Facebook, the social network we have all come to know and love over the last few years, may be moving to the big screen. That’s right I’m talking about an actual Facebook movie. According to New York Entertainment Aaron Sorkin is going to be writing the screenplay. For those of you who don’t remember Aaron, he is known for films such as “A Few Good Men” and “Charlie Wilson’s War.” Aaron is also well known for being the creator of “The West Wing.” Aaron’s IMDB page has more information on his work.
Aaron has a Facebook fan page on which he states:
“I’ve just agreed to write a movie for Sony and producer Scott Rudin about how Facebook was invented. I figured a good first step in my preparation would be finding out what Facebook is, so I’ve started this page. (Actually it was started by my researcher, Ian Reichbach, because my grandmother has more Internet savvy than I do and she’s been dead for 33 years.)”
Two questions immediately popped into my mind when I heard that there may be a facebook movie.
Why is someone making a Facebook movie?
Who cares that someone is making a Facebook movie?
So now the speculation begins, who on earth is going to play Mark Zuckerberg? Cnet thinks Jason Schwartzman I say it should be that fellow from “Napoleon Dynamite,” John Heder.
