Facebook Movie Gets Fight Club Director

Kevin Spacey is already lined up to produce The Social Network, and earlier in the summer the actor said shooting could begin this year. However, there was little else known about the movie. Based on an adaptation of Ben Mezrich's book, The Accidental Millionaires, The Social Network is a tale of Facebook's founding.

This week we learn that Aaron Sorkin, the man who gave us A Few Good Men and The West Wing is writing the screenplay for the upcoming Facebook movie. Not only that but the flick is to be directed by Fight Club and Se7en director, David Fincher.

Film site, MakingOf (via TechCrunch) has a short interview with Aaron Sorkin who says he's never said yes to anything faster than he said he'd do the Facebook movie. Sorkin says he's having a lot of fun writing the screenplay and is almost finished the first draft.

Given the talent behind the movie, will you go and see it?

Jane McEntegart works in content marketing at Intel and was previously Manager of Content Marketing at ASUS North America. Before that, she worked for more than 7 years at Tom's Guide and Tom's Hardware, holding such roles as Contributing Editor and Senior News Editor.

    I hardly believe something good is going to come out of such a weird concept :|

    Still not sure what the point of this movie is, other than to say it's been done.

    Am I the only one who gets a really weird image in their head when they think about what would happen if there was a The West Wing episode like Fight Club? I have a feeling it would involve one person somehow kicking their own ass in a circle around a crowded room while talking nonstop.

    Sure, if it's well done. It's a movie about founding a very interesting business in a very interesting, emerging market, adapted from a book, written/directed by ppl with talent. I'm sure it will be at least decent, if not great.

    Of course, rotten tomatoes will be the deciding factor as to if I see the movie or not.

    To paraphrase Penny-Arcade.

    If you don't watch bad movies, be sure to miss "Facebook: the motion picture". Coming soon to a dilapidated theater near you.

    wow, mainstream culture can be insanely stupid.

    Twilight? High School Musical? Now a Facebook movie? C'mon...seriously?
  • Nope i wont watch it.

    Hollywood realy is gasping at straws. All they can do at this point is remake the same movies over and over, or make movies about face book....come on. Someone bring some talent back to movie industry.
