One of the most popular social-networking sites on the Internet is about to get its very own movie. New York Magazine's Vulture section has confirmed that screenwriter Aaron Sorkin is currently writing a movie about the inception of Facebook.
In preperation for this task, Sorkin has created his very own Facebook page (you have to add him as a "Friend" to view the full page) and he has also created a Aaron Sorkin & the Facebook Movie Group on the site, in which he himself said he was writing the film.
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.)
Vulture also got confirmation from producer Scott Rudin that this is legit and Sorkin is indeed writing this film for Sony. On the Aaron Sorkin & the Facebook Movie Group, you can ask questions to the man himself and, of course, write on "The Wall." Sorkin did say in his brief introduction to the site that he was looking for "Facebook stories" from users as well.
