David Fincher Wants to Be Your Facebook Friend


Don’t worry, this idea isn’t quite as dumb as it sounds. David Fincher is now in talks to direct The Social Network (gonna need a new title there folks), which chronicles the story of the meteoric rise of Facebook from its inception in Mark Zuckerberg’s Harvard dorm room to today where it boasts 200 million members and a massively inflated net worth.

I’m not terribly sure how you make a movie like this exciting, but I have faith in Fincher that he could do something interesting with it. As for casting, I’d be willing to be anything Anton Yelchin snags the Zuckerberg role.

My only hope is that if this movie is a success, they don’t start making websites the next comic books, video games or board games to start basing movies off of. If I ever see a Twitter movie come to the big screen, I’ll launch a mortar attack against Hollywood myself.
