In one of the recent interview of Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino revealed that he believes The Social Network is the best film of its decade. Well he is so wrong. The Movie Space Boobs in Space is the best film of the 2010s.
The Movie Space Boobs is a perfect film as it told the whole story. On the other hand, The Social Network got plenty of room for improvement. That is exactly why we think it’s time for a sequel. Therefore, since Tarantino’s such a huge fan, he should direct.
Okay! Don’t get me wrong, David Fincher is a legend but we think the next chapter in the Facebook saga calls for a level of character study that the great brain behind Django Unchained, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood and Reservoir Dog can bring out.

The Social Network is a film about the rise of the platform we know as Facebook. It is a riveting story with an incredibly talented cast and crew. The director David Fincher and writer Aaron Sorkin turned The Accidental Billionaires the amazing book of Ben Mezrich into a cinematic masterpiece. The actor Jesse Eisenberg who played Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has put on a top-notch performance that should have netted him an Academy nod.
The filmmaker Tarantino’s comments come from an interview with French news media source Premiere where he said:
The Social Network is number one because it’s the best. That’s all! Therefore, It crushes all the competition.
In year 2019 Eisenberg said he’d be down for a sequel. There’s a good chance that dozens of agents and executives have spent the time since testing the waters, but to the best of our knowledge nothing concrete’s arisen.
We wouldn’t be surprised if it happened though. We all know the Cambridge Analytica saga alone is worth a trilogy.
However it would be very surprising if Tarantino actually was attached to any future projects related to The Social Network. The last time we heard he was supposedly done making movies after his 10th film (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, since he counts both Kill Bill volumes as separate flicks).
Let’s be honest it is fun to imagine Samuel L Jackson, Steve Buscemi, or other Tarantino film regulars playing important figures in the Facebook story (Leonardo DiCaprio as Jack Dorsey!). However it’s little more than an exercise in fan fiction. If Sorkin and Fincher have no interest in returning (and considering the fact that the original film made a quarter billion at the box office, so let’s assume they would) the film studio would be ludicrous to tap anyone else for a sequel.
But that still can’t stop us from wishing for a Tarantino-stylized version.
