It’s what we’ve all been waiting for, innit? I seriously think this will strip The Dark Knight of its title as most anticipated movie evar.
Writer Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip) has joined Facebook. More importantly, he’s created a Facebook group where it’s announced he’s penning Facebook: The Movie for mega-producer Scott Rudin (No Country For Old Men, There Will Be Blood).
This is not a joke.
Man, you gotta look at the talent involved. Scott Rudin is an Oscar-winning producer. You ever heard of a movie called No Country For Old Men? Yeah, he produced that junt. Ever heard of a small film named There Will Be Blood? Yeah, he was an executive producer on that bad boy.
And Aaron Sorkin?? Good Lord, just check the resume. A Few Good Men, The West Wing, The American President. (We don’t count Studio 60, around these parts — this is 30 Rock country, fam.) The man’s been nominated for Emmys and Golden Globes, for cryin’ out loud!
So there’s no doubt in my mind that Facebook: The Movie (or The Facebook Movie) will be a compelling piece of cinema, a pre-ordained critical darling destined for box office success. I feel I’ve been SuperPoked by the cinematic gods!
