“The social network” was a controversial film. Released in 2010, the recreation of how Facebook was created and what it supposed, managed to get three Oscars from the Academy of Hollywood, but not with the best film, for which it was nominated.
“The Social Network” premiered in 2010 and won three Oscars.”
Would it make sense to make a sequel?
Second parts were never good but, in this case, it would give a lot of play. “The social network” focused on the controversy that revolved around the creation of the platform and how Mark Zuckerberg made it grow, not always in the cleanest way. Jesse Eisenberg actor who gave life to the CEO of Facebook on the big screen could possibly imagine what would come next.
The company that has become Facebook today has little to do with that which was reflected in theaters in 2011. Today has WhatsApp and Instagram, among many other companies and startups, and even the social network has completely changed.
In addition, in its recent history accumulate the arguments that could be given for the development of a second part of the film. Only with the security scandals that the firm has carried out during the last year, such as Cambridge Analytica but also many others, would give for the development of a complete script and, at least, a new movie.
It is not crazy. Aaron Sorkin, scriptwriter of “The Social Network”, assures that with everything that is known today of the company “could perfectly write a sequel”.
The producer of that film, Scott Rudin, seems to have it clear, and has written several times to Sorkin asking him to get down to work. “Very interesting, even dramatic, things have happened since we finished the film in 2010 with the end of the plagiarism lawsuit by the brothers Winklevoss and Eduardo Saverin,” acknowledged Sorkin.
