Sorkin on Facebook

If you're like me, you'd rather rundown a razor blade into lemon juice before watching the Facebook movie aka THE SOCIAL NETWORK.

Even though I am a total hypocrite and have a Facebook, I just don't see it as an acceptable story to bring to the bigscreen. Aaron Sorkin, who is the scriptwriter, knew it was something he immediately wanted to do, ""It's the fastest I've ever said 'yes' to a project." REALLY?! I wonder if Fincher felt the same way.

The idea came from Mark Zuckerberg's intoxicated status reports about how much of a bitch some girl was on Facemash, which apparently was like Hot or Not. Originally Facebook was a program for Harvard goers to search for other students within the University. Then it was unleashed upon the masses and turned everyone into mush.

Sorkin talks about his rash decision on MakingOf, a site co-founded by Natalie Portman. The site basically gives movie lovers a behind the scenes look at the filmmaking process.

THE SOCIAL NETWORK is set to be released in 2010.

Also read the script. It was one of the best screenplays I've read for any upcoming project by far...and I read a lot of scripts.

I have a feeling people will be pleasantly surprised by this once it comes out (as long as they cast it well). I've heard talk of Shia LaBouef but, while he may have the right look, I think it may have themes too similar to the Wall Street sequel. I think Emile Hirsch would be a good choice as long as he looks young enough still.

With Fincher though, I have

The script was actually really good.

I read a copy of the script a couple of months ago, and I thought it was really good. It was surprisingly captivating. I'm sure if you search around, you can find reviews for the script. I think this will be a great film if they stick to the draft I read.

Yes, it seems horrible but...

Sorkin's a great writer (well, generally). I think it's too early to call before we really know what the project is going to be about - there could be any number of takes or spins on it, and who knows, something could really work. It doesn't have to be a 2 hour advert.
