Facebook story goes to the silver screen
David Fincher to direct
As if the Facebook hype wasn't annoying enough as it is, it will soon end up in a theater near you. Columbia Pictures have approved production of 'The Social Network', a story about the formation of social notworking site Facebook. The idea has been around for a while, but now it's officially going into production.
The movie will be based on a script by Aaron Sorkin, the man behind A Few Good Men and The West Wing, while David Fincher will be directing. Fincher is best known for directing Seven, Fight Club and The Curious Case of you-know-who.
So, the staff is top notch, and we have no doubt they'll do a pretty good job. Filming will start in October and the budget is $47 million, which doesn't sound like too much nowadays, considering how much Michael Bay spends on his nonsense.
