Aaron Sorkin to Adapt Memoir of Molly’s Game for Film About ‘Poker Princess’

Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has announced plans to adapt the memoir “Molly’s Game” about a former skier who wound up hosting exclusive high stakes poker games for big name stars the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire. 

“Molly’s Game” will tell the story of Molly Bloom, also known as the “poker princess”.  She attracted the A-list celebrities and would later become the subject of an FBI investigation.

Sorkin’s accomplishments include the recent “Steve Jobs” film that has him in the running for an Oscar nod after picking up a Golden Globe nomination. 

He is also set to write the script for a biopic of the US actor Lucille Ball, with Cate Blanchett attached.
