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

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.

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?

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
