When 'The Social Network' was first released in 2010, David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin's movie pulled back the lid on the social network and Mark Zuckerberg's private life.
Since then, a lot more's happened to both Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook. None of it good, and all of it ripe for another searingly written, sharply directed movie. Thankfully, Aaron Sorkin hears you and he knows what he has to do.
"First of all, I know a lot more about Facebook in 2005 than I do in 2018, but I know enough to know that there should be a sequel," he told AP Entertainment. "A lot of very interesting, dramatic stuff has happened since the movie ends with settling the lawsuit from the Winklevoss Twins and Eduardo Saverin."
Sorkin added that Scott Rudin, producer of 'The Social Network', has been prodding him every so often to get started on a sequel. Considering that he's got 'The West Wing' to reboot as well, maybe it's a couple of years away. Maybe he's looking for that perfect ending where Facebook finally collapses in on itself and we all leave this awful thing called social media behind once and for all.
Or maybe not.
