As long as we’re talking about certain people who should be kicked in the balls for making bad movies about technology products, let’s add Aaron Sorkin to the mix. He’s thinking of making a movie about, you guessed it, Facebook.
If Sorkin goes through with this wonderful (eye-roll) idea, I’m sure it’ll be a really great movie (double eye-roll). He sounds like he’s just the guy to make the film, too (triple eye-roll) as he says on his own Facebook group “I figured a good first step in my preparation would be finding out what Facebook is, so I’ve started this page. (Actually it was started by my researcher, Ian Reichbach, because my grandmother has more Internet savvy than I do and she’s been dead for 33 years.” In other news, I’ll be writing a movie about break dancing after I learn what “popping and locking” means.
To be fair, Sorkin has been behind some pretty dynamite shows; The West Wing and Sports Night, to name a couple. And the movie will apparently be about the story behind Facebook, which I guess could be kind of interesting. Hopefully they’ll tap Dustin Diamond (Screech on Saved by the Bell) to play Mark Zuckerberg.
