For those of you who can’t get enough Facebook (including me), here’s good news: Facebook, the movie, is in the works.

Aaron Sorkin, creator of television show "The West Wing," will develop the project for Sony Corp., Bloomberg News reports.

Scott Rudin, whose past work includes Oscar-winning film "No Country for Old Men," will produce the film, Sony Pictures spokesman Steve Elzer said in an e-mailed message.

The movie will focus on the early days of Facebook, a network that allows users to exchange pictures and messages, Elzer said.

Bloomberg reports that closely held Facebook attracted 132.1 million visitors in June, exceeding 117.6 million visitors at News Corp.’s MySpace, according to researcher ComScore Inc. in Reston, Va.
