A Facebook movie without topless, drug-loving teens? I'm afraid that might be a possibility. After seeing an early screening of David Fincher's The Social Network, Facebook executives are reportedly pretty upset with the how it's shaping up, and I'm afraid the final cut's number of girls offering cocaine off their bare breasts may suffer:
[Producer Scott] Rudin tells the New York Times two top Facebook executives “saw the movie a while ago, and they do not like it".
Movie chiefs have agreed to make changes and are considering deleting a controversial scene in which Justin Timberlake, playing Napster co-founder Sean Parker, gives a speech while teenage girls in the background offer lines of cocaine for partygoers to snort off their bared breasts.
But Rudin has assured cinemagoers the film hasn't been completely transformed, adding: "We made exactly the movie we wanted to make."
This is why only defunct internet companies should get films made about them. You know how thrilled the boys down at Geocities would be to see some coke whores in the background of The Under-Construction Personal Homepage?
