Facebook: The Movie
Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin has agreed to make a film about the founders of social networking site Facebook.
Sorkin, who created US TV drama The West Wing and wrote the Tom Hanks movie Charlie Wilson's War, has even opened a Facebook account to aid his research. What?!
I use facebook. I am even one of the very few ad/marketing/media/socialmedia people that will admit I LIKE Facebook. But a MOVIE?! How dull and utterly boring would that be. Although I suppose politics can be dull and boring and it's made interesting and watchable over and over again - but there's always a good bit of drama: affairs, assassinations and/or attempts, theft, bribery etc... but FACEBOOK? Unless they do some Alien Autopsy type thing with it, I'm not sure I see where this is going.
Next we'll be watching Bill Gates: From the Begining Correction: we won't be watching it, they'll have just spent loads of money that could have been donated to a good cause.
