So, you heard about this Facebook movie they're making, right? About the social networking site's rocky, apparently scandalous path to becoming the greatest thing since sliced bread? Well, apparently acclaimed director David Fincher is circling the project, which makes it sound a lot more interesting to us. Still, it's about the development and sale of a Website. Doesn't that sound kinda, I dunno, boring? Not like Flash of Genius "I invented the windshield wiper" boring, but maybe The Late Shift "who will host this TV show?" boring? Considering Fincher's body of work, there are a bunch more Facebook-related movie ideas we'd love to see him apply his talents to. Here are five.
Although it may seem otherwise, not every comic book ever created will get adapted into a film. Sure, a ton of them get optioned, but relatively few will make it to the big screen. For instance, some comics you look at and think, "Wow, this could never be a movie. It's just too good a comic book." Well, Watchmen has blown the doors off of that argument (the fourth behind-the-scenes video certainly helps), and that means that all bets are off. Despite (or because of) being one of the few simultaneously hysterical and beautiful comic books on stands today, Eric Powell's The Goon is getting made into a movie.
