Molly Bloom on her skiing career and the poker ring that inspired the film ‘Molly’s Game’
Molly Bloom told her story because she had to pay her debts.
The former elite skier, who retired after a devastating wipeout left her injured, had no money to her name and was in debt up to her ears. She did, however, have a priceless story. So she wrote a book about her experiences.
Once she left the slopes, the athlete went on to help organize high-stakes poker games for over a decade, hosting clientele like Hollywood stars Ben Affleck, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire. Many of the games reportedly had buy-ins at $250,000 and beyond. Bloom went into debt while bankrolling the games and extending credit. She then got hooked on drugs and alcohol as a means to deal with the stress of it all.
After publishing her book in 2014, Bloom spent the next two years trying to broker a meeting with Oscar-winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, in hopes of convincing him to write a screenplay for a film adaptation of her book.
She wanted Sorkin because he’s proven to be “bankable,” having written the screenplays for 2010 release “The Social Network” and NBC’s former prime-time juggernaut “The West Wing.” Also, as Bloom explained in a phone interview, she didn’t want the story to feel one-dimensional. She had spoken with other filmmakers, but “they didn’t see beyond the glitz and the glam.”
Sorkin signed on to do the film, and Jessica Chastain took on the lead role as Molly. The film would go on to chronicle Bloom’s journey from pro skier to poker broker and beyond (the notable actors mentioned above are not referenced in the movie). And the film, which released in late December, ending up being a success, with Sorkin receiving an Oscar nomination for adapted screenplay.- Source
