Film crews were set up on Bayview Avenue near Belsize on Tuesday, November 29th, to film a new movie called “Molly’s Game”.
Residents were excited to try and catch glimpses of Aaron Sorkin, Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner and Michael Cera…sadly, to no avail.
“Molly’s Game” is the true story of Molly Bloom (Chastain), a beautiful, young, Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons. Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally is her criminal defence lawyer (Elba), who learns that there’s much more to Molly than the tabloids lead us to believe.
Crews will be back on Friday, January 13th for more filming. Check our website for more exciting neighbourhood news.
