David Fincher Says There’s Been Talk of a ‘Social Network’ Sequel

David Fincher, the director of the critically acclaimed film The Social Network, has revealed that there have been talks about making a sequel.

However, Fincher also warned that a sequel would be “a can of worms.” This is likely due to the many controversies that Facebook has been embroiled in in recent years, including the spread of misinformation, the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and the company’s role in the 2016 US presidential election.

Despite the challenges, Fincher said that he is open to the idea of making a sequel, but only if there is a “good story to tell.” He also said that he would want to work with the original screenwriter, Aaron Sorkin, on the project.

So, what could a sequel to The Social Network look like? It’s hard to say for sure, but it’s possible that it could focus on the following topics:

  • The rise of Facebook and its impact on society
  • Zuckerberg’s increasing power and influence
  • The many controversies that Facebook has faced in recent years
  • The Rise Of The Elon Musk

If Fincher and Sorkin are able to put together a compelling story, a sequel to The Social Network could be a must-see for fans of the original film and anyone interested in the tech industry or the future of social media.
