Facebook: The Movie!

No, really. I can't make this up. I'm not that original.

However, apparently the "amazing" story behind Facebook is just original and riveting enough that it should be a movie! Wait, the news gets even better.

You know that guy who directed such brilliant films as Fight Club, Seven, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button? You probably know where this is going, then. Yes, David Fincher is in talks to direct FACEBOOK: THE MOVIE, which has actually been dubbed with the new title of "The Social Network". Now, I'm not going to just bash this movie from the start. For all we know, it could end up being good. With Fincher behind the reigns, anything is possible. All I know is, the premise of the story of how Facebook became just another social networking website among a slew of already popular and famous sites just like it does not sound like a good movie to me. The war between Microsoft and Apple, that was interesting. This? A couple college kids stumble into wealth and I'm suppose to pay money to see a story about it? that's like telling me that a bunch of banks and corporations made a stupid mistake and they want me to pay for it.....oh, wait...

I guess it could be good, but there's nothing even remotely exciting to wet my appetite about it just yet. A Director makes a movie what it is, but I'm not sure even Fincher can pull a stupid concept like this out of the trash and make a diamond out of it.
