Actor Kevin Costner is in talks to play Jessica Chastain's father in screenwriter Aaron Sorkin's directorial debut "Molly's Game".
Idris Elba and Michael Cera are already on board the project, which adapts Molly Bloom's memoir "Molly's Game: From Hollywood's Elite to Wall Street's Billionaire Boys Club, My High-Stakes Adventure in the World of Underground Poker", according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Sorkin has also written the script.
Chastain is starring as the film's title character, a skier who, after her Olympic dreams are dashed, heads to Los Angeles and becomes a cocktail waitress.
She, however, finds success as an organiser of underground poker games for the Hollywood elite.
The movie focuses on her relationship with her criminal defense lawyer (Elba), who learns there's much more to Molly than the tabloids led the world to believe.
