Facebook Movie Gets Poked for Production by Columbia


End of Show is reporting that a movie based on the popular social network Facebook, or rather a movie based on the creation of Facebook has been greenlit by Columbia Pictures.  For those who don’t know (basically, those of you who couldn’t possibly be reading this, as you’d have to be away from technology to not know), Facebook was the creation of Mark Zuckerberg, a geeky guy who went to Harvard.  He decided to create a network to allow people around campus to connect with each other, share interests, and become “friends” with each other.

A few years later, a couple bajillion people now use the social network, and Zuckerberg is valued in the billions.  Honestly, I really don’t know what more they’d be able to add to the story in order to make it a movie.  But, they’ve got about $47 million, or as Mark Zuckerberg would call it, pocket change, to mess around with.  Fight Club director David Fincher is signed on to direct, with Scott Rudin, Kevin Spacey, and Dana Brunetti will produce.

It’s hard to imagine that Facebook is only a little over 5 years old, and there’s already a movie being made about it.  Is the impact of this social network really enough to warrant a movie being made about it?   Only time will tell.  Will you become a “Fan”?
