Fincher's film is still the best drama of the decade.

We've argued this point before but the history books will not look too kindly on the voters for the 83rd Academy Awards because they deemed that The King's Speech was a better film than The Social Network.

Granted, Tom Hooper's film is fine but we'd argue that Fincher's film on the formation of Facebook is still as relevant now as it was when it was originally released because it understands a simple truth about life, ambitious people will always look out for number one and they've no qualms about f**king over anyone that's in their way.

Who needs friends, integrity, or honesty when there are billions to be made?

With Netflix's documentary The Great Hack about to shine a massive spotlight on the recent scandals involving Facebook, now is the perfect time to reexamine the inner workings of the world's most popular website.

During a recent interview with IndieWire, Jesse Eisenberg was asked if he'd be interested in reprising his Oscar-nominated role as Mark Zuckerberg for a potential sequel.

“Oh, yeah. To play a good role in a popular thing is very rare. This was an opportunity to play a complicated character that you’d normally play onstage or an art film, but on a big scale. For me, that was incredibly fortunate," said Eisenberg.

The actor has a busy schedule because he's promoting his new film The Art of Self Defense and he's also got the small matter of Zombieland 2: Double Tap on his plate also.

Aaron Sorkin won an Oscar for his script on The Social Network and Eisenberg said that if anything from the writer of The West Wing and Moneyball comes his way again, he'd be very interested.

“Sorkin is a genius, and if he chooses to write about something, it’ll obviously be interested. But I am not aware of either the project, or even the current controversy of the company," said Eisenberg.

As film fans will know, The Social Network ended with Zuckerberg settling a $65 million lawsuit with the Winklevoss Twins and Eduardo Saverin.

However, the last decade has seen the website become far more prominent and not every story has been good. For example, there's last year’s Facebook–Cambridge Analytica data scandal, and the wider argument about the website's refusal to deal with the issue of fake news.

Zuckerberg even had to testify before Congress last April, when he faced tough questions about the company’s privacy regulations and other pressing issues.

A potential sequel will definitely have plenty of drama.
