Aaron Sorkin on Directing: 'I Had the Time of My Life'

Saturday, 09 September 2017 11:38 AM

TORONTO (AP) — Aaron Sorkin has premiered his directorial debut, "Molly's Game," to rave reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Though a longtime screenwriter, the film is Sorkin's first time directing. The film, about the so-called "poker princess" Molly Bloom, was received rapturously at its Friday night premiere.

Its star, Jessica Chastain, was also immediately added to the best-actress favorites for this season's Oscars.

In an interview, Sorkin said of his first time directing that "I had the time of my life."

Sorkin said he came very close to directing his script for his Facebook drama, "The Social Network," but David Fincher instead took the helm.

The screenwriter-turned-director said he's not done working with filmmakers, but that he hopes to direct again.
