Benjamin Button director David Fincher is in talks to direct “The Social Network,” the Aaron Sorkin-scripted film about the formation of Facebook.


The film will focus on the evolution of Facebook from its 2004 creation on the Harvard campus by sophomore Mark Zuckerberg to a juggernaut with more than 200 million members.


The film, which will be produced by Scott Rudin and Michael De Luca, aims  begin production later this year.
