Toronto truly is becoming the “Hollywood of the North”. Over the past few years, several big-name movies have been filmed in our city, and it looks like that tradition is continuing on a seemingly unstoppable momentum.
One movie currently in production is Molly’s Game, a project by director Aaron Sorkin who also helmed The Social Network, Moneyball, Steve Jobs. The lead star of the movie is none other than two-time Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain, who flew into Toronto near the end of November last year to film. She has started in several blockbuster films, including The Help, Interstellar, The Martian and Zero Dark Thirty.
She remains in Toronto now as she finishes up her last rounds on set. The last day of shooting is at the end of this month, Jan 31.
During her down time, Chastain is out and about in the city, sometimes with her boyfriend Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo, a fashion exec for Moncler. Just a few days ago, they were spotted having dinner at the upscale restaurant Brothers by Bay and Bloor. Chastain is also said to be a fond of Buca in Yorkville and Ufficio on Dundas West.
