Aaron Sorkin, writer of The West Wing and Charlie Wilson’s War, has announced on his Facebook profile that he will be writing a movie about the site. At first I was confused as to how a Facebook movie would work, who would be the villain and where would the explosions come from? However, I read the following:
“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.)”
Mark Zuckenberg created the site in 2004 at Harvard during his sophomore year. It now has over 60 million members and is valued at $16 billion. No doubt things will need to be made up, such as a love interest. A geek who created and ran a huge website would have had no chance of a female, so one will need to be created to please the movie going demographic.
