Rumours doing the rounds in Hollywood suggest that David Fincher – who has been responsible for some absolute belters including Se7en, Fight Club and err…Panic Room – is to direct the upcoming Facebook movie.
The film will be based on Ben Mezrich’s book The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, a Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal. Aaron Sorkin – creator of The West Wing – is all set to write the screenplay apparently and Kevin Spacey is said to be involved in producing the film.
So, who’s going to play Mark Zuckerberg? I’m no casting agent but I reckon Michael Cera has got to be a shoe-in. Not only does he look the part – he’s also got the gawky, nerdy and nervous act of to a tee.
