“Googled” adaptation greenlit as “Social Network” scores early rave

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: Hollywood has come a long, long way since “Wargames.”

Audiences were amazed back in 1983, when Matthew Broderick used a massive home PC to hack into our nation’s security system and potentially launch World War III. Now technology has ensured we can watch “Wargames” on a handheld device that’s roughly the size of a postcard if we wanted to. Times have changed.

But our interest, as storytellers, has not drifted too far from the problems computers and technology can cause. One project that’s already in the can, David Fincher’s “The Social Network,” is eagerly anticipated by movie audiences and Oscar trackers. It’s set to open the New York Film Festival at the end of September, but early reviews are making their way online.

They are extremely positive.

Scott Foundas calls Fincher’s work “splendid entertainment from a master storyteller.” His review is spoiler heavy, so avoid it if you want to stay pure. Safe to say, though, that Foundas was impressed.

Will he – or anyone – be equally impressed with a Google movie? Yes, Ken Auletta’s book, “Googled: The End of the World as We Know It” is about to be adapted into a feature film, according to Deadline. I wonder, though, if Fincher’s story – which also is about tech nerds who make good on the Internet – will steal the “Googled” thunder. Is there room enough at the multiplexes for two? Or will “Googled” be “Deep Impact” to “Social Network’s” “Armageddon?”

Time will tell.
