Aaron Sorkin will write the movie adaptation of Molly's Game, poker hostess Molly Bloom's memoir about her career organizing high-end private poker games for celebrities. (That career ended in an arrest, a guilty plea, and a year of probation.) According to Deadline, the Mark Gordon company optioned the book specifically for Sorkin, perhaps because the dude likes a dramatic poker scene. As Natalie on Sports Night would say, rack 'em up.
