Sierra/Affinity has sold out international territories for “Molly’s Game,” less than a month after the project came together with Idris Elba and Jessica Chastain in Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut.
Chastain is playing the lead role, based on the memoir by Molly Bloom, who wound up running the most exclusive high-stakes poker game in the world for eight years. Sorkin is also penning the script.
Mark Gordon will produce with Amy Pascal. Entertainment One and The Mark Gordon Company are financing. Leopoldo Gout is producing.
