The Wrap is reporting that Jessica has been offered the lead in Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut “Molly’s Game”. She is still figuring out her schedule and has not accepted or declined the offer yet according to The Wrap.
Set in the world of high-stakes poker, the film is based on the memoir by Molly Bloom that Sorkin adapted himself. Bloom was a world-class skier who, after failing to make the Olympics, took a year off before law school and accepted a job as a waitress in Los Angeles. She put her entrepreneurial skills to good use and eventually found her way into running high-stakes poker games for Hollywood’s elite for eight years before the FBI brought her down.
Sorkin’s “Steve Jobs” collaborator Mark Gordon will produce with Amy Pascal, the former Sony executive who distributed Chastain’s acclaimed drama “Zero Dark Thirty.” Leopoldo Gout is also a producer on the high-profile project.
Jessica has joined the advisory board of a newly launched female-empowerment production company We Do It Together. Variety is reporting the following story the first film will be announced in May. It was announced earlier this week that Jessica launched her own production company Freckle Films, as we reported earlier this week.
Jessica Chastain, Queen Latifah, Juliette Binoche and Catherine Hardwicke have joined production company We Do It Together to produce films and TV that boost the empowerment of women.
The nonprofit is planning to develop a slate of “inspiring” films by and about women to ensure future opportunities for known and emerging voices within the industry. The first film will be announced in May at the Cannes Film Festival.
The board of directors includes producer Albert Berger; DDA Partner Dana Archer; the Gersh Agency’s Sandra Lucchesi; Mosaic manager Paul Nelson; producer-director Carol Polakoff; producer Shelby Stone; producer-philanthropist Chiara Tilesi; and “Septembers of Shiraz” writer-producer Hanna Weg.
The advisory board includes Chastain, Latifah, Binoche and Harwicke along with Freida Pinto; director Hany Abu-Assad; actress Zhang Ziyi; “Belle” director Amma Asante; “The Diary of a Teenage Girl” director Marielle Heller; “City of God” director Katia Lund; “Elles” director Ma?gorzata Szumowska; actress Alysia Reiner; National Humanities Medal honoree Henry Louis Gates; and “Wadjda” director Haifaa Al-Mansour.
Jessica launched her own production company: Freckle Films. Deadline is reporting that Freckle Films opted two books.
Jessica Chastain has launched Freckle Films, a new production venture, and inked a first look overhead deal with Trudie Styler and Celine Rattray’s transatlantic financing-production banner Maven Pictures. The two companies have already optioned two books: The Magician’s Lie by Greer Macallister and Camille Pagan’s novel, Life and Other Near-Death Experiences.
The Magician’s Lie tells the story of a famous female illusionist named Ada, who is suspected of killing her husband after the dead body of a man is found inside of one of her stage props. A young police officer, Virgil Fecht, manages to track down the female magician and take her into his custody. Over the course of one night, Ada must recount her life story in order to prove her innocence.
In Life and Other Near Death Experiences, Libby Miller discovers she has an aggressive form of cancer and that her husband, Tom, is secretly gay on the same day. Libby immediately drops everything in her life, including Tom, and takes a trip to Puerto Rico where she meets a man named Shiloh, who gives her a new perspective on life and getting treatment.
