It has been almost a decade since Aaron Sorkin and David Fincher released the Facebook-founding movie, The Social Network. Now, Sorkin reveals that there has been back and forth discussion in regards to a sequel to the 2010 film.
Sorkin recently sat down for an interview with AP Entertainment, sharing the that the movie’s producer Scott Rudin has been consistently pushing the idea of creating another Facebook film.
“I’ve gotten more than one email from him with an article attached saying, ‘Isn’t it time for a sequel?’” Sorkin says.
There have definitely been enough events surrounding Facebook over the last few years to create a sequel. From hacking scandals to the Cambridge Analytica issue, enough Sorkin admits there should be a Social Network 2.
“First of all, I know a lot more about Facebook in 2005 than I do in 2018, but I know enough to know that there should be a sequel. A lot of very interesting, dramatic stuff has happened since the movie ends with settling the lawsuit from the Winklevoss Twins and Eduardo Saverin.”
