Aaron Sorkin and Scott Rudin, the screenwriter and producer of The Social Network, think about a possible sequel to the 2010 film. In the film they would like to highlight “the dark side” of Facebook, Sorkin says in the podcast on Wednesday. Happy.Sad.Confused.
“Scott and I want to see it,” says Sorkin. “People are asking. We’ve discovered the dark side of Facebook.”
The screenwriter recently read the book Zucked, in which author Roger McNamee criticizes the social medium. Sorkin contacted him to discuss a possible film adaptation.
Sorkin would like to make the film, but only if David Fincher takes the direction. The director also contributed to The Social Network.
The Social Network is inspired by the book The Accidental Billionaires, about the origin of Facebook. The film received eight Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor (Jesse Eisenberg as Mark Zuckerberg). Sorkin won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.
