David Fincher isn’t quite ready to give a “like” to the concept of doing a sequel to his 2010 Academy Award-winning film about the founding of Facebook, The Social Network.
Fincher, 61, talked about it with The Guardian in support of his new movie with Michael Fassbender, The Killer.

“Aaron [Sorkin, The Social Network’s screenwriter] and I have talked about it, but, um… that’s a can of worms,” Fincher said, and did not elaborate.
Sorkin would be up for it. In a 2021 interview, he said, “”I think what has been going on with Facebook these last few years is a story very much worth telling, and there is a way to tell it as a follow up to The Social Network, and that’s as much as I know.”
The Social Network won Oscars for Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Film Editing, and Best Original Score at the 2011 Academy Awards. It starred Jesse Eisenberg as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, with Andrew Garfield as the company’s cofounder, Eduardo Saverin, Justin Timberlake as Sean Parker, and Armie Hammer in a dual role as the twins Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss.
