David Fincher May Direct A Facebook Movie

Posted Jun 24, 2009

David Fincher was a movie director for Fight Club, Se7en, and Panic Room.  Now he is being considered to direct a movie that revolves around the growth of Facebook and the life of Mark Zuckerberg.  The working title of the movie is called “The Social Network” and Columbia Pictures is in advanced talks with Fincher.

The movie will start with Zuckerberg’s creation of the social network while at Harvard University back in 2004 to the point where it has over 200 million users today.

Scott Rudin and Michael De Luca would be the producers. Kevin Spacey and Dana Brunetti may also be involved.  The author of the script is Aaron Sorkin.  Columbia hopes to begin production later this year.  Another rumor about the movie is that Michael Cera and Shia LaBeouf are being looked at to play the role of Mark Zuckerberg.
