I admit it; I am a Facebook addict. I can't even begin to estimate the amount of time I've spent stalking old high school classmates, writing on people's walls sending ridiculous "gifts" and, yes, poking people. Yet in all my wasted hours, never once did I consider making a movie out of these activities, so kudos to Aaron Sorkin for seeing potential where I saw none. Sorkin has announced (through Facebook, of course) that he will be making a film about the creation of the social networking site for uber-producer Scott Rudin. I find myself less than enthused about this news. Maybe it's just me, but is there really that interesting a story here?

Lord help us if this film is a success though, you just know it's only a matter of time before another studio greenlights a competing movie about MySpace, and then we're all doomed. You think flashing, pink, glittery text is annoying coming from your monitor? Just imagine it plastered across a multiplex screen.

Sorkin has created a Facebook group for research purposes as well as to keep fans up to date on how the project is progressing. You can check it out here: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=33807262256

Sounds really boring.
The only possible story that I could think of having any potential involving facebook, or myspace for that matter is about some 40 year old rapist pretending to be a little boy who wants to "chill" with middle school girls.
I wonder if something like that has been done, I certainly haven't seen it if it has.

Maybe they'll do it about the zombies vs vampires application and we could actually have a really cool Sci-fi Channel movie on our hands.  Hobo wars could provide some neat concepts as well.

Maybe they should make the movie about a crazy man who officialy erases both and facebook and myspace, and then all the addicts will have to get real lives! 

That would to be catagorized as an action/thriller/horror/dumbasfuck

That would be amazing, there might be mass suicides though.

This is just so painful, it shows just how out of touch with reality the so-called Hollywood Producers are, there is a mountain of original screenplays out there but they little, if anything in unearthing it.
Makes me cry a little deeper and a little longer inside.

I said this already on the front page version of the story, but I'm looking forward to it. Perhaps because I'm also involved in a website. It should have been an HBO movie though, not a theatrical release.
