While we're still sitting tight waiting for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs biopic to come to fruition, writer Aaron Sorkin has already set his sights on his next project; the Molly Bloom memoir "Molly's Game." For those unfamiliar, Molly Bloom's main passion was skiing and when she was passed up come Olympic time, she made her way to Los Angeles. Once there, she got involved in high-stakes poker games and found herself running them, often playing with the likes of Tobey Maguire, Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon, among other celebrities.

The creation of Facebook is an arguably mundane topic that Sorkin took and crafted film with a quick wit and a lot of fun dialogue. I've read a little about Molly Bloom's life and it sounds like it could be ridiculously entertaining, depending on who they get to direct it. From David Fincher to Danny Boyle, Sorkin has really been pulling in the A-list directors. I somehow doubt it, but one wonders if any of the actual celebrities would be interested in reprising on their on-screen personas.

Given that they're trying to get that Steve Jobs picture rolling this winter, we can expect Molly Bloom's story to hit film sometime in 2015.
