Jessica Chastain offered lead role in Molly's Game




  • Movie will be Sorkin's directorial debut

  • Chastain will play Molly Bloom, a former champion skier and cocktail waitress who ended up running high-stakes exclusive poker games that catered to celebrities

  • Don't get too excited about this happening right away because nothing is official and she also has at least 4 other movies she's officially signed on for (Blonde where she will be playing Marilyn Monroe, Xavier Dolan's movie, Plus One a buddy comedy,  Woman Walks Ahead the movie where she plays Sitting Bull's advisor)

  • Chastain is currently in Toronto filming Miss Sloane




  • Company will be called Freckle Films

  • She is partnering with Maven Films which is co-run by Trudie Styler (AKA Sting's wife)

  • They have no movies officially in production yet but they said that their goal is to focus on women led films both behind and in front of the camera

Just crossing my fingers her production company isn't just making films for white women.
