According to Variety , Columbia Pictures is putting the pieces in place to release "The Social Network," a film about the formation of Facebook. David Fincher appears to be the front runner to direct the new flick, who's previous works include The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Panic Room , Fight Club , and others.

As for the movie itself, Variety says the film will focus on the 2004 creation of Facebook by then Harvard sophomore Mark Zuckerberg and follow the social networking site's evolution to where it is today, over 200 million members strong.

This isn't the first time social networking has been linked to Hollywood. A Twitter-based reality show is also said to be under way , which will seek to "put ordinary people on the trail of celebrities in a revolutionary competitive format."
