David Fincher in Talks to Direct Aaron Sorkin's Facebook Movie

David Fincher Might Direct Aaron Sorkin's Facebook Movie

The movie Aaron Sorkin is writing about Facebook looks to be getting even more bizarre: Word is Fight Club and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button director David Fincher is in talks to direct the movie. Can I assume the first rule is to not talk about Facebook?

Actually, I probably can assume that when it comes to this top-secret project, the script of which has supposedly been printed on red paper so it would be harder to photocopy. (Seriously!) This is the first big news about the project since last year, when Sorkin joined Facebook for the first time to get familiar with the site while he was working on the script.

In addition to Fincher's possible involvement, there's also news of a possible title for the project: The Social Network. All we know plot-wise thus far is that it will "focus on 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."

Could Sorkin and Fincher turn this into a project worth watching — or does it just seem baffling to you? And does this mean it's high time to get David Fincher on Facebook?

well i'm just not sure that i get what kind of plot they will come up with for this movie but ok. it could be good if they make it dramatic but it doesn't seem like it's going in that direction.
