The cast of Aaron Sorkin's directorial debut Molly's Game continues to be very impressive, which shouldn't come as a surprise. He's always had a lot of talent to work with as a screenwriter, so why would his first time at the helm be different?
Chris O'Dowd, Jeremy Strong, Bill Camp and Graham Greene are the latest to deal themselves in to the poker drama. They'll join Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, Brian d’Arcy James, J.C. McKenzie and Samantha Isler in the adaptation of Molly Bloom's memoir about how she went from Olympic-level athlete to running Hollywood's most high-stakes poker game until the FBI barged in. Chastain has the lead role with Elba as her lawer and O'Dowd as a guy who introduces the Russian mafia into the mix.
Production is already underway and we can probably expect to see this drop next year right around this time, perfect to catch the eye of awards voters.[Mashable]
