In a world where Hollywood bases its blockbuster films on theme park rides, it was just a question of time before someone made a film about the social networking site that one in every fourteen people in the world is a member of. The surprising thing about THE SOCIAL NETWORK, however, is that that two of Hollywood's most critically acclaimed creative forces is at the helm. Along with producer and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, David Fincher has made an intense drama about the most popular site on the web.
David Fincher is a critically lauded american director who got his start in the movie business when he was hired by George Lucas' Industrial Light & Magic. One decade and a series of music videos and commericals later, he made his feature film debut with ALIEN 3 (1992). However, it was his sophomore effort SEVEN (1995) which would signal his arrival as a major directorial talent. SEVEN remains standing as a bona fide 90's classic, but it is nonetheless the 1999 FIGHT CLUB which secured Fincher a name in film history. Among his other films we find titles such as THE GAME (1997), PANIC ROOM (2002) and ZODIAC (2007). Fincher is currently directing the American remake of Swedish hit thriller THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO.
