Facebook: The Movie? Not exactly…

Everyone is shaking their heads in disbelief over the fact that screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (Charlie Wilson’s War) is now penning a movie based on Facebook, the immensely popular social networking website, and has even set up a group on said site, in order to get more info about it. But apparently, people should listen more carefully to Sorkin, because the movie will focus on the people who created Facebook, and how the popular site was created, not “a magical Facebook adventure”.

I thought Pirates Of Silicon Valley, a TV-movie chronicling the rise of Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and their respective companies, was quite a fascinating film, and while the Facebook creators probably aren’t as interesting (then again, who knows?), Aaron Sorkin is one of the most talented screenwriters in Hollywood today, so I am personally looking forward to this film, what about you?
