Washington:Actor Idris Elba said he would love to collaborate with his ‘Molly’s Game’ co-star Jessica Chastain.

Reportedly, the 45-year-old actor said he would like to recreate their ‘amazing’ chemistry on another project after the poker drama.

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,” Elba said.
The actor, who played defence lawyer Charlie Jaffey to Chastain’s Molly Bloom, said she is an artiste with good work ethic.

“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,” he said.

The film follows the true story of an 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 the FBI.

It is based on 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’.
