David Fincher in talks for Facebook pic

Aaron Sorkin writing screenplay

David Fincher is in early talks to direct Columbia's untitled movie about the founders of the popular social networking site Facebook.

Aaron Sorkin is writing the project while Scott Rudin, Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti are producing.

If a deal makes, Fincher could be behind the camera by the end of the year.

Fincher last directed one of last year's awards darling, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button." He came close to directing the period Eliot Ness serial killer movie "Torso" but Paramount allowed that project's option to lapse. He still has the adaptation of the graphic novel "Black Hole" set up at that studio.
