Taking the filler out of filmmaking.

I’m so excited about this. Columbia Pictures is in advanced talks with David Fincher to direct The Social Network, scripted by genius Aaron Sorkin. The film will focus on the evolution of Facebook from its 2004 creation on the Harvard campus by sophomore Mark Zuckerberg to a juggernaut with more than 200 million members. Scott Rudin and Michael De Luca are producing with Trigger Street’s Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti. The aim is to begin production later this year.

So why am I so amped? Well, for one, David Fincher is my favorite director. Say what you will about his movies, but the man has only gotten better and better as a director. Zodiac and The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button are absorbing, dialogue-heavy throwbacks. It’s absolutely the same man that made Fight Club, but he’s even more mature. Aaron Sorkin is the most rhythmic writer in Hollywood. I can listen to the West Wing without any visual and be completely fine.  So the pairing of these two actually makes me really excited for this film.
