The fantastic Aaron Sorkin ("West Wing" creator), one of Hollywood's biggest writers, is about to write a film about the founders of Facebook!
I've always known there's drama behind the scenes. Have you read the Rolling Stone article, The Battle for Facebook?
If not, here it is, read it in awe!
Well, Sorkin opened up his Facebook account for research!
"I understand there are a few other people using Facebook pages under my name -- which I find more flattering than creepy -- but this is me. I don't know how I can prove that but feel free to test me," he wrote before going on to talk about the movie project.
"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.)"

There are many rumors surrounding a possible "Batman 3." Is Angelina Jolie going to be Catwoman? What about Cher? Oh, what about Johnny Depp as the Riddler?
Well, The Hollywood Reporter has caught up with Director Christopher Nolan, and here's what the article revealed:
Take a second and Google "Angelina Jolie" and "Catwoman." Then click on one of the 696,000 search results for a taste of the fervor that has enveloped "The Dark Knight" and its director. Nolan hasn't even agreed to helm a follow-up, saying only, "We'll see," before departing on a well-deserved vacation. Yet the fans who powered Warners' biggest domestic hit ever ($491.7 million and counting) are already speculating breathlessly based on the little information known. Will Lucius Fox's (Morgan Freeman) reference to the bat suit withstanding cat claws be put to the test by Catwoman? Since Heath Ledger's Joker was hauled off to the insane asylum rather than killed, will the role be recast?
If so, is Daniel Day-Lewis interested? How about Johnny Depp as the Riddler? The devotion is a testament to Nolan's singular vision of the Batman universe -- and to how important it is to Warner Bros. that chief Alan Horn sign Nolan for a third go-round. And perhaps Jolie.
