Elite to Wall Street’s Billionaire Boys Club, My High-Stakes Adventure in the World of Underground Poker“ and besides Chastain and Elba we’ll be able to see Kevin Costner, Brian d’Arcy James, Chris O’Dowd, Michael Cera in the supporting roles.
Molly’s Game opens on November 22. Check out the first trailer.
