In 2010, America got a closer look at Facebook with The Social Network. As expected, people that never worked for Facebook fell in love with the flick. One of the folks behind it suggest we should go for round two with the social media platform.

A Sequel In The Works?

In an interview with the Associated Press, Aaron Sorkin discussed a strong possibility for a sequel.  “First of all, I know a lot more about Facebook in 2005 than I do in 2018, but I know enough to know that there should be a sequel. A lot of very interesting, dramatic stuff has happened since the movie ends with settling the lawsuit from the Winklevoss Twins and Eduardo Saverin,” he said.

If that’s not enough to warrant a continuation, producer Scott Rudin also managed to chime in. “I’ve gotten more than one email from [Rudin] with an article attached saying, ‘Isn’t it time for a sequel?’,” Sorkin said.

The Critically Acclaimed Network

The Social Network earned around $225 million at the box office. When it came to award season, the film was an absolute force. At the Golden Globes, the film won for Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Director, Best Original Score, and Best Screenplay. This was Sorkin’s first Best Screenplay win of his career.

The Oscars found the film winning for Best Original Score, Best Original Score, and Best Adapted Screenplay. With all of these awards, any sequel of the film will have a high standard to meet.

So Many Stories

Since the film was released eight years ago, plenty of topics can be used for a potential sequel. Something that can easily play out on screen is the Cambridge Analytica fiasco.

In 2018, it was discovered that Facebook gave personal information of 87 million users to the British firm. Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg issued apologizes in various newspapers in the U.S. and U.K. For many, seeing Jesse Eisenberg portraying Zuckerberg again would certainly be a joy.
