When it happened, it did sound like something out of a poker movie and it is no surprise to see it being turned into a film. I look forward to watching this when it is released

If this movie is made i will definitely watch it if it runs at any cinema in my town. I love biographical movies if they are good and their stories are interesting. I think you're going to get a good movie. It would have been better if he signed up with an American production house because they manage to raise more money with their films.

such a film would be worth creating and created ... the story is very interesting and unusual ... at 64 years of playing poker at such a high level it's certainly a fantasy ..... I hope that when I'm 64 I'll also keep the clarity of mind and I will play well poker .... very cool grandfather

It is a nice story, but i dont see how they can turn this into a movie.
Not many interesting parts for a whole movie Smile

yeah why not- this really is a story with the ending worthy of a Hollywood movie, heck even with George Clooney starring as john hesp. now if some hot babe will say yes to the question if you want to see this epic movie, then i will see it too...

Maybe if he would have win the whole shebang people would be interested but I really cannot think one good reason 4 me to watch a two hours movie about a feelgood 4th place finish.

I think this is a very fun story that happened to this guy kohn hesp, some of you say it is not interesting but you just don't know what good,money and good talrnt can do to a movie, they can make good product from a very small idea. So here a good movie can be created.

Having read the story for this. which isnt even a story,
a couple of paragraphs Smile then its all you needed to know.
They will have to blow it a bit, to keep viewers interested.

But no matter what it will be much better than many other movies out there,
like that silliness sharknado, which they keep shooting sequels.
Who is watching that now, seriously...

John Hesp... I love this guy. His presence at the final table of the 2017 WSOP main event attracted many casual viewers from all over the world.
I wonder who will be portraying the role of Hesp. Bob Odenkirk?

Gunning for the casual players: Hollywood edition.
I guess all rooms, and all sharks, hope that this movie will be a success, as it would generate some inflow of fresh blood (and money) to the tables.

64-year-old grandpa... Let's see. Maybe they will get DeNiro to generate some buzz for marketing purposes as well.
Kek, I am kidding. If it's a british company then this 'movie' will be buried as a BBC tv production at best.

That´s really a nice story for a movie, that the grandpa have won a WSOP tourney. So we see, that the dream from a bracelet cen be true in the final part of the life for everyone. Now we see which actor play the part from the grandpa. Jack Nicholson was nice in my opinion Big Smile
