‘The Social Network’ Sequel On Its Way? Deets Inside

Aaron Sorkin has a major update about the sequel of 2010's film 'The Social Network'. Now the sequel will connect Facebook with the US Capitol attack.

The Academy Award winner writer Aaron Sorkin, who gave one of the appreciable films ‘The Social Network’, announced that he has started working on the film’s sequel. He dropped a major update about the script, saying it would mainly revolve around Facebook and the January 6 attack in the US, and there would be a connection between both. 

In the recording of the Town Podcast, Aaron said, “I blame Facebook for January 6. Facebook has been, among other things, tuning its algorithm to promote the most divisive material possible.” He directly put some harsh yet truthful accusations on the biggest social media network. He continued, “Because that is what will increase engagement. That is what will get you to—what they call inside the hallways of Facebook—‘the infinite scroll.”

To understand the entire topic of the United States Capitol attack and Facebook, audiences have to buy tickets. Aaron thinks that Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg may prevent the spreading of troublesome information, just by keeping some cool attitude and saying, “‘So how about if I make a little bit less money? I will tune up integrity and tune down growth,’” Aaron added.

Though he has shared significant insights into the story, it is still unclear if the original cast:  Andrew Garfield, Jesse Eisenberg, Armie Hammer and Justin Timberlake will assemble again or not. 

But Aaron talking about the follow-up of The Social Network is not the first time. He had mentioned about it earlier in the year 2021, saying, “There is a way to tell it as a follow up to The Social Network” which he outlined as “Very much worth telling”.
