Aaron Sorkin, screenwriter of Charlie Wilson’s War and The West Wing, is scripting a movie all about FACEBOOK and its formation. Weird.
Paramount Pictures wanted to keep the film on the down low but Sorkin leaked this information on his Facebook page, but of course.
Facebook was created in 2004 on the Harvard campus by sophomore student Mark Zuckerberg and has now grown to over 60 million members. Facebook is valued at $16 billion and big companies like Microsoft and Google have been in a bidding war over the company.
The movie will focus on how Zuckerberg and his associate’s lives have changed after becoming an overnight sensation. Sounds a little dry. I don’t think I could justify paying money to watch an entire movie about Facebook unless it was a long slideshow of extremely drunk people doing things (like driving the porcelain bus) that would embarrass their families, bosses and co-workers.
