Idris Elba wants to work with Jessica Chastain

Jessica Chastain and Idris Elba

Los Angeles, Jan 29 (UITV/IANS): Actor Idris Elba is keen to reunite with his "Molly's Game" co-star Jessica Chastain for another project.

Elba, 45, feels he has an "amazing" chemistry with Chastain, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"I think it's great when actors meet each other and like each other but then also when they sort of really go at working together. They create something that challenges themselves and challenges the audience. If I can work with Jessica again, I absolutely will," he said.

"Even if it was a role that was very different from the roles we have now, I could still trust her work ethic and how I feel when I'm working with her that we're going to do the best work. That's a really lucky place for me," Elba added.

The film is based on 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".

It is based on the true story of an Olympic-class skier, essayed by Chastain, who ran the world's most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The players included Hollywood stars, sports stars, business titans and the Russian mob.
