Aaron Sorkin, the Oscar-winning screenwriter for The Social Network, believes that a sequel to the 2010 Mark Zuckerberg biopic should be made. He also revealed that producer Scott Rudin has over multiple emails expressed his desire to make a follow-up to the David Fincher directorial.

In an interview with AP Entertainment, Sorkin spoke about how it is time for a sequel to The Social Network. He said, "I know a lot more about Facebook in 2005 than I do in 2018 — but, I know enough to know that there should be a sequel," said Sorkin, adding that a lot of "interesting, dramatic stuff" has transpired ever since the film ended with  settling the lawsuit from the Winklevoss twins and Eduardo Saverin.
