Molly's Game

The movie Molly’s Game starring Jessica Chastain as Molly Bloom has now begun principal photography in November 2016 in Toronto, Canada.

The film also stars Idris Elba and Kevin Costner.

The film is based on the memoir of Molly Bloom, a young skier and former Olympic hopeful. In an effort to find out what to do with her life she starts working as an assistant for a man who runs underground poker games for celebrities.

She becomes a successful entrepreneur, and then a target of an FBI investigation, when she establishes a high-stakes, international poker game.Molly's Game starring Jessica Chastain
