Writer-producer Aaron Sorkin (pictured above) creator of "The West Wing," is about to get a whole lot of friends on Facebook. Sorkin, one of Hollywood's highest-profile writers and TV show creators, is in negotiations to write an untitled film project about the founders of the popular social networking site that Scott Rudin will produce for Columbia. Sorkin broke the news on Facebook when he opened up his own account.
"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.)" Does any one see a rival MySpace film in the making?
