First of, I don't know why Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is even attempting to fight "The Social Network." I think he was presented in a good light -- sort of like an anti-hero you want to protect. Jesse Eisenberg greatly portrayed him, and director David Fincher and scriptwriter Aaron Sorkin gave him narrative credence.
But apparently, behind the scenes, Zuckerberg is waging a public relations battle against Sony's "The Social Network." Click here to read the complete story inside the Facebook founder's fight against the controversial film.

Jay Baruchel (pictured left) and Seann William Scott (second from left) are getting ready to play hockey in the indie comedy "Goon." Alison Pill (third from left) and Marc-Andre Grondin (right) complete the cast. The film will begin shooting in Winnipeg mid-October from director Michael Dowse.
Baruchel and Evan Goldberg wrote the script inspired by the book "Goon: The True Story of an Unlikely Journey into Minor League Hockey" by Doug Smith and Adam Frattasio.
Baruchel, who's also producing, will play the best friend of Doug Glatt (Scott), a bouncer who has been touched by the fist of God! Where can he go to test his powerful fist? To inspire a downtrodden hockey team of course! Pill plays the female lead while Grondin stars as a French-Canadian star hockey player.

There's a planned film by Fox 2000 is an untitled Beach Boys project which revolves around the band's music but is not a biopic according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The "Hairspray" team of Craig Zadan and Neil Meron is behind the project. John Stamos will also be producing. Why? Well, the actor has toured with The Beach Boys as their drummer and has personal connection with the band since appearing in the music video of "Kokomo."
Susannah Grant (the upcoming "Burlesque" and "Footloose") is writing the project which will be very similar to "Mamma Mia!" where the music of ABBA was largely incorporated within the narrative of the film.

On a fall night in 2003, Harvard undergrad and computer programming genius Mark Zuckerberg sits down at his computer and heatedly begins working on a new idea.
