‘The Social Network’ Could Get a Sequel, as Aaron Sorkin Thinks It’s Time for One

Aaron Sorkin was the writer of the film ‘The Social Network’, which released in 2010

Highlights
  • Aaron Sorkin believes it’s time for a sequel to ‘The Social Network’
  • The 2010 movie was a critical and commercial success
  • ‘The Social Network’ starred Jesse Eisenberg as Mark Zuckerberg

Movie producers used to wait a while before making movies on real-life events, but recent times have seen producers jump onto the bandwagon as soon as a good story makes itself available. One such example is the film ‘The Social Network', which was released in 2010. The movie detailed the early years of the founding of Facebook, focusing on the company's CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The movie starred Jesse Eisenberg as Zuckerberg, and was written by renowned film writer Aaron Sorkin.

Sorkin in an interview with the Associated Press now says that he has been approached by ‘The Social Network' producer Scott Rudin about a possible sequel to the 2010 film. While nothing is finalised as yet, Sorkin does believe that it could be time for a sequel to the movie, which was a critical and commercial success. He believes that a lot of interesting events have happened at Facebook since the first movie, and these could be the subject of a sequel.

Some of these events include the Cambridge Analytica data privacy scandal, the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US Presidential Election, the acquisition and growth of WhatsApp and Instagram, and more. The story could pick up exactly where ‘The Social Network' left off, and go into more detail on some of these events. However, like the first movie, a sequel would likely be slightly fictionalised and dramatised for the sake of entertainment.

As we mentioned, nothing is confirmed for now, and it could turn out that no sequel is ever produced. However, we'd like to see a sequel, if only to gain a better understanding of what went down at Facebook through the years since ‘The Social Network' was released.
