David Fincher To Direct Facebook Film

Director David Fincher is in advanced talks to helm The Social Network, a film about the formation of Facebook.

The script was written by Aaron Sorkin, who also penned A Few Good Men and many episodes of The West Wing, Sports Night and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.

Variety reports the flick will follow the evolution of Facebook from its 2004 creation on the Harvard campus by sophomore Mark Zuckerberg to a juggernaut with more than 200 million members.

Fincher last directed Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

    No…JUST NO!

    Any movie about internet site formations should be slapped with a “HELLS TO THE NO.”

    Yeah, he could make a movie about the most boring thing on Earth and it would end up interesting. He’s THAT good.

    You ought to really think about working on developing this blog into a major authority in this market. You obviously have a grasp handle of the matters everybody is searching for on this site anyways and you could without a doubt even make a buck or two off of some advertisements. I would explore following recent topics and raising the amount of write ups you put up and I guarantee you’d begin seeing some awesome traffic in the near future. Just a thought, good luck in whatever you do!
