The seed has just been planted for a possible "Social Network" sequel.
Aaron Sorkin better get his pen and paper out, because it looks like the story is far from over: Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss are opening another lawsuit against Facebook.
The original lawsuit, in which the Brothers Winklevoss claimed that Facebook mastermind Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea for a Harvard-based social networking site, ended with a $65 million settlement. Now, the twins claim that Zuckerberg lied to them about the value of Facebook and is guilty of securities fraud, according to Mashable.
Facebook has shot back with saying that the brothers suffer from "settler's remorse," claiming that they calculated the value of Facebook themselves based on a "truthful" press release from a couple of months earlier.
"Settler's Remorse" sounds like juicy stuff (and possibly a great title)! We know that Armie Hammer, who delivered an astonishingly seamless performance playing both Winklevoss brothers in "The Social Network," has been approached to be in Clint Eastwood's "J. Edgar." Could a second turn as Tyler and Cameron be far behind?
We'd see a follow-up movie that focused on the Winklevoss Twins in a heartbeat. Hammer stole the show the first time -- he would own it a second time.
Anyway, we're getting ahead of ourselves -- this story doesn't have an ending yet. Who will win this new lawsuit, and who's going to end up owing millions of dollars to who? Stay tuned!
